Authentic Danish Pastry

For those of you who long for the taste of authentic Danish pastry, wienerbrød, check out Copenhagen Pastry in Culver City: 11113 Washington Blvd Culver City, CA 90232 - just East of the Washington Blvd & Sepulveda intersection.

They opened Saturday June 30th, so I had to stop in and try the kringle. That's usually my go to test for Danish bakeries. Most bakeries I've tried make it too sweet or too soggy or add extra things to it. But Copenhagen Bakery's kringle was PERFECT! Not soggy. Light and yet buttery with all the perfect tastes that make it a truly Danish pastry. It tasted like my mormor (grandmother) used to make. Oh, I can't wait to go back this weekend and grab something else to have with my 3pm coffee.

    thanks for the heads up, now with Hygge it looks like we have 2 Danish bakeries in town!

      Just in case anyone doesn't already know, Hygge Bakery's original head baker (Henrik Gram) is at Copenhagen Pastry. I haven't been to Hygge since he left (coincidental, not because he left), so I can't say if they've gone downhill or not.

        I've eaten at both, though at not Hygge since about when Henrik left. I think Copenhagen Pastry tastes even better. And I'm the type of LA girl/Danish-American who will drive an hour if I can get the better pastries.

          Oh... that's good to know! I liked HYGGE better when Henrik was there. For some reason, after he left... HYGGE got rid of all my favorite pastries there... like their plum pastry [the actual name of it escapes me]. I also recall that their version of the mini-pizza was really good. (Just wish COPENHAGEN PASTRY were closer to where I live.)
