This was a very tranquil spot that requires a fair amount of walking if you are using public transportation. A loaf of their pumpkin bread was $12 but so delicious. We spent a few minutes sitting in their courtyard and chapel area - much needed...More

The Monastery is a lovely little piece of solitude in Hollywood. If you enjoy "under-the-radar" food destinations, definitely come here and take home a few loaves of the delicious pumpkin bread. Yes, it's $9.00, but you're helping the nuns keep their cloister open. The bread...More
