The LA Times says “visit us”!

In case you didn’t know, there are multiple French’s bakeries. But there is only one French’s Cupcake Bakery! It’s a pretty big difference, as pointed out by the LA Times:

“There are two French’s bakeries in Costa Mesa, under different owners, so be sure to go to the French’s on 17th street if you want to grab a “Hawaiian bran muffin.” Moist and full of texture, it’s crammed with chunks of pineapple, covered with walnut halves, sweetened with molasses and honey and flavored with cinnamon, nutmeg and a few other spices. The chewy, nutty texture comes not only from the walnuts but from the combination of whole grain and bran flours. Not a bad way to start the day. (Hawaiian bran muffin, 70 cents.) French’s Bakery, 273 E. 17th St., Costa Mesa. (949) 642-0571″
