I recently went to Los Angeles for 4 days and had some delicious food and drinks! I did quite a bit of research on finding unique and top rated places, so hopefully this can be a handy guide for fellow bloggers and tourists! Today’s post focuses on must try desserts in Los Angeles! I’m hoping to do another one on restaurants/bars too.
I’m currently having a bit of an ice cream obsession and I’m pretty sure Salt & Straw is to blame. I actually went to Salt & Straw twice while we were in LA. They have a huge choice of flavors including their classics (salted caramel is the bomb!) and also seasonal flavors (june is about recycled foods) You need to visit at least one of the locations when you are in LA! These are the best ice creams I’ve ever had! 5/5
This tea bar was a hidden gem that I actually just came across while shopping in the area. I was pretty tired and thirsty and at the back of Miansai store (they sell bracelets/watches/jewelry!) there was a cute patio area with a bar that sells tea and kombucha. The tables all had marble tops with a succulent on top. There were also plants behind the couches which made the place very instaworthy! The drinks were actually pretty good and it’s a great spot to relax while shopping in the area. I wouldn’t say you should go out of your way to visit this, but you might be strolling around Abbot Kinney and this is a great quiet spot to have some yummy drinks. 5/5
There are a ton of cute coffee shops around Los Angeles, and I chose to visit Go Get Em Tiger as it was on the way to Griffith Observatory. It opens at 6am so it’s perfect for getting a snack in before beating the crowds at Griffith. They have a really good breakfast menu as well including this Soft Scrambled Eggs on Biscuit + Avocado. The food and drinks were tasty but nothing out of this world. What I did really enjoy was the outdoor seating area. It was super big with lots of tables, chairs, and trees to add to the atmosphere! 4/5
Which of these dessert places would you most want to go to? If you’re a foodie, take a look at what I ate in Tokyo!
