Every time "Special Occasion Cakes and everyday Pastries" are ordered from La Farine, the resulting products are always super delicious, fresh and out of the ordinary. La Farine Bakery is our favorite bakery for special occasions and for everyday use.

In the College location, the staff is actually speaking French in the kitchen. Chocolate croissants, first thing in morning while still warm = I'm in France! Best morning buns, my girlfriend in L.A. has me bring them on the plane when I visit.

Heard the expression “greatest thing since sliced bread”? It’s true, and (unlike many bakeries) they have a slicer!

Everything here is of the highest quality but the piece de resistance is the fresh fruit tarts. Fresh ingredients and a nice flaky crust - hard to beat and a must have. If you’re enjoying a treat just for yourself, go for the smaller tartlets...More

Excellent service and a daunting and very delicious array of baked goods at Fruitvale branch. Steady stream of customers speaks to quality of products. Wonderful neighborhood gem.
