“Classic french bakery in Oakland”
When it first began in 1977, La Farine was located in the then quiet, undeveloped area of College Ave. (between Alcatraz and Claremont) in Oakland. The bakery had a hand full 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. Fast forward to the year 2011, and La Farine finds itself in the midst of 4 bustling neighborhoods in Oakland and Berkeley – all teeming with stores and people in search of quality shopping – and has 80 full and part-time employees. Gone are the leisurely hours of operation…we’re now open seven days a week…and no more vacations in August. But, through it all, La Farine has stayed true to its founding traditions…bringing quality French baked goods to its customers and enriching the neighborhood experience of its patrons. And, in keeping with its commitment to neighborhood, La Farine donates leftover products to area food banks and senior centers and generously supports East Bay Area schools. Although known throughout the Bay Area, La Farine products are only available at our retail locations. We are rarely 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. Since 1977, our customers have started their day with the legendary morning bun from La Farine French Bakery. Located in four vibrant neighborhoods in Oakland & Berkeley, La Farine offers the finest in French pastries, delicious fruit and nut tartes, classic cakes, cookies and rustic breads. And for that special day, La Farine’s wedding cakes are the perfect balance of elegance and flavor, custom designed and crafted with the finest ingredients. So, whether you’re out for your morning coffee and croissant, or after the classic compliment to your evening meal, stop by La Farine, relax at one of our family tables and bask in the ambiance and aromas of the Bay Area’s classic French Bakery.
