In 1981, the first La Bou store opened its doors. It was an astounding success.
Each day hundreds of eager customers would line up, sometimes even in the rain, for a chance
to purchase owner Trong Nguyen's handmade croissants.
Since those early days, La Bou Bakery Cafe has expanded to company-owned stores and franchised units all serving delectable croissants and strong, aromatic espresso drinks, in addition to pastries, soups, salads and sandwiches.
In 1990, La Bou joined forces with Capricorn Coffees, a notable and respected San Francisco roaster and purveyor to restaurants and retail outlets throughout the country for over 45 years.

In 1999, we made it possible to enjoy La Bou in the convenience of your workplace when
we began La Bou Delivers, catering to the business community. Let us bring La Bou to you!
