I have a confession. If I could skip meals and head straight to dessert without risking the increase in my waistline, I would do it in a heartbeat. Though dessert is best enjoyed on special occasions, it is tough to hold back when Los Angeles has so many sweet and tasty options to choose from. Whether you like cold treats or baked goods, Los Angeles is lucky to have some of the best dessert spots in the state. If you are hoping to indulge that sweet tooth, then you must check out the three best dessert spots in Los Angeles.
With multiple locations serving the Los Angeles area, only a monster would not be able to find an awesome sweet treat at Milk. They offer every type of shake or float you could ask for They hand craft them to order using the only best locally sourced ingredients. But what makes Milk famous? The fact that they make some of the best ice cream sandwiches in Los Angeles. What makes their sandwiches special is that their ice cream is top notch and amazing quality. If you have a special celebration coming up, then check out some of their specialty desserts. Not in the LA area? That is no problem at all. They ship their baked goods all over the country. Treat yourself to a small cookie basket. It is perfectly acceptable if you do not want to share.
What I recommend: ice cream sandwich
Location: 7290 Beverly Blvd Los Angeles, CA 90036
A sweet, fresh-baked pie is one of life’s best pleasures. The folks at Pie Hole are making that simple pleasure even better with their sweet and savory pie offerings. They have everything from a giant stuffed blueberry cheesecake to mini pie holes that are perfect for sharing. What makes their pie holes interesting is that it kind of reminds me of donut holes except in pie version. They are also making sure that those outside of the Los Angeles area can get in on the decadence with their nationwide shipping options. For the non-Angelinos, check out their website to order a cookie sampler or pie kit for yourself.
What I recommend: pie holes of every flavor
Location: 714 Traction Ave Los Angeles, CA 90013
When it comes to baked goods, it is hard to top a donut. These sweet fried circles of deliciousness are perfect any time of day. The folks at SK Donuts have been serving some of the best donuts around since 1989. Located on 3rd street, they offer up all the classic donuts like maple and cinnamon crumb cake. As good as those are, you will want to go with one of their specialty donuts. My personal favorite is the Nutella walnut donut. They even have vegan offerings. And though you really need to give their donuts a try, it is worth a mention that they offer a few sandwich options for both breakfast and lunch. If you still have room, order their blended vanilla latte. It is the perfect way to cool off while getting a sweet caffeine kick.
What I recommend: Nutella walnut donut or any of their specialty donuts
Location: 5850 W 3rd St Los Angeles, CA 90036
Though it is quite tough not to indulge in dessert each and every day, the above restaurants certainly make it very tempting to do so. There's so many more dessert spots I can talk about but these will have to do for now. Since daily dessert is not recommended, you will want to make sure that when you are hitting those sweets, you are making it count by choosing the best of the best in the Los Angeles area.
