The Hotcakes + Evil Twin Buzz

Hotcakes Bakes, Culver City’s favorite neighborhood bakery, welcomes our sister concept Evil Twin to our shared space. Opened in January 2023, Evil Twin was founded by mother-son duo Elfie Astier and Dylan Weiss, operating both a bakery and bar under one roof. While Hotcakes continues to feature the delicious baked goods and a made-to-order brunch, Evil Twin provides an international selection of high-quality, hand-picked wines and craft beers paired with locally sourced, seasonal bites.
