La Brea Bakery

Nancy Silverton is credited with single-handedly introducing Angelenos to the joys of the fresh, flavorsome loaf. In the two-plus decades since her store opened, she's become a household name and her store has grown into an international operation. The bakery's newest home on the corner of La Brea and 6th Street—which opened during its 25-year anniversary— is larger than ever, accommodating space for lone diners to sit at the counter top while sipping on coffee and a pastry, or groups of friends to camp out in the café's dining area, where they can munch on turkey avocado sandwiches followed by arguably one of LA's best chocolate chip cookies. It's an institution we hope will last for another 25 years—and then some.

The new(-ish) building is handsome and the service is always really friendly. It's hard to walk out of here without a chocolate chip cookie. The turkey avocado sandwich from the counter is super tasty, and I like that it comes with a side, but it's just way too pricey for what's essentially a pre-packaged meal.
