Show 260, February 10, 2018: Restaurateur & Baker Tarit Tanjasiri, Crema Café, Seal Beach

Tarit Tanjasiri of Crema CafeBaker and restaurateur Tarit Tanjasari closed his popular Crema Café in Seal Beach late last year for a total remodel. It originally launched on Main St. in 2006. It feels more open now as the wall between the Bakery & Café was removed.

“The Crema Cafe is a European-inspired restaurant and bakery in beautiful downtown Seal Beach, California. We serve breakfast and lunch 7 days a week. Our menu offers classic favorites and delicious new alternatives. From our famous sweet and savory crepes to our tempting pastries, hearty sandwiches and fresh salads, we offer a variety of great breakfast and lunch choices.”

“Our artisan bakery offers a full range of fresh-baked goods. We use the finest ingredients like real butter and wholesome grains. Our assortment of handcrafted breads includes our signature 7-grain Crema Multigrain bread, sourdough and raisin pecan. See our schedule for a complete list of available daily breads. You can also indulge your sweet tooth with our enticing array of cookies, muffins, scones, sweet croissants and macarons, baked to perfection.”

“We invite you to dine al fresco on our airy patio or in our cozy interior. Our patio is pet-friendly, so feel free to bring man’s best friend along, too (please make sure Fido is on a leash).”

We’re on the rise with Tarit.
