On La Brea, a small brick patio hides an excellent pastry shop. Don’t be fooled by all the young ladies flocking to The Sycamore Kitchen for a Stumptown Cappuccino after their yoga classes — keep your eyes on the kouign-amann. Don’t make the other pastries jealous, and order the bostock, the financier, and a few buttered galettes. If you’re worried about still being hungry, The Sycamore Kitchen makes an excellent chorizo and scrambled eggs sandwich: it’s one of the best in town.
