LORD HAVE MERCY..pastry basket at Anisette

Just had breakfast for the first time there. The pastries in the breakfast basket are UNBELIEVABLE. THE most delicious pain chocolat, raisin brioche, and croisssants. The buttery goodness is beyond description.

        When I got the French Breakfast, the basket came with a croissant, muffin, and brioche.

          I got mine with 1 croissant, 1 pain au chocolat, 1 pain au raisin and 1 pain au lait (that could be mistaken for a flat brioche). All were insanely good, and came with jam and some butter whipped with vanilla bean.
          For some reason they charged me less than what was printed on the menu and they didn't charge me for my 2 espressos (espressi?) which, for the record, is one of the best espresso I've ever had in LA.

            Well, I must've been jipped! My waiter gave me a choice of either a plain crossaint, some kind of custard filled croissant, or the pain au chocolat. But she was clearly new at the job(did not bring me the OJ until I was able to flag her down and ask for it which was pretty much at the end of the meal) and seemed confused in general.

            1. re: baloney

              the custard-filled croissant may have been the pain aux raisins, it's round-ish, looks a bit like a coil or even a danish.
              Going back on the various Anisette threads, I tend to agree that the service is somewhat clueless, but being French I never expect good service anywhere, especially not in a French brasserie even if it's located in Los Angeles.
