Even better than a European bakery

Everything is baked fresh each day. Rustic breads and typical European style bread and pastries. Crepes are made to order. It's a family owed and run business, the only bakery of it's type in the area.

Brilliant little french bakery in Community Market. Wonderful breads, pastries, breakfast casseroles. Delightful staff, awesome food, you can't go wrong! People are lined up here for a reason, it's worth it!

We purchased bread and pastries from this bakery twice in the last week and the quality and value is outstanding. If you purchase these items at the Saturday Farmers Market in Forest, Va. plan to wait on line more than 15 minutes. It is worth the wait!

Great place to get good bread. Always a line on Sat morning. Just wait your turn and you won't be disappointed in the flavors.

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!
