Frances Bakery and Coffee (Little Tokyo)

By in 06: Downtown LA, Favorite Food Entries

Being a lover of Japanese style French patisserie, I never knew about Frances Bakery, even though it’s been around in Little Tokyo for a long time. The exterior is very non-descript and dated looking. The interior is very hole-in-the-wall as well, despite the attempted rococo molding. My crappy photo doesn’t do the cake justice: they’re […]

Sluka (Vienna: Ringstrasse)

By in Favorite Food Entries, Vienna

Out of the city center along the ring near the neo-gothic Town Hall, there’s Sluka, another historic confectionery since 1800s, frequent by famous clients like Sisi, Oskar Kokoschka…etc. The interior looks like it hasn’t been update for a long time (and not in a good way) that it’s a little bit grandma-feel so we prefer […]
