Barb and I tried Patisserie Lebeau's French bread today. It is a steal at $1.75. Light, but substantial texture! Crisp, but chewy crust and not flakey. A definite find! Highly recommended.
As if we needed another reason (in addition to their wonderful baguettes, eclairs, waffles, etc.) to go there! Please check it out. You won't be disappointed.
