    1. brussels, are you extending an invitation to your house for Cinnamon Rolls?

      Thanks, i guess i'll have to wait on the ones at the Fair in September (?) unless someone else chimes in in the meantime.

    2. Don't laugh but...someone gave me a bite of their McDonald's warm cinnamon roll and (much to my surprise), it was quite tasty.

      1. This topic has been around.

        La Maison du Pain on Pico.

            thanks for chastising me on the topic.

            but i must be dyslexic or something since i got the two bakeries confused all the time. the la maison du pain on Pico in Santa Monica with the bakery also on Pico in Mid-City (near where Hauser crosses Pico).

              Not chastising, just informing

              This would be chastising! ;)

              I always always always agree they are the best however the last time I bought the usual 8, a few weeks ago, I brought them home and they weren't their usual crispy, flaky on the outside self.
              They were not that's that flakiness that sets them apart.

              1. re: latindancer

                Wonder if they were day old or did they put a glaze on them? I hate glazes, they take away the crispy flakyness!

                OK, I had to try. Just picked up a couple for my breakfast on Sunday. Can't wait to enjoy them.

              3. I haven't been to any of the fancy places but I like the ones at Polly's Pies in Long Beach.

                1. What kind do you like?

                  Royal Donuts at Sepulveda/Palms has great ones

                  Also, in the valley, K's Donut Emporium at Bev Glen/Ventura

                  Surprisingly, Ralph's makes one - well actually they make two versions - the good one comes either in a square black plastic box, and has a thick cream cheesey frosting on top - they sell a round version in the bakery, but the boxed ones are better only bc they have slightly more cinnamony filling. (the other one comes in a rectangular aluminum tin and has a frosting glaze, not cream cheese. these are dry and blech.) the good ones are great when heated up.

                    If you like the big, round crispy fried then glazed kind, I really like the ones at Royal -- they are in the middle of the strip mall on the S/E corner of Sepulveda and Palms, south of the Trader Joe's. The proprietors there couldn't be more hardworking and friendly. Their crumb donuts and twists are also excellent.

                    If you like a lighter raised baked then iced version, you can't do much better than Primo's. On the east side of Sawtelle, just north of National.

                      You had to go and mention Primo's again....
                      Well, off to Sawtelle in the wee hours of the morning to get that buttermilk bar fix.
