Lovers of all things Hawaiian flock to The Local Place, a cafe just off the 405 freeway in Torrance. A side venture of the bustling King's Hawaiian bread-makers, the lines at The Local Place are as long as they are swift. Quick breakfast sandwiches are the popular choice inside the cafeteria-like space, since the stiff metal chairs don't really entice you to stay long. But don't be fooled by the savory bento box options or cheap loco moco; it's the bakery section you're after. Hawaiian Paradise cakes offer candied guava, passion fruit and lime all on the same chiffon cake, while seasonal shortcakes and tiramisus are the perfect dessert to take home -- along with a dozen of those sweet King's Hawaiian rolls.
