For coffee hounds, Café Dulcé in the Japanese Village Plaza is a must. From cortados and cappuccinos to a great Vietnamese iced coffee, you’ll find excellent options here for getting your java fix, with hot and cold coffee made with beans from various specialty roasters (most recently, Madcap Coffee Company beans were in the hopper). Grab a green tea donut or a donut hole topped with Fruity Pebbles, and sit down at one of the tables outside watching the ebb and flow of Little Tokyo.

Inside the Japanese Village Plaza in Little Tokyo, Cafe Dulce is a gem of a donut shop! This is especially the case if you like unique donuts with a Japanese flair, such as green tea custard donuts (my favorite!) or roti buns with a mochi-like texture inside. They also have smaller donuts, like little donut holes, in flavors like Fruity Pebbles and bacon. The only thing is that they don't have new and seasonal flavors, which I would love to see... it would give locals more of a reason to keep coming back on the regular. Also, they don't make their donuts throughout the day (only in the morning), from what I last heard... so they aren't as fresh if you go towards closing time. It's a fun place to stop by while exploring all that the Japanese Village Plaza has to offer!
