J'laime ""La Farm"" Bakeery

I frequented La Farm Bakery when I was living in Morrisville and Apex. Lovely bread, gorgeous pastries, excellent coffee (I hope they have ""Cafe Creme"" now), and ordered the ""healthy"" breakfast almost every weekend: Yogurt, granola with a side of fruit. Yum, yum. Lived in Paris from late Oct 2010 until early Oct 2011 so I'm looking forward to be a ""fresh"" customer at La Farm. I took two classes at La Farm with Lionel . . . he's an excellent teacher, knows what's he doing and has a great sense of humor. Lionel, watch out, I'm coming back to Cary! A Broad in Paris (Sharon)

Bread, yes - Lunch, watch what you order!

I went in a few days ago to buy some bread and get a quick bite for lunch. The bread is great - no argument there - but the lunch was a disaster. I ordered the hummus and vegetable sandwich, since I really like hummus and I wanted something light. Well. What I received was a single slice of bread (good bread, of course) cut on the diagonal into two pieces. One piece had a very, very thin smear of hummus spread on it - thick enough to see, but not enough to taste. The other slice was bare. In between the slices were fresh veggies. The veggies were fine, but if all I wanted was a no-dressing salad I could have paid a whole lot less than the approximately $8 that I paid for this. I ate half of it, then tossed the rest in the trash. Without any hummus (effectively), it just was not worth eating. When I asked about the sandwich preparation, I was told that my sandwich was prepared correctly. I thought that they might have botched the job, but they did not. they meant to serve it as I received it. I called later and spoke to the day manager. He was quite nice and offered me a store credit, but I declined this; I told him that the best thing they could do, to serve their customers, would be to take this item off the menu. It is a rip-off. And it does not taste good, either.

Beyond Yummy!

This is a bakery I drool for just thinking about the pear tarts. I have begged them to open one in my little mountain town of Boone NC.
My daughter thinks I visit Raleigh more for LeFarm Chocolate Croissants than to see her. Hah!
Not only are the baked goods fabulous, but the service is extraordinary.
They are always so busy but never too busy to be kind to their customers. Worth a trip and worth a visit if you live near Raleigh

Very good breads and desserts, very high prices

I love the breads ( Ciabatta, Asiago Parmesan, multigrain, Challah) and their desserts ( coffee cakes and tarts) and granola. I do not like their pain au chocolat ( Chocolate croissants) or the regular croissants ( they never seem to be fresh). The bread prices are not that bad but their desserts are a little bit on the expensive side.

Best bakery this side of the Atlantic!

This place really does have the best French food in the area. Scones are wonderful as well as the ham and gruyere sandwich, stuffed baguettes, coffee-I could go on. For those looking for ""cheap"" food-you are obviously in the wrong area! A SPECIALTY store in CARY is not going to be around the Wal-Mart price range-you pay for QUALITY. It is by no means any more expensive than you would expect-very reasonable, actually. Also, I have never had bad service-on the contrary, we're always greeted pleasantly when we enter. The bakery also provides a few little tables in front to eat on-also quite a nice experience and as close to France as you are going to get around these parts. I don't think there is any problem bringing kids in here-I have been in on numerous occasions where well-behaved children didn't get a second glance from the staff. On the whole, highly recommended-a MUST if you live in or are visiting Cary.

Best Breads

This place is incredible!!! I feel like I stepped right off the street of Paris and into the most authentic French Bakery and right here in Cary. The staff was so warm and inviting and sampled this fabulous white chocolate mini baguette. We sat outside and indulged in our find as we ate flaky croissant, decadent pain au chocolate and this tender cinnamon bun with our coffee - I am in heaven!!!

Rude and Extremely Overpriced

The bakers and employs are some of the most rude people I have come across in a customer-service oriented business. They stare you down when you sample something . And, if you do not find it to your liking or, more times than not, cannot afford it at their outrageous prices, the looks they give you are downright obnoxious! I presume that the bakery was opened for the pleasures of the Preston residents only. Also, God forbid if you bring children into the shop, every employee has their eye on you! Whole Foods a few blocks down the road has much better service at much better prices.

Ridiculously expensive

I admitt La Farm Bakery's products have good quality and I used to love them. However I started to be disappointed since they keep increasing the prices....actually they are getting more and more expensive almost everytime I visit. Now they charge more than $4 for a loaf of regular white bread! I don't feel like supporting their business any more. You can get decent bread with decent price at The Fresh Market which is located only a couple blocks away. Panera Bread sells pretty good french baguettes too. Also I don't like the fact that they leave the pastries with fresh cream or fruits in room tempreture all day.

Best baguette in NC

Lionel does an excellent job with the breads. I was really happy to find La Farm.
I take the 40 minute trip once a month to buy 8-10 baguettes. (which I freeze them for
the month)

La Farm's other offerings, such as pastries, cakes, other REAL breads are great.

Only O'Bread in Shelburne, VT makes better baguette in this eastern half of the US.

truly authentic french bakery!

We love to visit La Farm and try something new! When my husband visits, he knows he better pick up at least 2 mini white chocolate baguettes for me! We love their baguettes for the dinner table and specialty items for when we have company over- guests are always impressed and ask where it is from! Visit soonand try something new!

Beautiful French Bakery

La Farm has something that no other bakery has in the area: fresh product!! They bake everything fresh in the morning with the best ingredients and no extra chemicals and stuff in it. They have such an awesome selection, I can't believe everything they come up with for holidays!! If you have never been here, you have to stop in and try all of the samples! You won't want to go anywhere else for your bread ever again!!

Hidden Gem in Cary

This is the best bakery in NC. This bakery has the best bread in the area by far. A french master baker, a great staff, beautifully prepared breads! The bakeries and restaurants in the area would be wise to either learn from, or purchase from these people! Try the Asiago Parmesan cheese bread or the La Farm....You will be hooked!

Le meilleur pain in the Triangle

La Farm Bakery has BY FAR the best baguette, croissant and pain au chocolat in the Triangle. The La Farm bread is also very very good. You cannot go wrong with any of the bread there.

A heavenly place for bread lover. Merci!!!!!!
