Looking for fresh, warm baguettes that taste like they're from a neighborhood Parisian bakery, not baguettes from the market chain that taste like cardboard...any recommendations?

thanks foodies!

    Delice Bakery is pretty good. Good prepared food as well like the omlet sandwich.

      you might try la maison du pain on pico east of hauser.
      they are closed on sundays.

          Bread Bar on Robertson and third. The Baker is Erik Kayser, could be spelled wrong, but his breads are great

            There was a long string not too far back. Enjoy

              Might I suggest a French-Vietnamese option, like MR. BAGUETTE?

                Pain du Jour in Santa Monica.

                It's far and away the most strictly urbanne Parisian-style baguette in the city, though they do also have a selection of more rustic loaves. It's run by Bruno Commereuc's brother, and much of the daily output ends up at Angelique Cafe. The croissants are also strictly Parisian, crisp, light and buttery. But...

                They have a very limited selection, and very limited hours. When they run out, they close their doors for the day.

                  Concur. The baguette is offered with dark or light crust, depending on availability.

                  I believe the hours are 7-noon everyday now.
