Sweet toothin' on a Friday!
We're on a MAJOR hunt for the best sweets and treats in LA. And thank the heavens full of cookies, we found Refinery 29's list of 22 best desserts in Los Angeles.
Check out these sweet places we bookmarked as "MUST GO TO NOW OR DIE UNHAPPY":
1. California Doughnuts, 3540 W. 3rd Street, Los Angeles, CA 90020
If you’re looking for a unique yet classic donut stand, look no further than California Donuts. They offer some of the best classic donuts as well as a large variety of unique donuts you won’t find anywhere else in Los Angeles or the world. Famous for their Homer Simpson (think The Simpsons), Matcha Green Tea, Lucky Charms, Fruity Pebbles and Oreo covered donuts, you will definitely want to try each!
2. Carmela Ice Cream, 7920 West 3rd Street (near South Fairfax Avenue)
Ditch that half-eaten carton of ice cream that's been in your freezer for years, and head to Carmela instead. Though it's hard to go wrong with this unreal, handmade ice cream and sorbet shop, the Raspberry Rose Sorbet is possibly the most refreshing thing EVER.
3. The Pie Hole, 714 Traction Avenue (at South Hewitt Street)
Have you ever had an Earl Grey pie? How about Maple Custard? The made-from-scratch delights at The Pie Hole are anything but ordinary — and that's a very good thing.
4. Bottega Louie, 700 South Grand Avenue (at West 7th Street)
Bottega Louie's macarons are so insanely stunning, that it's easy to assume that there's no way that they taste as good as they look. Correction: They do. Go ahead and taste the rainbow.
5.Harajuku Crepe, 9405 South Santa Monica Boulevard (near North Beverly Drive)
By using Mochi powder in their crepe batter, Harajuku Crepe makes the most unique crepes we've ever had. Often served with a scoop of ice cream inside, they're truly a decadent treat.
