Don't know why but the french are taking over Fountain Hills with a new restaurant and two weeks ago a real French Boulangerie. The Boulangerie is named "La Tartine", located a block west of Goodwill at 16650 E. Palisades, #103. (480-816-4222).
My first experience this morning I arrived a little after 8. They have two types of baguettes, traditional and original. One has a thicker crust and they say lasts two days, the other should be consumed that day. Full selection of pastries, tarts and other wonderful goodies. A few tables for eating there, I spoke with them about getting some outside french tables and an expresso machine. If they had that I may never see Starbucks again.
