LA BARANTINE

"La Barantine is a french Bakery café. They have grown in the last few years + I absolutely love their vibe, their kindness + the quality of their products. A small space where you are able to feel like you are travelling in another part of the world. From bread, to cakes, to coffee, it's the whole package. LOVE IT!!"
