La Farine Restaurant Review

: The air outside La Farine, a French-style bakery on College Avenue, is heavy with the aromas of sugar and yeast. Inside, the staff dispenses morning buns, pain au chocolat and brioche, which you can enjoy at the communal table. The breads, from a walnut-wheat levain to a rustic baguette, have the yeasty tang of well-fermented dough and crisp crusts. Tarts and cakes, such as the hazelnut chocolate torte, will make you the toast of the next potluck. Smart East Bay brides order their wedding cakes from this local joint, which also sells ready-to-bake all-butter puff pastry. Other locations.
