Between the potato-stuffed croquettes, cranberry cheese walnut bread, and melon pan filled with sweet, sweet custard, walking into Roji Bakery is like entering the gates of heaven. That is, if heaven was filled with baked goods (we hope it is). Located in Beverly Grove, this new Japanese bakery churns out beautiful, fluffy pastries that look like they were ripped from a Pinterest mood board - and luckily, taste just as good as they look. We recommend almost everything, from curry pans to seasonal sweet purple potato danishes, but our favorite thing is a Roji staple - an almond cookie-encased chocolate croissant that’s sweet, crunchy, and combines most of the things we love in this world.
