We were really looking forward to try pastries here since I read a lot of good reviews but we were disappointed. We took two types of pastries of green tea (which is their specialty) and they weren't so tasty. The coffee wasn't so great neither....More

This place is a surprising find for me because it is located amongst the various Japanese restaurants within Japantown. I only tried the pastries - donut ( bacon and one other cream filled one) and green tea roti and the chicken pesto sandwich. They were...More

Yum! Really good textures and flavors of donuts. Had my first ever bacon donut and it was a great play of sweet and salty. Pricey but worth it. One of my sweet stops while visiting Little Tokyo.

My wife and I came here while waiting our turn at Daikokuya Ramen. The donuts here are great and the coffee will keep you sharp and awake no matter how much you've walked. Just ignore the crazy homeless guy shouting at the donuts.

The sandwiches, baked goods, coffees and teas are soooo good! The chocolate hazelnut cookies are one of the best cookies I have ever tasted! I would love to get the recipe!

Came here with the spouse on a lovely Sunday afternoon. The service was great and very friendly. The iced blueberry matcha latte was awesome! The doughnuts and roti that we tried were good.

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
