La Farm bakery in Cary. Any experiences?

It looks very good, but only got there at the end of the day (they were pretty sold out).

Their sign said they also have baking classes. Has anyone heard how good these were?

  1. Haven't done the baking classes, so I can't help you there. My girlfriend is gaga for their croissants (she particularly likes the chocolate almond). She also likes grazing through the little samples they always have out. I have had two pastries and a loaf of challah from them and I haven't been particularly overwhelmed on any occasion. Nothing overtly "bad" but missing that indefinable spark that makes simple grains, water, and yeast into something extraordinary.

    That said, I must acknowledge the lines that form out the door. A lot of people buy a lot of their products a lot of the time!

    Other positive factors include very pleasant and cheerful staff, an interesting assortment of items, evenly split between breads and sweet pastries, and unusual flavor combinations.
