Ring Ring (Yes, young people, people still use phones to actually talk and not just text)
JustJenn: Free for lunch?
JustJenn: I need to eat something light...big dinner tonight.
Me: Hum...let me think.
JustJust: Oh! I know! There's a bakery I want to try!
Me: Coming over.
Yes, when we think meal, we actually think bakery.
David Schat's Bakery in El Segundo, CA. El Segundo is one of the South Bay beach cities, between Manhattan Beach and the LAX airport. If you've ever driven up to Mammoth, you may have visited Eric Schat's Bakery in Bishop...my parents always bring home Sheepherders bread. Each one of the Schat's Bakery's are independently owned and operated, but they have a long history of Dutch baking.
I'm excited to have Sheepherders bread in the Los Angeles area now...along with some delicious sandwiches and baked goods.
JustJenn and I both got the combo for lunch...
Finally, they sell some Dutch treats such as De Ruijter bread toppings. Holy smokes. I looked over, saw the boxes and I was transported back to the early 1990's. My UCLA roommate, Agnes is Dutch and we had a shelf of the chocolate sprinkles and anise and little pink & white ones in the apartment. She introduced me to Nutella...when you had to buy it at import stores. Oh, the Dutch and their bread. Delicious combos. Great memories.
Anyway, if you are in the South Bay (or have a crazy layover at LAX), I suggest stopping by David Schat's Bakery! They have a breakfast menu too...can't wait to try that! The staff was very nice, service was really fast and there is plenty of seating (outdoor seating area as well). There is street parking and they are next to a city parking structure.
