La Tartine brings a whole new concept to Almaty; a French bakery with a take-away coffee service. It opens bright and early to cater to worker bees and offers any coffee with any croissant (raisin, chocolate or plain) for a mere 500 KZT. Although there is no seating (at least, for now), the relaxed atmosphere means you can drink your coffee at the counter and have a natter with the friendly staff. Aside from breakfast, an impressive display of homemade baguette sandwiches (including tuna, salmon, chicken and ham) are there for the take-awaying, and for those wanting something warm there are cheese and ham croissants. The remainder includes cakes, éclairs, tarts, the lot; which you can buy by the slice or pre-order for special occasions.
