Decent baked goods in walking distance of downtown SM?
For whatever reason (sunset at a depressingly early 5pm anyone?), I have been seriously craving baked goods - everything from croissants to cakes to cookies. I work not too far from downtown SM and thought maybe a lunchtime stroll would be in order, but I can't think of anywhere that has really excellent baked goods in walking distance.
Best bet: Tudor House. All sorts of English baked stuff and sweets, lots of choices.
Pain Quotidien is good too.
Vienna Pastry is not bad (1215 Wilshire, a bit of a hike, maybe what you're looking for).
You could check whatever they have at Leonidas, although personally I never get past the fabulous hot chocolate.
there's a new cupcake restaurant in the mall food court....with many different flavors next to hot dog on a stick...haven't tried it yet
Le Pain Quotidien on one hand, Broadway Deli (a devil sin bar can lift the spirits!) on another - and Wednesday at Farmers Mkt: Rockenwagner Bakery last "booth" on SW Arizona
