Random Review: The City Bakery LA

February 17th, 2006

I’m in LA for the long weekend, and I finally made it over to The City Bakery in Brentwood.  Since I’m here, and I have my laptop and cellular Internet, I thought that I would share:

The City Bakery LA verdict?  Good, but incomplete.

The Good:

  • Actual food foods (as in not dessert): nice selection, including salmon, their classic Mac & Cheese, and even a fruit bar (scary to me).
  • The Classic City Bakery Hot Chocolate.  Rich, viscous, and oh-so-good. 
  • Decor: Nice, airy, clean atmosphere…and they have laminated cork tables.   I heart cork.
  • The Melted Chocolate Chip cookies.  Pricey at $3, but excellent.

Needs Improvement:

  • No Cold Hot Chocolate on the menu.  But then again, it’s not rocket science to make.  Ask for a cup of ice with your Hot Chocolate, and mix.  Tastes the same.
  • No Chocolate Tarts: They’re my favorite…and it looks like I’ll have to trek over to NY to get these, at least for now.
