    Located inside the storybook Tudor building that Andree’s Patisserie called home for over 60 years, the B8kery features such sweet treats as bang pies (an elevated nod to the Pop-Tart) in strawberry, brown sugar, and seasonal fruit varieties ($4 each); blueberry streusel muffins ($4); berries and cream croissants ($5.50); ginger molasses cookies ($3); peanut butter brownies ($5); gluten-free doughnut muffins ($4); orange rolls ($5); cinnamon rolls ($5) and more.

    The new bakery also offers savory items, including the seemingly requisite avocado toast ($6), ham and cheddar scones ($5), and biscuits ($1.25).

    Smoothies like the Super 8 (hemp and chia seeds, banana, berries, almond butter, vanilla protein, coconut milk,  and spinach), the Blue Laguna (blue spirulina, vanilla protein, mango, banana, dates, almond butter, and coconut milk, and Dominique’s Coffee Dream (coffee, almond butter, dates, hemp seeds, banana, toffee Stevia, vanilla protein, and almond milk) run $12 each. The B8kery also has a coffee menu featuring such standbys as iced coffee ($4), cappuccino ($5), and espresso ($4), as well as more whimsical drinks like lavender or churro lattes ($7 each).

    Fun fact: The bakery, like its neighboring Michelin Guide-recognized namesake restaurant, is owned by NHL Hall of Famer, former Anaheim Duck and Olympic ice hockey athlete Teemu Selänne and business partner, Kevin Pratt. “The B8kery,” simply pronounced “the bakery” (not “BAIT-KERY”), uses an “8” instead of an “A” in honor of Selänne’s jersey number, which was retired by the Ducks in 2015.

    Open daily from 7 a.m. until 2 p.m.

    Find it: 1456 S. Coast Highway (at Calliope St.), Laguna Beach;
