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 […]

Hotel Sacher (Vienna: Opera House)

By in Vienna

The next day we went to try the original Sachertorte from Hotel Sacher. The restaurant was full, so we went to their cafe side which supposed to have the same menu.
