La Joconde Pastry- La Crescenta

I found La Joconde on Chowhound originally, but somehow I can't find that original post. I was looking for a bakery up here on the hill (Crescenta Valley area) that is good.

I'm so very glad I went. I have tried a few things there, and I have given French-style tarts from there, to rave reviews. They make apple tarts, pear tarts, berry tarts, and the traditional mixed fruit tarts. The shop I gave the treats to said they were fantastic, and wanted to know where the bakery was.

I tried the macaroons (one of my weaknesses), and another time, I tried their dark chocolate covered almonds and hazelnuts. My husband really liked their coffee, served European style.

It's a family run business, and they're attentive and helpful. I plan to continue visiting this great little place, and I'm so happy to have found them!
