La Farine Bakery has the best Fruit Tart in East Bay. We always phone order in advance to make sure, since they sell out quickly.

We originally lived a few blocks from the original La Farine on College in Berkeley and were delighted when they opened on Piedmont Avenue, as it is close to our new house. Great pastries, wonderful cakes.

Delicious pastries, including morning buns, croissants, bread, cookies, and other delightfully sinful items. I sometimes grab a box of pastries on the way to work to treat my coworkers. One evening, they served me 5 minutes before closing, which I really appreciated.

A favorite of our family for several years, La Farine has the best Morning Buns and cookies. My favorites include their Ginger Cookies and the Jezebel Cookie, which is like a crispy fruitcake cookie!! Staff is quite friendly. My favorite morning stop on Piedmont Avenue!
