Mr. Holmes brings the Cruffin to Highland Park

mr. holmes bake house

HIGHLAND PARK —  Mr. Holmes Bakehouse, the San Francisco-based creator of the Cruffin pastry, recently opened in Highland Park, Eater LA reports. Long lines of customers curious about croissant-muffin hybrid have been spotted outside the new bakery, located off of Figueroa Street. The space comes with a somewhat open prep-and-bake area in the back, a lengthy cement bar, and pastry cases filled with their famous croissant-muffin filled with cream, among other sweet treats. Caffeine abounds, with the choice of coffee, espresso and green tea.

There’s also a plan in the works for expanding to wholesale baking in the large art-deco space. Mr. Holmes Bakehouse is located on the 100 block of S. Avenue 59 in Highland Park.

  1. The two times I have driven by, I saw a sign on the front door that said “sold out.”
    Glad to see they are doing well.

  2. LOVE what they’ve done with this building. Just beautifully renovated. I hope this type of cool renovation spreads all over Fig. It’s amazing to have this level of detail in the neighborhood. Super cool.

  3. More of this please!

  4. This area is getting so much cooler! Hooray for gentification!

  5. $4 for a pastry, No thank you. Lots of other choices in the hood for much less $$

  6. All of those places in the hood are great, great too! But, I gave Mr. Holmes pastries a shot and LOVE, LOVE them all! I’ve gone back for more. The $4 buck pastries are worth it! Welcome to Highland Park!

  7. Can’t wait for PMS! lol

  8. I went in to take a look at the place before it opened. I noticed the windows off to the side had already been tagged. I pointed it out to the manager “that’s too bad you already got tagged” he shrugged his shoulders and sed “no worries, it’s part of being in the neighborhood”. They accepted the neighborhood for all that it is: diverse, culturally rich, and mixed with different socio-economic levels. And that’s HLP now.

  9. Alfredo- I am sure they are used to it. They have locations in in san francisco right in the city,
