Belwood Bakery is like a little slice of Paris—in a Studio City strip mall. Ignore the awkward placement of this quaint shop and follow the smell of freshly baked bread instead, which leads you inside a coffee shop that shows off baskets of loaves on a shelf and rows of cookies and cakes under a glass counter. The coffee is nothing special; for a regular cup, you pour the coffee yourself from a tureen, and their cappuccinos are comprised of more milk than is necessary. But the sandwiches are worth pulling off Ventura Boulevard for (try the rosemary chicken sammie), and the pastries are the best kind of breakfast indulgence. Sit outside on their ivy-enclosed patio, or escape the Valley heat by taking advantage of the AC blasting inside the cafe.
