If you’re a croissant connoisseur, you have probably heard a thing or two about the confections at Little Pine. From their regular croissant with jam and butter to their almond or chocolate croissants, no brunch here is complete without one (or all) of them!
The owners of this spot are certified holistic nutritionists and live their motto of “love what you do, do it with love,” by using 100% organic and vegan ingredients. They offer a mindblowing amount of intricate pastries and desserts, including fruit tarts, raw pies, crostatas, and tiramisu. To add to the pastry case, they’ve got croissants! You can order their buttery vegan croissant as is or ask for it filled with chocolate. Pair it with their latte art, and you’ve got a deliciously photogenic breakfast!
If you’re looking for a sweet snack before hitting Venice beach, stop by this plant-based deli for their croissants!
