I remember a few years back there was talk of bringing back the Helms Bakery in Culver City, but nothing ever came of it. Until now: according to their website it's back on.
It's described as a cafe that will serve breakfast and lunch as well as a bakery. There's no date given for the opening, but while we're waiting we can check out some Helms bakery treats being sold out of their beautiful vintage Helms truck on the grounds of the Helms Bakery District (Thursday - Sunday, 12 noon to 4pm only).
I can barely remember the Helms trucks as a child. I think I came in at the tail end of their service, but I do have vague memories of the sliding drawers and how good their baked goods smelled and tasted. Hopefully the new cafe will live up to its history. I would love to see the return of the Helms brand to Southern California.
