Copenhagen Pastry in Culver City

Ogawak Jul 8, 2012 06:18 PM

Much different pastries from what I remember from Solvang. Nice, light and buttery. And there's a window from which you can watch the bakers do their thing. Greatly enjoyed the apple and the kringle (almonds). I honestly don't know whether these are the best danish's in town, but they're definitely worth a special trip.

    I'd like to bring a treat to my dog's surgeon tomorrow morning. What would you recommend from Copenhagen Pastry? It seems like the Kringle is the perennial favorite. Thanks!

      Kringle is great, but I would bring the Dr. a selection. They seem to change up their offerings.

        Thanks, Ogawak. Any particular favorites? Perhaps, they might have them in stock tomorrow. Much appreciated.

          If they have Danish kringles, I'm so there.

            you can get the full kringle there too not just a slice. I also like the snails (cinnamon roll kind of things). my wife and her family is danish -- we're big fans of karen and her team.

            I brought the surgeon and her staff a Kringle. I also had Karen, the owner of Copenhagen Pastry, put together a selection of her favorites. I recognized the Copenhagen, Diamond, Nougat Crown, and Spandauer in the box. It was a big hit at the animal hospital!

              Thank you for reporting. I understand they are opening up a shop in East Pasadena.

                Great news, Ogawak! They would be a welcome addition to that neighborhood.

                I forgot to add that they have wonderful customer service - very personable. They even delivered the pastries curbside since I couldn't leave my dog unattended after her surgery.

                  Any idea when or where, Ogawak?

                    I had read it was near the corner of Rosemead and Colorado. I don't know the exact location, though.

                      Thank you! I'm looking forward to their arrival, but my thighs are not!

                      3731 E. Colorado Blvd is the address for their new location in Pasadena. Eater LA says opening is March 2014. That puts them near Yang Chow and just down the street from the Original Tops.

                      Amusing info at their website. What we call Danishes here, the Danish call Viennese because these "Danishes" originated from Vienna. Now I wonder what Vienneses taste like.

                        I know - it was funny in copenhagen that they are essentially "vienna bread" -- you can also have a franska dog there (their hotdogs as superior as their pastries)

              just when i was able to again fit into my "normal" jeans. . . . . . .

              unlike maison du pain, this place is on one of my regular routes.
              i'm in deep trouble.

                CHANGE YOUR ROUTES!!!!!!!!!!!!!
                You have no hope after one pastry. We bought six different items for the three of us and made it to the bus stop before we turned around to lay in a real store. More experienced eaters just hung out in front to shorten their round trip. I will be aided in my exercise of will power by being 3000 miles away.

                  Been going regularly for a couple of weeks now. Great pastries and also try their rye bread. Their chocolate-coated marshmellow treats are a nice light treat as well...

                    Just want to echo what bulavinka said about the rye bread a year ago: superdense, nutty-tasting, really really good.
