L’Amande Bakery & Café, (9530 S Santa Monica Blvd., Beverly Hills, CA 90210; 310.326.8980) loves baking with almonds…L’Amande means the “almond” in French, after all. They find almonds to be fine, have a subtle flavor and distinct texture that’s perfect for breads and pastries. They aim to have all their products be simple, authentic, and crisp, using traditional French recipes.
They are now serving Beverly Hills breakfast, sandwiches, salads, handmade breads, pastries (hazelnut chocolate croissants, honey almond french nougat), along with espresso and cappuccino. Their full menu is here and their bakery menu is here.
Open daily, 8 am-6 pm.
