LA Times had an article about Hygge Bakery yesterday on the frontpage of the Food section

Beyond coffee shop Danish

Sweet and savory pastries and bread lure Danish immigrants and lovers of fine baked goods to Hygge Bakery in downtown L.A.

"Coffee and Danish": You can't help but think of a stale pot of truck stop brew sitting next to gunky jelly-laden pastry. But that couldn't be further from the original.

Another incredible taste sensation

darcinethomas.comReview from Adventures in the World of Mobile Knowledge Workers

"...At the first bite, I thought I'd died and gone to heaven. In my many years of pastry eating, I don't think I've ever had anything like it. The bottom layer is a little crunchy, but softish on the top, and tastes like marzipan..."
