Bakery or deli open early Sat. morning in Chinatown?


I have to be at an all-day business meeting in downtown LA this Saturday, and I thought it would be great to pick up a quick breakfast in Chinatown before I'm stuck in a boring hotel conference room all day. I'm looking for a Chinese deli, bakery or cafe that's open by 8:00 am. Excuse my ignorance of what might be found in a Chinese deli or bakery, but I'd love to have some dim sum-style dishes, like pork buns - I'm not a fan of pastries, I definitely need a bit of protein. I also love congee, but I wasn't sure if any of the places that serve it in Chinatown open early Saturday morning.

thanks for any recs.

  1. Family Pastry on Spring Street by Ord is open at 7am 7days a week.

    1. My favorite place for dim sum in Chinatown is CBS Seafood. It opens at 8:00 a.m. everyday and has very good congee. Here's a link:
