This La Boulange seems to have better food and service than the same restaurant in the City, and I don't know why. Also, the tables outside are so pleasant on a Sunny afternoon. The coffees are excellent, and the staff is polite and friendly. I almost always run into a friend with whom to chat over coffee. For lunch I... More

If you like bread, you may like La Boulange since many menu items, even desserts, are bread-based, it seems. The kale/swiss chard salad was ok; the duck confit hash special was bad (they ran out of duck so i asked for turkey instead - they used either processed sandwich meat or a turkey roll - not real turkey meat). The... More

I live and work around the corner from La Boulange, and would love to come more often. The salads and sandwiches are delicious, if pricey (but it's Strawberry so that's no surprise), and of course the coffee is delicious. It gets pretty crowded around lunch time, and parking can be tricky, but it's worth it to grab a seat outside... More

I came here specifically for the bread pudding and I wasn't disappointed! The workers were confused on how to serve it, but I helped them out. Told them it should be warm and that sometimes it comes in a sauce. The bread pudding was extremely moist. Not too sweet. Not too bland. No frills. For the people who like pure... More

Our daughter is in love with macaroons! La Boulange had a nice variety to choose from. They're a bit pricy (all over the city!). She was excited to have them packaged in a pretty box for the plane ride home. Sorry to hear this establishment is owned by Starbucks.

We were looking for coffee and a snack before some of the stores opened in Strawberry Village. Enter La Boulange. The interior is lovely and warm-feeling. The pastries are decadent. I had a chocolate croissant while my husband had the almond. Both were heavenly. Service at the counter was prompt and friendly with a smile and I wasn't made to... More

tasty and quick in a lovely courtyard setting. salads, sandwiches plus coffee drinks. there is no table service, you wait in line to order and then they bring it to you. We love the smoked salmon sandwich, comes with greens on the side. They also make a nice plain turkey sandwich on a roll that my young daughter likes.

I love dogs, I have had them all my life. I do not put them in my purse, take them in stores, hide them in the movies or tie them to food tables. I exited Woodland Pet in Strawberry, a large pet store, across a narrow street from La Boulange with some tables basically on the sidewalk. An aggressive breed... More

Love this place! There is also one in Novato, CA. The Smoked Trout Salad is my favorite with the nut bread. Also enjoy the olive mix on the condiments tray. Serves complimentary water.
