Best bread in West LA or BH

pnutbuddah Aug 21, 2012 02:02 PM

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

    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.

      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.

            "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.

                  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.

                    Does Bouchon sell their brioche?

                      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.

                      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.
