La Farm Bakery review image

La Farm Bakery

Even though it’s a 25-minute drive from downtown, La Farm Bakery in Cary is worth finding an excuse to go to the area, whether it’s for the North Carolina Museum of Art or a hike in nearby William B. Umstead State Park. This French bakery has scones, cookies, pastries, and a white chocolate baguette that definitely counts as bread, not dessert. There are also sandwiches like the Croque Madame, or the grilled cheese made with three cheeses and mornay sauce. Finding a seat can sometimes be a pain, but tables turn quickly despite the fact that no one ever wants to leave here.

Parker and Otis

Parker and Otis is in a kitschy gift shop in City Center, so after spending $20 on candy and things you don’t need, get some of our favorite sandwiches.
