So the hubby and I checked out B1 Breadshop on Abbott Kinney today. I tried a brioche and my husband tried the pain au chocolate. All I can say is "wow". We ended up taking home a couple of baguettes, as well some ham-and-cheese croissants. This is the real deal – an authentic french bakery.
My only complaint is when we got there at 10, the shop was still waiting for a delivery from their downtown location. However, since it was only their second day, I expect they'll have this worked out soon. The nice woman at the counter treated us to free french press coffee while we waited.
We'll definitely be back.
Here are a couple of quick photos
