On my way home from the orthodontist I saw a sign for a new pastry place. It's called Isabella Pastry, and they specialize in European pastries - there must have been almost a dozen different varieties of baklava! plus they had cakes, chocolate, croissants, and more.
I tried a salty/sweet ring shaped cookie, and a sesame pistachio cookie in the store, which were very good! I bought a variety to have at home.
They're located on Hawthorne just south of PCH:
