La Farm Bakery to Add Café

I was excited to receive a press release today announcing that La Farm Bakery in Cary will be expanding by adding a café where they will serve lunch and dinner in a manner that will complement their wonderful breads and pastries.  You may recall that I spent a wonderful morning last winter working at La Farm, kneading and baking bread, getting to know the master baker Lionel Vatinet.

Tartines, those French open-faced sandwiches, and pastries will be available in the mornings, while the later menu, available until 9pm, will showcase soups, salads, cheese and charcuterie plates, tartines and pizzas. With the addition of a full kitchen, classic dishes such as eggs benedict, croque madame and others will be offered.  They’ll even have wine.

The new café will feature a communal farmhouse table for 10, as well as seating at café tables for 50 indoors and 25 outdoors on the covered patio.

    I’m curious as I think I’m more of a baker than a cook.. That is doing desserts and breads more than working with meat and I had seen that LaFarm offers “classes”.. and with my birthday coming up.. I was wondering what your experience was aside from your article.. that is would you recommend it and what books (for beginners who want good bread) would you recommend?

    It’s about time! They always run out of sandwiches at lunch!

  3. Susan,
    We cant wait to spoil you with our cafe. We sell short our sandwiches so they can be made fresh through the lunch hour – so I am so sorry the team was not better at communicating this message to you. Our system current is not efficient and we to look forward to having a more logical, faster service, especially during lunch. Please print off this response and show at the store for $10 towards your next lunch with us. Please feel free to use now or after the cafe opens. Thanks for sticking with us through our growth and thank you sincerely for caring enough about La Farm Bakery and our team by sharing your comments i helps us. Many thanks!!! Missy Owner La Farm Bakery
