Address: 833 W Torrance Blvd, Torrance, CA
Just a few minutes south of LAX, Deutschland’s most delicious delicacies are on display at this old-world German grocery store. Provisions include beer & booze, bon bons & chocolate, charcuterie & cheese, cakes, breads, marzipan, and more. The adjoining Alpine Cafe offers an authentic assortment of classic European fare – cabbage rolls, goulash, bratwurst, potato salad, etc.
Across the parking lot, over by the white chapel the Village’s outdoor shopping plaza consists of several Bavarian boutiques: i.e. antiques, cosmetics, cuckoo clocks, collectibles, shoes, toys, a museum, and even a small playground; full list here.
Whether grabbing goodies for yourself or gifts for a loved one, this historic landmark is definitely worth the trip – and much more affordable than a flight to Frankfurt!
