So I am doing some research on bakeries in Los Angeles and would like to put together a list of some "must-visit" bakeries. What I am looking for are places that have an exceptional or enjoyable atmosphere, places that are charming or unique, as well as providing some terrific baked goods. Ideally, I'd like to stay out of the Valley, but if anyone can think of a bakery therein that must be visited, I'd make the schlep. If there is a cafe or restaurant as part of the bakery, that's fine, but even better is someplace that offers just baked goods, sundry sweet treats and even bread.
Some of the bakeries I have been thinking of visiting: Susina, Boule, Jin Patisserie. Your Houndish insight is greatly appreciated.
