Bakery like Bread & Butter

I was sad to hear that Bread & Butter Bakery closed down - my wife really enjoyed the breakfast and their baked goods.

There seem to be a lot of new bakeries around LV - can anyone recommend something like Bread & Butter?

I'd say the vibe would be homey, delicious, serve breakfast or lunch (optional, but would be nice), not too delicate or fancy. Pastries more important than donuts, cakes, etc.

For what it's worth, our favorite bakeries in Los Angeles are Semi Sweet, Porto's, Sycamore Kitchen and Proof.

Thanks in advance,

  1. Having been to ALL your favorites, the first that strikes me is Bouchon - the bakery is far better rounded out than the one in LA. Chocolate and Spice would be another to consider, as would be Bagel Café. Chef Flemming's out in Henderson is excellent - though just a 'bakery' without proper breakfast/lunch. Sugar Bees would also fit that criteria. La Belle Terre is excellent and serves some sandwiches. Suzuya is Asian themed with sweets and crepes - quite good - and there is also Layer's or Lulu's, though their goods didn't particularly wow me.

      Excellent advice, and thanks very much. Your blog is a great resource!

      Since you mentioned Bouchon, and we seem to have similar tastes in baked goods, would you recommend them or another bakery for the best kouign amann in LV?

        La Belle Terre if you get there right when they open. If not, Bouchon is best.

        Sadly there are no Jewish bakeries here. When we have visitors from LA, they know to bring us a bunch of goodies from Bea's in Tarzana ( got to have their chocolate chip danish), Viktor Benes and Porto's. The European style bakeries here seem to be too expensive.

          I use to live near Bea's. Fortunately, they do ship via UPS. Have you tried Manan Bakery? Very good and not expensive.

          1. re: mucho gordo

            Bagel Café does an alright job with Jewish baked goods.

            1. re: uhockey

              I'll have to try Bagel Cafe. Manan looks about the same as Leopold's and Beau Monde; all feature European style pastries that are too fancy for everyday enjoyment with a cup of coffee. How is Freed's?

              1. re: mucho gordo

                You are incorrect on Manan - much of it is quite rustic, and Leopold's is absolutely terrible; I've reviewed both recently.

                Freed's is good - mostly for cakes; good textures and quite sweet.
