The Best Bakeries in LA

Cake Monkey

Starting with a local bakery just around the corner from your L+O apartments in North Hollywood for rent. With an eye-catching pink exterior and cheerful details, the storefront is convenient for those who want to grab a coffee and breakfast croissant as part of their daily routines. The gorgeous cakes, mini-cakes, and signature desserts draw people from all over who previously could only special-order items from Cake Monkey’s commissary kitchen.


There is so much to love about this Santa Monica bakery and café. They serve up an all-day menu of pancakes, grain bowls, breakfast burritos, and more. Best of all, their loaves of bread and pastries are organic!

Bread Lounge

This polished artisanal bakery and cafe offer guests plenty of choices. Just to name a few, there’s the pumpkin cake, their cinnamon rolls, fruit crumbles, cookies, and European pastries. It is the perfect spot to stop by for a quick bite on your way to work from your L+O apartments for rent in North Hollywood. Either that or for an afternoon bite before they close at 4 pm.


When you walk into Republique you will immediately notice sweet, mouth-watering goodies. From croissants, cookies, and tasty baguettes, everything here is fresh and undeniable. Start at the counter, make your way into the main dining area, and you’ll see why you’ll be begging to come back time and time again.

Aroma Coffee and Tea

Our last spot is a short drive away in Studio City. Like many of the spots on this list, Aroma’s baked goods come in fresh daily. Even better, many of their selections come from different local vendors. When you buy from Aroma you are also supporting local, independent businesses. As far as must-try items go, they don’t always have the same goods in stock. If you happen to be there on a day when their mint fudge brownie is there, be sure to get an order of that along with the carrot cake.
