Where to Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth in LA

Guest Blogger:

We’re one week away from Valentine’s Day and I’m sure you’ve already made your reservations for dinner, or you’re planning to cook something special. Each year cards, flowers, and sweets are on people’s minds. So, while I can’t help you pick out a card or recommend a florist, I can tell you about where to get something sweet for your Valentine this year! LA SWEET SPOTS


Milk Jar Cookies
5466 Wilshire Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90036

Milk Jar Cookies is one of my favorite places for cookies in Los Angeles, and they always put together great cookie gifts. For Valentine’s Day they’re offering a Chocolate covered Strawberry cookie. Be sure to order a dozen and send to your sweetheart! Available for local delivery or pick-up, you can call to reserve yours. LA SWEET SPOTS

Manhattan Beach Creamery
1120 Manhattan Avenue, Manhattan Beach, CA 90266
Manhattan Beach Creamery is popular for their Cream’wich ice cream sandwiches. They’re also great for chocolate covered strawberries and for Valentine’s Day they have three great cupcakes to choose from. Love Spell (chocolate cake, raspberry jam, white chocolate frosting), Lady in Red (red velvet with cream cheese frosting), and Beer & Pretzels (devil’s cake with Guinness, salted caramel, and vanilla frosting). LA SWEET SPOTS



Sweet Rose Creamery
826 Pico Boulevard,  Santa Monica; Brentwood Country Mart, 225 26th Street #51 Santa Monica; 7565 Beverly Boulevard,  Los Angeles
You’re probably familiar with Zoe Nathan of Huckleberry and Milo & Olive. She’s also behind Sweet Rose Creamery, a small batch ice cream shop with coffee and fresh baked goods. While my favorite thing to order here is an affogato (ice cream topped with a shot of espresso), they are also offering a special item this week: the Sweetheart Sundae, which features raspberry ice cream drizzled with hot fudge and topped with crispy almonds and raspberry meringue kisses. So much sweet-tart goodness! LA SWEET SPOTS
B Sweet Dessert Bar
2005 Sawtelle Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90025
B Sweet started out as a dessert truck and quickly gained popularity, opening up a brick and mortar location on Sawtelle in West LA. The thing to get here is their famous Hot Bread Pudding. They rotate 15 flavors throughout the week, but the Salted Caramel made with butterscotch cookies and the Red Velvet drizzled with cream cheese frosting are great choices. Currently they’re closed Mondays and Tuesdays. LA SWEET SPOTS
Susie Cakes
Multiple locations
It’s Tuesday morning, the 14th, and you just realized that you can’t make it to any of the locations above. The good news, there’s probably a Susie Cakes near you! With a focus on classic treats made daily by in-house bakers, using the freshest & finest ingredients, Susie Cakes is a great place to find cookies, cakes (the best old fashioned chocolate cake),  pies, and cupcakes. Their cupcake flavor of the month is chocolate salted caramel, complete with a heart on top.
Multiple Locations
With the ever-changing list of ice cream flavors, Salt & Straw has a special surprise treat for you and your Valentine. You’ll see decadent flavors like Compartés’ Spring Awakening, Twenty-Four Blackbirds’ Matcha Mint Chocolate Ganache, Bar au Chocolat’s Marzipan Chocolate Tango, ChocoVivo’s Mayan Tradition, and Ococoa’s Port & Caramel Truffle!
