Don't let the confusion of where the line forms when you walk in the door during a crowded lunch hour dissuade you; you'll soon figure out which line is for lunch and which group is buying bread for takeout. You'll be glad you stayed. The line moves quickly, and the made-to-order lunches don't take long to prepare.

We like the chicken salad on croissant or the quiche Lorraine, but there are many more delicious offerings. Afterwards, pick up a loaf of fresh bread or one of the delightful pastries to take home.

Everyone is very friendly here. The atmosphere is bustling and cheerful. We go very often and highly recommend La Farm.

Went 2 times this week. Just consistent good food.
We had a problem with Chai not tasting right.
The waitress was not helpful so talked to manager. She immediately bent over backwards to make us happy. It was such a pleasure.
The croissants are to die for. We have been to France a lot and they are equal ignoring not better than the best of France. That includes George Cinq and Bristol hotels in Paris.
Prices have gone up some but still a great deal.

I had lunch with a friend at La Farm on a weekday right around noon. It was in the middle of the lunchtime rush and the restaurant was jam packed. There were very few seats available, but there were a couple at a counter and there was one empty table. The tables are very close together and the restaurant was almost completely full, so it was noisy and a little bit chaotic, and I expected that the service might be slow.

However, our food arrived within ten minutes--we shared a French dip sandwich and each got a different soup--French onion soup and tomato bisque, the soup of the day. All of the food was very good and the bread bowl that is available with the soup is a must try. Wow, it was delicious! The soup was served in a soft, stretchy and very fresh bowl made of bread. What's not to like except for the calories?

The bread was made from local organic flour and the food all tasted as if it had made made from scratch on the premises. Lunch was about $10 per person, so it was a bit on the expensive side, but the quality and flavor of the food was way better than a typical sandwich from a fast food place or chain sandwich shop.

We've always loved getting a fresh baked item for La Farm, but recently myself and two co-workers went over lunch.

All of our items were delicious and adequately lunch sized. It is definitely on the pricey side for a sandwich based lunch (~$9), but you can't beat quality ingredients on quality, fresh bread!

The seating is limited, especially on colder days when the patio is less palatable, so try going outside the rush times.
