A Patisserie with a Zen Garden, how cool is that? The style of the pastries is European with Asian influences - subtle and delicate. You don't even need to have a sweet tooth to fall in love with this place.
The nice lady working there recommended Passion based on my preference and it was indeed exactly what I like. Love that sour and sweet tropical flavor. Everything else I have tried were excellent as well. A lot of their more popular pastries sell out often so come here early to get the best pick. Great place to hang out with friends. I wish I could bring home a box of the macaroons. Oh well.. perhaps next time.Recommended for:

Located on the Venice's Abbot Kinney Blvd., a prime street for shopping and dining, Jin Patisserie delivers great tasting Asian inspired baked goods and a garden-like patio to enjoy them. I first learned of this cozy place after watching it on Food TV's Sugar Rush when is it was featured for its unique fusion style pastries.
Their menu features individual sized cakes, chocolates, sandwiches, and an eclectic selection of tea. I highly recommend ordering their high tea special ($17-in the picture below). It gives you a great sampling of everything that Jin has to offer and is a great value considering their prices. It also includes a pot of tea. I also recommend the Jin, Green Tea, and Louvre cakes. They are so thoughtfully crafted and look so artistic; I almost felt bad taking a bite. Although tasty, I don't recommend ordering their sandwiches ($12), since the "pastry boutique's" strength is baked goods, I would stick to what they are famous for.
Their outdoor heated patio provides the ideal setting to sip some hot lychee infused black tea and a piece of chocolate Desire cake. It's definitely the ultimate LA experience. Avoid going there with more than 3 people, limited seating will make it difficult to find a table.

Check out this cute little place and their unique Asian (jp) + French fusion bakery. Although it's a bit on the pricey side they probably have some of the best French Macarons I've had since Aix en Provence, FR.
Also try the various cakes ... I'd recommend the Spring Bouquet and the Chocolate Mousse. Both excellent choices.
