Reviews

“Everything is moderately priced (croissants- $2.25, mini pies/tarts-$4.95, cookies-$1.25) and eye pleasing.”
“The macaroons and the coffee are reason enough to go, but do NOT - under any circumstances - leave without buying a ciabatta.”
“And my newest addiction, the granola scone, is beyond description.”
Pros
  • But, I fretted, what if their food wasn't as good as their decor?
  • I found a marvelous three-course menu, including dessert to make, we'd get some good wine, it'd be cozy and perfect...
  • After sampling some of the goods at the Mister 312 event and knowing it was in my 'hood, I decided this was the place we'd get our third course...
  • After a good ten minutes of perusing the case (and a quick trip the ATM, cash only), we decided on a piece of the double chocolate cake and the raspberry eclair, appropriately shaped in a heart for the holiday...
  • The chocolate cake was pretty good too, but we both agreed the raspberry was where it was at...
Cons
  • I did enjoy my croissant, but the iffy bakery location and bad coffee just didn't make up the difference...
  • I am going to take back every bad thing I ever said about this place...
  • Not a bad place to hang out and have a meeting, but beware since there is no public bathroom...
  • But it's way too expensive, and the coffee is pretty awful, especially with Swim Cafe just down the street slinging some pretty great java...
  • They were also out of Challah :-|Mistakes in three out of our four orders is bad...
  • The dough was over-worked and the amount of butter that had soaked back into the pastry while it baked caused it to have a heavy mouth feel and bad texture...
Service & Staff
  • I've been watching from the window of my studio for the last four months, waiting and wondering when La Farine will open...
  • Friendly service?
  • A beautiful, not-crowded place to eat breakfast in Chicago on a Sunday morning?
  • I had to get it myself (I hate that) out of one of those carafes that could have been sitting out for hours and hours...
  • Unfortunately, after several visits I have concluded that their service is inconsistent at best and many of their pastries look much better than they taste...
Food & Drinks
  • It's more than just another bakery/cafe because it's the ONLY coffeeshop on our stretch of Milwaukee...
  • Well, today they opened their doors to the neighborhood with a fabulous feast of free food -- mounds of sandwiches, inventive salads, pastries fresh out of the oven, cake, Proseco and peaches...
  • Oh, and a heart-shaped cookie sandwich cookie with raspberry jam with two coffees for there...
  • )We took our (Intelligentsia) coffees over to one of the cute little tables and traded bites of the cookie...
  • The Offense:Temptation by indecent exposure of deliciousness...
  • Ugh, I hate wasting food and money...
  • And a large cup of coffee...
Atmosphere
  • End of world atmosphere...
  • The decor of the bakery is sparse but kinda interesting at the same time...
  • The bakery has a nice atmosphere, though the temperature is a bit cold...
Prices
  • And the ingredients would set us back over $30...
  • A beautiful lox & bagel plate for $6,75?
  • " I spent over 6 bucks for this and I am disappointed...
  • Six bucks for a loaf of stale bread is ridiculous!
Summary
  • Everything is moderately priced (croissants- $2,25, mini pies/tarts-$4,95, cookies-$1,25) and eye pleasing...
  • I've been buying commercially from La Farine for a very long time and am so glad he finally got this adorable little storefront open...
  • I've been waiting for LaFarine to open for a long time - I finally visited it a couple of days ago...
  • My recommendation on this place is to skip the pretty pastries and the coffee and just take home a loaf of the ciabatta...
