Since we had a poster on here recently who was genuinely frustrated by the lack of decent restaurants in JoCo, I thought I’d start a “New JoCo and Area Restaurants” thread where we could post our thoughts about local area restaurants we have been to, discuss rumors about what may be coming, and maybe talk about what we’d like to see around here in the future. Although it’s not in Clayton, and is located a mile or two away from downtown Fuquay-Varina on Hwy 55, I dropped by “La Farm Bakery” today, which opened as a “pop-up” just two months ago in order to “test the local market”, according to an employee there. Not sure how long they’ll be there, or if there’ll decide to open a more permanent place, but La Farm is operated by a talented French baker, who also operates several other La Farm Bakeries in the area, and bakes using fresh, high quality ingredients. And even though, it’s advised “never to eat anything bigger than your head”, you can’t go wrong with their humongous Bacon and Cheddar biscuits, which are beyond delicious, and could probably substitute for an entire meal. They also offer an assortments of amazing, European-style breads, croissants, desserts, spreads, and specialty coffee drinks. So, if you’re wanting to try a new place, and pick up some decent bread for later on, this might be a good option. It’s like having a little bit of France in Fuquay. Enjoy! Update: Good News! La Farm Bakery has extended their pop-up venue in Fuquay through the end of August 21, 2021.
