A few sweet & tasty recommendations from our recent day in Los Angelas!

A Sweet Day in L.A.

We took the boys to Southern California in May for a week full of fun and I’m so thankful we were able to squeeze in a lot of yum!

We just had a day in L.A., so we made the most of it and went around to a few tasty places we had on our radar.

Bottega Louie Restaurant and Gourmet Market

700 S Grand Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90017

We started at Bottega Louie downtown. This place is incredible, as you can see…

It was packed with people and some of the most stunning sweet treats I’ve ever seen! I think even if you came here every day for a year, you still might not be able to try everything they have offer! From macarons to Mediterranean mussels and everything in between, this place has it all! It was soooo hard to choose a few things to try, but with our waiter’s help, we ordered great!

We started with the Burrata pizza and an awesome cheese covered soft pretzel. Then we moved on to sweets with the most amazing chocolate-filled beignet that was all warm and oozing with rich creamy chocolate along with a pistachio macaron, peanut butter terrine, and a cream-filled pastry that were all to die for. Everything was awesome and we can’t wait to go back someday!

Los Angeles Farmer’s Market

6333 W 3rd St, Los Angeles, CA 90036

Next we walked around the Farmer’s Market which is connected to an outdoor shopping center and tons of restaurants. We just enjoyed stretching our legs, people watching and snacking on some fresh fruit!

Carmela Ice Cream

7920 W. Third Street, Los Angeles, CA 90048

Across the street from the Farmer’s Market, we found the cutest little scoop shop! We tasted almost every flavor and they were all amazing! We settled on salted caramel, dark chocolate and fresh mint! It was served in a waffle bowl with the most adorable mini metal spoons! I about died from all the cuteness and deliciousness! Loved this place!

7290 Beverly Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90036

Next stop was MILK. What a cool place! Part bakeshop, part ice cream shop, part diner and full of deliciousness with a long line out the door! We got the red velvet macaroon ice cream sandwich and a peanut butter brownie and both were amazing! So worth the wait!

It was definitely a sweet day in L.A. and we hope to go back again soon and add more tasty places to this list!
