Paderia Bringing Portuguese Egg Tarts To The Westside

While no one was looking, a delightful new coffee and pastry spot opened recently in Santa Monica.  Readers have been letting me know how excited they are… once they find it.  You probably didn’t notice the little charmer Paderia Bakehouse because it faces the parking lot behind the newly refurbished former bank building at 3032 Wilshire Blvd. (corner of Berkeley).  It took me a while to find it as well, but once discovered, you’ll be rewarded with menu of coffees, teas, horchata, pudding, pastries, and cultishly popular Portuguese Egg Tarts.  Paderia has locations in Irvine and Fountain Valley, but this is the Westside’s first.
