My mom and I actually first stumbled upon L’artisan while in pursuit of a totally different bakery/restaurant. We got really into the show Unique Eats on the Cooking Channel about two years back and when a place in Providence got featured we knew we had to check it out. We set out to find La Laiterie at Farmstead in Wayland Square with a lot of excitement only to find that they had since closed and the owners had moved back to Boston where they had opened a new restaurant called Townsman (which we are dying to try out!).
But it wasn’t a wasted trip because while we were driving around, confused, looking for La Laiterie we found the beautiful L’artisan Café & Bakery instead!
