“Fantastic French bakery on a vineyard. Weekends only during the summer and into fall. Very popular with the locals and visitors. My favourite is the lemon tarts amongst many sweet and savoury foods. Enjoy the lovely patio in the summer overlooking the vineyard. This is a family run business and is very busy so plan to go early if possible to get a table. ”
