Demitasse Pastry Update – No More Allen Bakery

Good news, bad news.

Bad: Cafe Demitasse has lost its pastry provider, Allen Bakery. This is bad news considering they were pumping out kouign amanns better than Bouchon.

For now, Demitasse is slaking our carby thirst with KAs and chocolate croissants from Bread Lounge in the Arts District. Talking to Bobby, the owner, it seems like this is a stopgap while he finds a new source. He reports they sprung the news on him with just a couple days’ notice.

Hit the jump for the good news.

The good news is that Allen Bakery is going to go brick and mortar! I don’t know the details, but I hope I get to benefit from this new development because they might have a chance to become one of the better bakeries in LA.

Here’s my previous excitement about the KAs from Allen Bakery

Pictured above is the Bread Lounge KA I got. Unfortunately, it was not great. A bit stale, little caramelization, really bready.
