This is the original location of Colossus, one of LA’s best bakeries with another outpost in Long Beach. They’re 100% committed to using only naturally leavened dough (code for no commercial yeast), and only bake using organic flour. And it shows – their country loaf is thick and doughy, the kouign-amanns are salty and sweet, and the sticky buns combine the texture of a buttery croissant with plenty of pecans. Stop by in-person to select your own fluffy baked goods, or plan ahead with one of their assorted pastry boxes – they come with six sweet treats, based on “availability, farm selection, and whims of our chefs,” and we like to think of it as a breakfast omakase.
