    There is a Victor Benes in Gelson's on Van Nuys Blvd. As an alternative for croissants, Trader Joe's frozen croissants and petit pain au chocolat that you let rise and bake yourself are very, very good.

      Different kettle of fish, but check out Natas Portuguese bakery on the north side of Ventura, just west of Fulton. Here's their web address, http://nataspastries.com/. I really like them.

        i thought of Nata's as well.

        if you were willing to go to Studio City, there's:
        Belwood Bakery
        Le Pain Quotidien

        Belwood Bakery
        12634 Ventura Blvd, Studio City, CA

          Belwood is the best of this trio.

          The Corner Bakery on Ventura is great; especially their muffins
