Nature's Brew - South Los Angeles

New bakery just opened near USC. I got two pastries to go and they were both delicious.
Also the cashier girl was super friendly.

When I was there, it was very quiet, everyone was studying, I guess. So I'm not sure if this is the good place to chat loud with friends.

Choco twist $3.50 and Burekas $3.25
Choco twist had lots of choco chips and some vanilla cream.

Burekas was filled with lots of mushrooms and onions. I just loved it.
