Quickie: Village Bakery & Cafe

On Wednesday, I stopped by the new Village Bakery & Cafe on Los Feliz Boulevard at the site of the old LA Bread. I really liked LA Bread's sourdough boule and other breads, and luckily, the same baker is still making the same breads for the new spot, but there is a whole new line of pastries.

The maple bacon scone was delicious. The scone was flaky and buttery but not at all dry. The maple was subtle and the bacon wasn't overwhelming either, consisting of small pieces in the dough which managed to stay moist and chewy through the baking process.

I also had a blondie and an almond bar, both of which were good but not exceptional. The maple bacon scone was the real standout. They also have breakfast and lunch menus.
