FOODIE FRIDAY! La Brea Bakery at Downtown Disney

Wow!  A week has passed already, and we are well into January.  Once again we visit dining locations at Downtown Disney on Disneyland property.  As we all know, Downtown Disney at Walt Disney World has been renamed Disney Springs, so that should alleviate any confusion.

This week, we take a look at the offerings and ambiance of La Brea Bakery.  This looks like an interesting place and I have a feeling the place smells heavenly with the scent of the legendary, freshly made bread.

From the Disneyland website I found the following description:

Handily located near the entrance of the promenade, La Brea Bakery Café is the perfect spot to stop!
Fuel up for the big day ahead with fresh-squeezed juices, coffee, baked goods or a delicious frittata at the La Brea Bakery Express, or take a seat on the heated patio for a casual table-service experience amidst the bustle ofDowntown Disney District. Serving brunch and dinner, the café features a menu that blends classic favorites with new creations inspired by founding chef Nancy Silverton- with a grand assortment of the same fresh-baked-daily breads that made La Brea Bakery a household name.
Brunch fare includes brioche French toast, eggs Benedict, a lox & bagel smoked salmon platter and braised short rib hash, as well as light and healthy choices like steel cut oatmeal and granola with yogurt and seasonal berries. Or take your pick from appetite-pleasing sandwiches like California grilled chicken on a rustic roll, tuna salad on toasted honey whole wheat or pastrami Reuben on Izzy’s rye. Looking for a different kind of slice? Treat your taste buds to artisan pizzas, such as sausage and mushroom, Margherita and BBQ chicken.
Guests with gluten concerns still have plenty to choose from with freshly tossed salads like the Greek, Caesar, Niçoise, Nancy’s famous chopped Italian or the star-studded California salad, made with sun-dried tomatoes, dried apricots, goat cheese, candied walnuts and white balsamic.
Dinner specialties include mouthwatering entrees of grilled salmon, chicken cassoulet and ribeye steak. Be sure to pair your meal with a selection from our wine and beer menu for a most enjoyable evening!

Watch chefs in action in the newly added open kitchen, where a state-of-the-art wood-stone oven cranks out focaccia, artisanal flatbreads, baked pastas and, of course, La Brea Bakery’s fresh pastries and breads. Look for all-new menu items as well as the return of many house favorites.
Also part of the expansion and upgrades: a new express kitchen and counter-service area with fresh food displays, a dining space awash in welcoming earth tones, and awning-covered outdoor seating with ceiling heaters, fans and newly planted shade trees, all enhancing your comfort and convenience like never before.
