Remember these guys? Sweet and Savory morning buns from La Farine. I’ve written about them before and just can’t get enough of them:
But those who can’t walk out of there with a box like me:
I’ve recently been hooked on their rustic raisin rye bread
and their almond and apple croissants are always a winner
as well as their orange currant scones:
Their apple pastry is perfect with a Mocha Tesora from Philz across the street at their College Avenue location:
Lately, however in Berkeley, there has been all this buzz about Paris Baguette. A friend of mine got me a box of these:
They just don’t have the same fresh-out-of-the-oven-baked-with-love taste as La Farine. Plus, the first time I tasted goodies from Paris Baguette was in South Korea – in Busan and on Jeju island. These chain establishments are just not the same.
Plus, La Farine has cakes. My favorite, as I wrote before, is their Sicilian. Last week, they had a mini version that I couldn’t resist:
Frangelico soaked chocolate cake, filled with creamy pistachio mousse and chocolate ganache topped with white chocolate buttercream- it was heaven. Am so lucky to have them in my neighborhood!
