OMG - the Croissants

Seriously people... Try the croissants! They are the best ever!! Sometimes there is a bit of a wait to get up to the counter to place your order, but the croissants and the crepes are well worth any wait. Awesomeness in every bite.

Bought lunch at Lorraine Bakery on Saturday, 9-13-2014. EVERYTHING is made fresh from scratch in the bakery and they do NOT spare on the quality. So good and very reasonable prices! Give it a try

My wife and I often frequent Lorraine's on Saturday mornings for their delicious pastries and crepes. This is probably our favorite bakery ever!

The bread and pastries were very fresh and tasted divine. I hadn't had bread that tasted like this anywhere but in Europe. I wish there was a bakery like this near me. I would go at least once per week, just to get the bread.

I love to get bread from here when I go to the Lynchburg Market. They make the best rye bread and french bread.

Pick up product from them every Saturday at the market. We love their fresh baked bread and pastries! My son wouldn't survive without his blueberry muffin Saturday tradition.

First and foremost, the croissants are phenomenal. Key lime pie can so often be a sickly sweet, heavy gut bomb, but Lorraine’s key lime tart is amazingly good – with the perfect amount of sweet and tart and a light texture. Every loaf of bread I’ve had has been wonderful, and the madeleines make you understand the hold they had... More

I go to the bakery at least once a week to stock up on fresh made bread. I haven't tried a bread that wasn't delicious! The pastries...yummy! I am hooked on the spinach and feta croissant. The almond croissant is also delicious. Get there early if you want something particular, everything sells out quickly on Saturday morning. The coffee is... More

This is a small bakery inside a modest indoor antique mall. They serve wonderful little pastries and fresh baked breads. It's very European and staff is efficient, owners always present and cheerful. We like the lemon danish and the apple danish. Made with quality and not overly expensive. Each danish is around $3. Lots to choose from...expect long lines in... More
