Hamada-ya has the best curry donut that I've ever had. I have purchased their bread off of the small shelf from the Mitsuwa in San Gabriel but buying it fresh from the actual bakery is even better. The bread was so fresh.
Other than the curry donut, I also really enjoy their pizza toast and the croissants. They have a large variety to choose from, especially if you go earlier in the day. Things start to run out and selections become more limited as the day goes on so if you arrive in the evening, there won't be a lot of bread left.
Right now for their anniversary, they bake these special red bean bread. I think there are only 30 a day and they go pretty quickly. I didn't try one but it looks pretty good.
You don't get the bread yourself like at Chinese/Taiwanese bakeries. Instead, one of the workers behind the cases of bread will greet you and you just have to tell them what you want.

This bakery reminds me of what we'd buy everyday for breakfast while we're in Japan. They have very nice, fine pastries and the prices are decent. Wouldn't hesitate to drop in for dessert every chance I can get.

You can find this great Japanese bakery inside the Misuwa market just by the cashiers. They have so many amazing looking pastries it's hard to just choose a few. I went with the Japanese pumpkin croissant (pumpkin is seasonal), which had a great pastry crust and delicious cream filling. The pumpkin cream puff is also good if you like a softer pastry crust. Their pastries are not too sweet but still flavorful. They also have some delicious sounding breads that I'll have to try next time.
