Great Parisian ambiance, food and people! The americano coffee comes either to-go or in a bowl for dipping their amazing pastries into. The Parisian omelette was a perfect meal to start my long day. I’d come back in a heartbeat.

Recommend this patisserie with french influence. You have many pastries like in french pastries shops. Lots of choice for a very good breakfast.

We stayed down the street and ate breakfast here several times. You will not find better pastry...anywhere. The croissants were perfect; the savory breads were delicious, and the apricot tart was memorable. They also serve a beautiful cup of coffee and have outdoor seating.

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants
