Quick, can anyone help me locate the name of someplace I *thought* was associated with the topic 'Alternative To Sweet Lady Jane' (an incredibly long subject). I looked at the place's website once and it was I think on Robertson, a newly opened bakery and lunch place by a woman -- I don't know, I had the impression of "young" and it was very clean looking, with large glass-fronted display cases in the website. --This is silly isn't it, how can anyone help me here? All I remember was it was highly recommended for both lunch and deserts, newly opened, clean bright lines....

      Nope, but thanks for trying -- it was more of a lunch thing also. With the sweetest website... (pictures were pretty; faded in and out I think)

      Is this is? Looks pretty far south on Robertson. From Zagat:
      "Situated practically under the Santa Monica Freeway overpass in the industrial strip that separates LA from Culver City, Dolce Isola, the red-and-yellow-awninged cafe, is actually an outpost of The Ivy’s long-established LA Desserts arm; cupcakes, pies, gelato and sandwiches can all be ordered from the well-dressed staff (ties!) and taken to go or eaten at the modest tables. "
      2869 S. Robertson Blvd.; 310-776-7070
      It must be very close to Sabor a Mexico...looks like another stop for my Saturday Culver City lunches.

          Hmmm...Thank you For Helping!!! But drat it -- none of them is it. That Dolce Isola sounds fun...maybe we'll check it out. If/when I figure it out though I'll let you know. The image of the place is ingrained inside, so maybe we'll just pass it. Thanks so much for trying to help.

          I just love this "place"!

          Mwa.

            Michel Richard's place? I love their croissants! But it has been there for a while, so it's far from "newly opened."

              I was at Michel Richard's a couple of months ago, and it wasn't what I remembered from years past. I've certainly had better croissants; these were nothing special. Lunch was okay, but again, nothing special. Did I hit it on an off day?

                Perhaps Joan's on Third?
