Two of us were walk-ins on a busy Friday night at West First Bakery. Parking was tricky, but found a spot down the hill at a closed auto store. We were told the wait was about 20-30 minutes and the place was full of people. We found one seat at the bar and got a drink. Soon, 2 seats at... More

Really good, unique pizzas from a wood fired oven. Nice ambiance, watch the wood fired oven cooking the pies. Classy decor.

Great pizza, plus other dishes. Salads are unusual and different. Beets, goat cheese, seeds are used frequently in their dishes. Usually go for lunch, but recently we took friends for dinner & I had the NC Fresh Trout. It was outstanding. Wait staff friendly & helpful. They each have their fav pizza. Only thing I wish is that they would... More

West First handcrafts their own pasta, breads and meatballs. The spaghetti and meatballs were fabulous!

Family and I are constantly going back for the pizza! Delicious pizza options! They do have a bar and neat upstairs seating as well as patio seating! The pizza is a thinner crust than what some may be used too but I definitely don't believe it's a downside!

We are local and go to West First now and then. Mostly when we have guests. It is busy because it is good. "Designer" pizza and good salads. Other dishes as well. You will not be disappointed but expect it to be busy in the Summer at dinner time. You can sit on their back deck as well. We do... More

Salad (caesar and beet) were good. Beets were not very sweet. We had prosciutto pizza without arugula Prosciutto was tough and not high quality. Not enough cheese on pizza. Crust and tomato sauce were good

Really enjoyed dinner here - pizza was delicious (goat cheese, sun dried tomatoes, etc.) and splurged with dessert - had to have the apple tart in the apple town. We'll be returning to try a couple of the fresh pasta offerings, which looked delicious.
