when it first began in 1974, La Farine was located in the then quiet, undeveloped area of College Ave. (between Alcatraz and Claremont) in Oakland. The bakery had a handfull of employees and catered to a largely neighborhood clientele. Hours of operation were like those in Europe--open early, go home early. Vacations were always taken the whole month of August and the store always closed after Christmas and New Years for a week.
Although known thoughout the Bay Area, La Farine products are only available at our location on College Ave. We will never be a wholesaler of our products, believing that a visit to our bakery is almost as unique as the products themselves. We will always, however, attempt to accommodate you with warm and friendly service...so please stop by and experience La Farine for yourself.
