I like cream pan. My father loves it. Too much. He visits every morning, so often that Cream Pan should probably be broken out as a budget item in his house. I'm not supposed to eat dairy anymore, but the strawberry croissant is usually worth the agony.

I always bring these strawberry Danishes for special parties/gatherings. I'm also a fan of their red bean breads. They're such a treat. I've also tried their curry before and while it's on the spicy side for me, it is still very tasty. I highly recommend them.

Great crossaints! It's a perfect snack or potluck contribution. Everyone loves the crossaints filled with custard and strawberries. Not too sweet and great texture. It's my "go to" item to bring. Go early and depending on time of day, don't be surprised to wait in line. They have never been out of it so that's a plus! I really haven't... More

This place is famous for its fresh strawberry custard croissants which were delicious. There are many other delectable bakery items available, but their signature creation is the strawberry croissant. I have had curry buns here in the past and they are also very appetising.The service is amazingly fast, even if there ( and this is very often the case) a... More

Several times, I had co-workers bring the famous strawberry filled croissants to work for parties. I decided to finally go. It was recommended that I go early, so I went at 6:30 am on a Saturday and there was already a line of 6 people in front of me. I waited about 10 minutes (not bad, just for reference). I'm... More

The Cream Pan makes some of the most delectable pastry creations I have ever had. The line starts early because the food is so good. Hot out of the oven apple croissants (get there by 6:30 AM) are the best version of apple pie I have ever eaten. The filling is sweet and enrobed in a flaky pastry fillo dough... More

Worth the wait in line in the morning. Strawberry custard croissants are always a huge "hit" at the office or parties. They sell some of the prettiest pastries, breads and breakfast sandwiches and for lunch or dinner their curry is wonderful.

I felt I going back in Japan! The cream is fresh and yummy, cheese cake is comparable to uncle Tetsu but you don't have to buy a whole cake. Parking is very easy. We will go back every time we're in LA/OC area.

This place has the most spectacular dessert I've ever had: strawberry custard croissants. The pastry is light and flaky, and the custard is the perfect creamy texture. I regret that I only purchased a 4-pack, as I wanted all four to myself. My hubby liked the nitro coffee, and my daughter also liked the bean paste buns. We'll be back,... More

The quality of the baked good is hard to beat, the only problem is your eyes might be bigger than your stomach, not necessarily good for the hips but yummy just the same.
