This is my go to place for an excellent afternoon coffee, I like the selection of coffee beverages and the quality of the beans they use. A bit busy at most times of the day and tight accommodations. .. but great buzz

A favorite of my family, my husband and I stop by here when we visit my parents. It is often very busy so we usually do take out, but the food is fantastic and well worth it! Very friendly staff and the owner (famous French baker Lionel Vatinet) is always happy to chat with you. Great food!

It's a busy place...that's a great sign in an area with lots of choices. Sometimes I just enjoy a wonderful soup. Sometimes, like last week, I tried something different...a toast with a smear of avocado, black beans and some other toppings. I usually avoid beans but this was very tasty.

This is the kind of place I've been looking for! Very very good for breakfast and lunch. The bakery was to die for. Walk in and grab some fresh baked bread. Or sit down and enjoy it there.

The food is classic, fresh, and delicious. The busy cafe is a cheerful cacophony of friends, families, and single diners. You may wait for a seat. You may share a table, but the food will leave you feeling well and satisfied. Buy a loaf of bread to bring home. The employees and friendly and welcoming.

Finally, I found a wole grain rye bread without caraway seeds ( I hope, I spelled this right). Beware of the multigrain, it contains honey.( If I am tired of american bread- like fakes it's because these tend to be sweet. My worst taste experience is honey wheat.) All the breads at this bakery were excellent,will keep moist in a... More

La Farm is the best bakery for breads, cookies, desserts, and other bakes goods. They have a small cafe for lunch and light meals that serves excellent food. We have attended a few of the Owners baking classes and they were excellent and totally hands-on

I wanted to smell the French pastry at La Farm, and have a croissant, although I'm on a diet. So got in and the place as always like a zoo bustling with people. There is no place even to stand. It is great for a business like La Farm. With all the commotion there were attentive people waiting on anyone's... More

These folks are serious about their breads. When you enter you are surrounded by a wall of delightful baked goods and they are all so tempting. We enjoyed a Sunday morning brunch there recently and I must say that their savory foods (i.e.: omelettes etc) aren't as good as their breads but it's still a nice brunch environment. And the...

Always a treat to enjoy a Parisian style breakfast with great coffees and personal service. Take home some of their delicious fresh breads and your family will thank you.
