I'll be visiting Los Angeles in July, and I always like to visit bakeries when I travel. (I prefer more traditional bakeries to the trendy new cupcake specialists. Asian bakeries leave me cold, unless they're the kind that also have European-style pastries.) We'll be staying in Hollywood, but will also get to downtown L.A., to Santa Monica, maybe the zoo, maybe USC, not sure yet where else. Does anyone want to suggest great bakeries and recommend their favorite items for each one? (Or is there already a thread on this subject somewhere?) Thanks!!
