Muffins and/or croissants SFV

Can anyone suggest a bakery where i can get great fresh muffins/croissants early morning to bring to a function? West SFV is preferred. Thanks so much.

  1. Bea's Bakery for muffins. I doubt they make croissants though. Call to be sure what time they usually have them ready.
    18450 Clark St-1 block north of Ventura Blvd off of Reseda Blvd
    (818) 344-0100

    1. mrs. beasley off ventura blvd. is expensive but good (for muffins). i like the croissants from victor benes at gelson's market. there is one in calabasas and sherman oaks.

      1. Le Bon Bakery in Woodland Hills has an okay croissant in the west valley area. The best I've found so far though I haven't done a very extensive search. They have brioche and other pastries as well.

        Le Bon Bakery
        21928 Ventura Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 91364

        1. Second Le Bon. Viktor Benes' Actually has OK muffins and croissanta. Look in Gelson's.

          The West Valley isn't terrific for baked goods, beyond Bea's and Natalie's (canoga Park on Sherman Way) and Viktor Benes'

          1. Despite it being part of a chain, Le Pain Quotidien makes terrific baked goods...Their croissants are buttery, tender and flakey and their breads are good...I can't recall if they make muffins...

            Another resource for croissants is Williams Sonoma on-line...They send them to you ready for baking...It's as close to homemade as I'll get with croissants and they're heavenly! It's a real treat for holdiays or houseguests...

              is there a Le Pain in the West Valley? I thought the only one was in Studio City?

              If the OP can come to the east Valley, there are TONS of good bakeries to choose from.

              Belwood, Aroma, Eliat and more!
