The original Le Pain du Jour is a go-to spot for delicious pastries and breads on the Westside. Now, Chowhound Ogawak reports that the artisan French bakery has made its second home in an unassuming neighborhood in Hawthorne. Standouts at both shops include the almond and chocolate-almond croissants, tarts, and macarons (pictured).
