Lafayette Bakery & Café is a family-run business that provides the most authentic French bakery and café experience available outside of France. The Vial family, which included father and Master Baker Jean Bernard, mother Isabelle, and daughter/Baker/Pastry Chef Marion, moved from Lyon, France to Carmel, California in 2013 to open the bakery. The family brings with them the French baking traditions and techniques that have been passed down through generations. Fresh, homemade pastries, breads, and sandwiches made with the finest ingredients are available at Lafayette Bakery & Café. Our café also serves traditional French beverages and coffee.
