I hate doing these closed posts, but both of these are places I reviewed and liked, so it's particularly sad. Aun Deli in Pasadena was a sweet little Japanese cafe, but hidden on a side street, it seemed a bit forgotten when I had my wonderful healthy salmon bowl there a few months ago. This place could have used a bit more marketing and a better location.
And Fritelli's Doughnuts in Beverly Hills, located in what should be renamed the sugar triangle instead of the golden triangle, had what must have been a very pricey Canon Dr. storefront for its gourmet doughnuts and excellent coffee. I liked Fritelli's sophisticated doughnuts, but maybe between Madame Chocolat, Sprinkles, Boule, Fulfilled, etc., Beverly Hills was just getting a little too sugary.
