Le Pain du Four

Has anyone else tried this organic French bakery in Belltown? It's exactly the sort of place you might expect to find in Belltown (where, you will be surprised to hear, there are some new condos going up), but the bread was quite defensible. I got a demi-baguette a l'ancienne and started walking, and before I knew it, the whole thing was gone, along with much of the caerphilly I'd just bought at James Cook. I felt like kind of a yuppie. The loaf was just a bit more sour than I'd prefer in that sort of bread, and the crumb didn't have enough personality, but I can't say I've had a better baguette in town and it compared favorable with some I had in Paris.

Has anyone been there and tried any of their products? They had a selection of pastries and maybe one or two other breads.
