Schwartz Bakery was established in 1954 as the first kosher bakery in Los Angeles. Since its inception Schwartz Bakery has served the greater Los Angeles community as a staple. The bakery has been family owned and operated for the past 30 years. Originally from Morocco, the Sibony family purchased the bakery from the Schwartz family in 1979. As the Jewish population in Los Angeles grew so did Schwartz's product line. Open Sunday-Thursday: 11AM-3PM / 5PM-8PM. On Friday’s the Cafe is closed, but the bakery is open.
Schwartz Bakery has always adapted to the changing times and will continue this going forward and well into the future. As of recently, a new chapter begins, called Dairy on the Go, a new revamped menu for their cafe.
I would check out some of their popular items, all very mediterranean style, I love the vibrant colors. It’s very California. Give their Turkish Boureka a try, it's a baked puff pastry dough stuffed with cheesy spinach and hard boiled egg. Served with freshly crushed tomatoes. Check out their Zucchini Aioli, its sautéed zucchini with carrots, purple onions, garlic, grape tomatoes, topped with feta cheese and Zaatar. If you like Greek Salad it’s filled with freshly cut to order tomatoes, purple onions, cucumbers mixed in with kalamata olives, parsley, oregano and topped with feta cheese. I wouldn’t miss their Salmon Super Bowl, its baked fresh cut salmon on a bed of warm quinoa mixed with Kale, almonds, purple onions, grape tomatoes , cauliflower and dried cranberries. They also have Rose Pizza served with fresh homemade creamy tomato sauces topped with sliced kalamata olives and melted cheese.

So if you’re feeling your inner Californian, this place is not taking any shortcuts and they’re really coming to the table with something exciting and different. Upscale food and presentation in a casual heimish atmosphere. The perfect brunch place.
