Fodor's Review

For Paris-perfect cakes and tarts embellished California-style with fresh flowers, head to this sleek, serene branch of Karen Krasne’s pastry shop and café, a few blocks east from the heart of Little Italy. The converted commercial space with soaring ceilings hosts breakfasts, lunches, and light dinners, accompanied by a wide selection of private-blend loose teas, coffee drinks, organic wines, and craft beers. For those who don’t want to start with dessert, there are sandwiches, soups, salads, and artisanal cheeses. Then it’s time to satisfy sweet cravings with a slice of passion fruit ricotta cake, a mini banana cream pie or helping of croissant bread pudding. The original shop near Balboa Park, at 2929 5th Avenue, serves only desserts, coffees, and teas.
