Best bread in West LA or BH

Don't have time to drive east to LaBrea Bakery or BreadLounge, so who bakes the best comparable loaves on the Westside?

  1. The Larder at Tavern Brentwood and Milo and Olive. The Larder will slice the loaves for you, Milo and Olive will not.

      Where does SG get their bread for Tavern?

      M&O has delicious hamburger buns, among other bread stuff. But p.i.t.a. to find a parking space nearby most times.

    2. I haven't tried all the bakeries in WLA so I can't say for sure which is best.

      But I do love the bread at Rockenwagner Bakery on Washington and that is where we buy most of our bread.

        How is the bread place at the Century City mall?

      2. Maison Giraud in the Palisades for croissants and baguettes.

          Gonna have to agree with this rec...

          1. "Don't have time to drive east to LaBrea Bakery..." FWIW, you can usually find a decent assortment of LaBrea Bakery breads at any westside Ralphs supermarket.

            1. Bay Cities Deli - and lots of other good stuff to buy as well,

                OOPs - this is in Santa Monica - but the bread is great

                  Worth the drive IMO. They always have baskets of fresh, warm bread. I could get a loaf and some good olive oil and have it for lunch. Problem is, they also have some of the best sandwiches in town.

                  1. Bouchon Bakery in BH and Breadbar at the Century City mall both have very good gread.

                      Definitely Bouchon bakery and Huckleberry in Santa Monica. Huckleberry is owned by the same people as Milo & Olive and have great breads and ah-mazing baked goodies.

                    2. Thanks all. Breadbar was easiest and the walnut fruit, and whole grain breads were very good.
                      I recall the last time at Buchon, we couldn't stop eating the french bread they served.
                      Huckleberry bread is better than Breadbar as well.
