The Low Down
Know Before You Go: Older customers typically go for the raisin double bread and walnut bread, while sweet-toothed youngsters go for the melon pan roll or cachucha, a custard-filled bread.
The Extras: Although it's not written anywhere, you can ask for your pastries to be heated up by a microwave to eat right then and there.
Save Time: The soft, less-than-$3 and perfect-for-toast Sunroyal and British bread loaves sell out almost instantly--arrive before noon to guarantee you get one.
Parking: A purchase of $15 or more comes with a 20-minute parking validation at the Japanese Village Parking structure on Central Avenue.
