Deep in the heart of Little Tokyo’s fun and very touristy Japanese Village Plaza sits Caffe Dulce, a counter-serve coffee shop serving some of our favorite baked goods downtown. While you can’t go wrong with any of their housemade pastries, their Green Tea donut is worth the drive from wherever you are in the city. If you’re in the mood for something slightly more substantial, their baguette sandwich situation is not to be ignored.
