La Banette - Patisserie and Boulangerie
Every village needs a good bread shop, Avalon has three but La Banette is exceptional.
It is not unusual to see a line outside. The hot baguettes fresh out of the oven simply cannot be beaten.
There is a wide range of baguettes - sourdough, olive; also other loaves - rye, fruit loaf, grain, yeast free. Croissants- almond, chocolate, plain. Petit Fours, Quiches, meringues. Also a lovely range of signature cakes.
The shop was renovated a year ago and has a rustic feel. The staff are always friendly and patient. Cash only!
Cost: One fresh baguette = $3
