Ethnic bakeries?

Anyone know of a good and interesting ethnic bakery around Los Angeles, preferably closer to the downtown area?

  1. Phoenix Bakery in Chinatown. Great cakes and Chinese-inspired treats.

    1. Hygge Bakery is right on 11th and Hope. La Flor de Yucat√°n is on 18th and Hoover. Tropicana Bakery is in Downey, on Paramount Blvd. for Cuban pastries. La Monarca is a Mexican bakery on Whitter just east of Atlantic in East LA (with another branch on the corner of Gage and Pacific in Huntington Park).

        And Porto's will be opening in Downey in the not too distant future, for an additional Cuban option!

          Interesting . . . is there a Cuban ethnic enclave in Downey?

          I second Hygge. Get any of the "danish" and a mazarin and you will NOT be sorry! *drool* Tastes almost like you're in Denmark!

            The best thing at Hygge is their amazing dark rye bread. Not that the other things aren't good, but that bread, wow.

        3. Partamian Armenian bakery in West Adams is fairly famous for their lamajune and other Armenian specialties.
