Wonderful Breads and Pastries

I am a frequent visitor to LaFarm Bakery. Lionel, chef and owner, not only produces fabulous breads, but also holds baking classes and I have taken 3 of those. Lunch time is always busy, so plan to go early (11-ish) or after 1 pm if you can. The white chocolate baguettes are to die for!

Just tried the multigrain bread this past week. Had it sliced and it is very good. Makes great toast in the AM and makes a sturdy sandwich. Also, their peach tea is my favorite beverage in all the Triangle.

What a great atmosphere with a variety of good food & pastry, Perfect for Breakfast or brunch with freshly made goods, coffee and juice. Also just stop in to pickup baked goods to take home.

We dropped into the La Farm based on the the Trip Advisor reviews, unfortunately we arrived at midday and in the middle of the lunch rush. Fortunately one of us was able to grab a seat outside (under the heater) whilst the other queued. There are two queues inside, one strictly for bakery items and the other for the cafe.... More

We read about this bakery / cafe in the Our State magazine, and my wife and I (with grandson in tow) decided to drive to Cary, NC to check it all out. Our first impressions were really 2 things: 1) Walking in the front door, we were greeted with both old world charm (decor) and amazing smells (bakery). 2) Every... More

Everyone loves La Farm's fresh breads, bakery items and lunch menu. My daughter and I had a delicious lunch there a couple of months ago, but couldn't leave without buying some bakery goods.

Go here all the time, especially when meeting friends. Love the salads and always end up taking home brioches and breads. Wish the serving set up were a little better around the drink machine and some of the chairs need repair, but the food is always outstanding!

LaFarm was one of the first world class bakeries in our area. The years have not diminished the quality of their delicious breads and wonderful pastries. You must try their white chocolate scone. I haven't had the pleasure of eating in their cafe yet,but I have friends who rave about it. You will be impressed with the quality here.
