Vrej Pastry | Pasadena and vicinity | Bakery, Mediterranean, Middle Eastern | Restaurant
On the weekends, it's best to line up early at Vrej Pastry, a Lebanese bakery in Pasadena. Otherwise, you risk leaving the smallish storefront shop without a taste of the knefe, an airy sesame seed bun that's been split and stuffed with a slightly sweet slice of white cheese. It's a typical Lebanese breakfast, yes, but there is no better knefe to be had than Vrej's. The weekend lines back up the claim. Should you find yourself being turned away at the counter, feel free to console yourself inside a tray of osmalieh or a mound of specially prepared baklava.
