Must haves at Jin Patisserie?

Taking friend from out of town this afternoon/evening before he leaves tonight.

Any recommendations on things we must try?

Thanks very much!

    I think it's all good. I'd only recommend against the high tea. That's the only thing I've found disappointing. Order the pastries à la carte -- with a big pot of tea. Finish it off with a few chocolates; I'm partial to the more unique florals like osmanthus. I think Jin Pâtisserie is a fantastic place; they nail the artsy whimsy Boule tries for but ends up crushing beneath overwhelming pretension. And today is such a lovely day that sitting out in Jin's front garden should prove a wonderful farewell to L.A.
