Layla Bringing Bagels & Coffee To Santa Monica

A sharp-eyed reader (Thanks Robert!) spotted widow paper up on the space at 1614 Ocean Park Blvd. announcing the impending arrival of Layla Bagels & Coffee.  Bagels are a bold move considering they can also be procured two doors down at crazy popular Jayan Isaac Bread.  I can’t seem to find out much more information on this business so if you have any details, pass them along…

Jyan Isaac Bread Coming To Santa Monica

It appears a new bread shop is landing in the space 1622 Ocean Park Blvd. in Santa Monica.  An ABC application on the front doesn’t list a business name.  But a note scrawled on a paper bag on the front door directs us to Jyan Isaac Bread.  What is Jyan Isaac Bread?  The website explains that the baker, Jayan Isaac Horwitz, is passionate about bread and trained under Travis Lett at Gjusta Bakery in Venice.  According to this story in The LA Times, when he found himself out of work due to COVID, he started his own business.  And while he’s already running a delivery service, this location looks like it will be a storefront with food, beer, and wine.  We wish him the best of luck.
