La Brea Bakery Café Restaurant Review

: What began in 1989 as a diminutive neighborhood bakery has evolved into one of the largest purveyors of breads and partially-baked dough, supplying restaurants and grocery stores across the country. Founder Nancy Silverton (Pizzeria Mozza, Osteria Mozza, chi SPACCA), who was also co-founder of now-closed Campanile restaurant, began a tradition of artisanal bread-making in L.A. Her dreams morphed into a massive commercial operation, and the original shop has since relocated to this warm and inviting space nearby. Behind the counter are stacks of bread loaves (brioche, ciabatta, organic wheat, etc.) and in front are pastry cases stocked with croissants, cinnamon rolls and more. Line up for a baguette or chocolate croissant to go or settle in for a full meal at one of the tables or booths along the exposed brick wall. For breakfast, chef Keith Silverton presents frittatas and La Brea Bakery’s famous granola. Later in the day, the offerings include plates of foccacia, salads (baby kale with citrus vinaigrette), sandwiches (ham and cheese panini) and pizzas with toppings like Parma ham and pear. For dessert, you’ll find an apple crisp, dark chocolate molten cake and crème brûlée bread pudding. (Pick up a box of cookies in case you want a sweet snack for later.) Coffee and espresso drinks are available, plus lemonade in flavors like hibiscus or ginger.
