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!

  1. Often has a line outside. Love bakers like this. Sounds like it would be well worth a visit!
