They have a decent selection of pastries and they are not all japanese themed you can pickup regular items like cream puffs and fruit tarts

I stop by whenever I am in Little Tokyo for breakfast. My favorites are the pizza pastry and the hot dog rolls. Their pastry is cheaper than Starbucks and taste better.

Bought myself a little birthday cake here (with fresh strawberries), and we were all a happy bunch. Like the pan and all the other little individual treats, too, and the selection of Japanese imported iced teas. You can enjoy your treats in the benches outside.

Friends turned me into this bakery. The coffee roll so good. Kinda like a hawaiin bread made with coffee instead of water. It's a step beyond good for the soul. Coconut muffin is just as good. Staff is friendly and it's priced right.

This is a favorite spot because of their high quality and fresh baked goods. I prefer it to another nearby bakery in Little Tokyo and have compared the two. Yamazaki has an excellent selection of breads, rolls, and pastries. Their croissants are very good and also the raisin buns are just like what you can find in Japan. A special... More

We sat down outside and enjoyed a coffee with a cupcake. Nice place for something quick in Little Tokyo. They also have other quick foods like pre-made sandwiches and small pizzas and other baked goods.

I've been going here for a few years and I always get the same thing. I actually don't know what it's called. But, I'll try to describe this very yummy treat. A huge triangle shaped piece of pound cake with a layer of cream and a layer of raspberry preserve. I blame a friend of mine for introducing this evil... More

I love this place and always come here when I am in town. It is a family style bakery with very good baked goods and high quality. I enjoy coming here in the morning and one of my most favorite items is the "sugar toast" which is very thick bread toasted and rolled in sugar. It is really good. They... More

On a recent trip to LA my husband & I stopped in while shopping & grabbed a few sweet treats. Before we left to go back home, we made a second stop to bring home some of their unique coffee bread & sweet rolls.

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
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 in the city leading the LA foodie scene, plus it is the location of cultural and sports venues including the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Staples Center, and the Coliseum at the University of Southern California.
