Zut alors! After many months of anticipation, a classic French bakery and café has opened where Nestlé Toll House Café once stood, a stroll away from the Bankhead Theater and Livermore 13 Cinemas. The croissants and pain au chocolat (ask for them warmed) are baked deliciously dark and flaky. A buttery fresh baguette sandwich is layered with ham and speck (a prosciutto-style smoked pork), and a composed niçoise salad is snappy with garden-fresh produce and a vivid tarragon Dijon dressing. La PanotiQ is a fast-growing group of family-owned Bay Area bakery cafés dedicated to sustainable farming practices. Order by the stunning pastry cases, and relax in a charming bistro atmosphere, inside or out. Better yet, get that chocolate chunk cookie with an oversized mug of rich Bicycle Coffee Co. coffee. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily.
