Mr. Holmes Bakehouse, the San Francisco-based bakery best known for their "cruffins"—that would be croissant dough baked in a muffin tin and filled with cream—looks to be opening in Highland Park in the very near future. And good thing; there's nothing quite like a rich, sticky pastry on a hot summer's day, right?

In September, Eater reported that the bakery would be expanding from the Bay Area, and opening a joint wholesale/retail space in Los Angeles. According to Eastsider, the owners have spent the past several months renovating an Art Deco building on Avenue 59 right off Figueroa, and now "August 2016" has been written on the windows. Peeking inside, a neon sign has been put up on one wall that reads, "I GOT BAKED IN LOS ANGELES." We imagine it looks something like this sign up in the San Francisco shop:

Our friends at SFist have extensively covered San Francisco's cruffin craze (say that 10 times fast) spurred on by Mr. Holmes, and we have to admit...they do look ridiculously good.

I mean....

They thoughtfully post weekly "flavor updates" on their immaculately kept Instagram, and judging from previous cruffin iterations, Angelenos can expect flavors like "Pistachio Raspberry," "Mango Coconut Chia," and "Honey Fig." But it's not *just* cruffins, either—they'll have donuts, hand pies, and other pastries—they even made a Negroni-inspired donut, aptly named "The Doughgroni."
