Desserts in general are all very good, and I highly recommend the fruit tarts. For bread the rustic baguette is my favorite. Not clear from the menu/display; they have two types of pre-made sandwiches. The Ham sandwich is the better of the two.

Great place for getting wonderful, delicious pastries. If you haven't tried the Princes Cake, a Swedish specialty, you haven't lived.

This is a delightful bakery. Great baked goods with many choices, cookies, scones, tart, a neighborhood gem. I much prefer this one than the one on Piedmont Ave.

The cost is a bit on the high side, but I am picky about bread. I went to France and wanted to taste what I ate in France at home and I found it at La Farine. First of all, their baguettes are just like what I ate in France. And the cakes and tarts, Oo la la!! I have... More

expensive but worth it for a good cake. I served 200 people with two of their very large special order cakes (need to cut it properly, however, but it will work). The breads are quite good also.
