J Something Bakery

My last Irvine adventure with Mommy…


…was at J. Sweet Bakery


…or was it JJ Bakery?!?


Whatever it’s called, it all looked insane.



From the classic Hot Dog Bun…


…to Taro with Dry Buttermilk…


…Whole Wheat Buttermilk with Walnuts…


…Soft Red Bean + Coffee Bread with Walnuts…


…Onion and Mushroom Danish Sticks…


…Watermelon Rolls…


…Marble Cake…


…and Sweet Tuna Bread?!?



Mommy’s coming to stay with me next week in LA – any Angelenos have tourist advice?

    How about Huntington Gardens & Library? They even do a high tea. Plus, it’s fairly close to San Gabriel – if you wanted to take an excursion out there with your mom. Have fun!

      I second this proposition!
      Huntington has everything from classical art to marble sculptures to gardens from all over the world.
      With regards to ‘Jan,’ Huntington also has a Japanese garden.
      My favourite section has a dozen bonsai trees that are hundreds of years old but still so small!!! ^-^ Some are below 2 feet! ^-^

    There is a beautiful Japanese Garden in Encino on Woodley and I believe it is free. Very Zen and beautiful.

    I haven’t heard about that place in irvine. I’ve just always hear about 85 degrees~!!!

    There are a couple of spots in my area!
    *The Huntington Library in San Marino (Recommended above)
    *LA Arboretum in Arcadia (My mom & sister actually like this better than The Huntington Library.)

    While you’re in the area, you can go back to Din Tai Fung Restaurant!

    If you’re on the Eastside & want something sweet, stop by Donut Friend in Highland Park, next door to Scoops. It’s relatively new and so amazing! I go way too often, especially because of all the vegan options. My fave is Fudgegazi!

    So, I had a question……did your Mom end up moving to Irvine?

      They had bought a house but it’s being rented out now. She’s still living on the east coast.
