Raffi and Tiffany Septjian, owners of Pandor Artisan Boulangerie & Café, opened the authentic French bakery’s third location in July at 5327 E. 2nd St. in Belmont Shore.
Pandor’s flagship location is in the South of France, but the company got its start in the United States with a location in Newport Beach. The name, according to the company website, “was inspired by the French words for golden bread, Pain d’Or, and celebrates the true art of French baking.” Its wholesale counterpart, TRT Bakery, introduced its artisan breads in Orange County in 2011. The new-to-Long-Beach bakery serves fresh baked breads and pastries, as well as coffee, tea, omelets, French toast, sandwiches, tartines (open-face sandwiches), paninis, salads, soups and quiches. The company also offers catering for parties and corporate events. Pandor is open from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. seven days a week. For more information, call 562/856-7777 or visit www.pandorbakery.com.
