Not your everyday sort of coffee shop/deli. The employees are friendly and incredibly helpful even suggesting their favorite "eats."

Fresh-baked truly-French French bread and exquisite sandwiches (grilled Brie and cheese and homemade pâté at the top of the list). Plus imported wines, cheeses, and assorted goodies available nowhere else within 60 miles.

We enjoyed a wonderful omelet, coffee and breads at this shop on Main Street, FarmVille, VA. It was the best meal we had in our two days in town.

The Bakery has great food and bread, but the menu items are not always available and the service is so slow. Unless you order ahead, I wouldn't go there if you wanted a fast meal.

We visited on a Saturday afternoon and there was only one other couple eating. There were at least four employees, but it took 25 minutes to get two sandwiches. I ordered a chicken salad sandwich but was told that it could only be served on flatbread because there was no regular bread. (Bakery?!) The sandwich was brought out HOT and... More

This shop is over looked by most people in my opinion! Great selection of wine and cheese. Even some ciders that are pretty good. Nice atmosphere. If you ever want a place to grab some wine with a friend or significant other, this is the place! Even has an upstairs room that hardly ever has people in it!

When I saw the name, I expected a full service bakery with class cases, with many choices of baked sweets. Instead this place had a large selection of olive oils, wine, some tables for having coffee. The only desserts were some croissants, a few kinds of cookies and a loaf style bread pudding. I walked out without buying anything.

We had lunch. Sandwiches were excellent, but it took awhile. (We were warned of this by locals) It also offers wine, beer and other food supplies.

Jarrod, from "j fergeson gallery" (which I do recommend), suggested this place for lunch. Nice place, typical euro bakery/deli minus the outdoor seating. Look at the overhead chalkboard menu, stand at the counter to give your order and pay. BTW: While we were there, 2 of the 5 customer groups asked if the amount could be right. Total seemed to...

Lunch here makes the trip out to Farmville to look at furniture fun! It does take a while to get your food but it is very good. I had a cup of roasted red pepper smoked gouda soup and half of a sandwich called "The Esteban". It had quince paste, turkey, cheese and was on a toasted baguette. Very yummy!... More
