Frances Bakery now in South Pasadena

Per @TonyC, the lovely little Japanese bakery, Frances, has risen and landed in South Pasadena across the street from the Bristol Farms. Limited items available now, but caneles and profiteroles can definitely be found. Apparently, they’ll be rolling out chocolate truffles before Christmas.
Thanks for the intel!


I loved their peanut cookies! How lovely that it exists again. :slight_smile:

Oh nice! We live nearby, will have to check it out

Great news!

Yes! And better parking situation.

I have fond memories of patronizing the original location with my college roommate. Didn’t get a chance to go back much after we graduated, but I really enjoyed their pastries. Now I can bang-bang once a year when I go to EuroPane for my egg salad and macaron fix.

Since you’re going to Euro Pane, add in an additional bang with a quick visit to Bulgarini!

I didn’t realize that Bulgarini was so close to EuroPane! Excellent…going to save this wisdom for my next trip out that way.


:grin::wink: Couple miles up Lake from Colorado Blvd (taking you by Roma’s, home of “The Sandwich,” too).
