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.
