The pastries at Marla are excellent and the back garden area is even better, provided you are cool with the permanent Richmond fog/cloud cover. You can easily grab pastries to go, but we like to stay for brunch and get some pastries to share as well as some bigger plates - go for the baked eggs or trout plate.
Marla Bakery is permanently closed.
