Dolce Isola

bakeries/cafes/dessert places - blogger meetup

That’s my new blogging buddy Caroline!  She was my date while touring B&K Sugar Arts Lab; afterwards we sauntered down the street to Dolce Isola

…a.k.a. The Ivy Bakery.  I’ve eaten at The Ivy once, long before blogging, with Poom – she was in town visiting and wanted to spot a celebrity.  (We saw Hulk Hogan.)

This cafe is a lot more manageable; we went the day before Thanksgiving, so there were lots of pies on the counter…

…I was also intrigued by the gelato…

…but we wound up with flakey, buttery croissants.  There was a pumpkin cookie, too – didn’t snap a photo, but it was perfection.

Sprinkles Ice Cream

bakeries/cafes/dessert places - dessert

They say cupcakes are going out of fashion, but you wouldn’t know it from the line that still piles up outside Sprinkles in Beverly Hills.

Of course, this particular store also has ice cream…

…in addition to their frosted delights…

…and as predicted – they go perfect together!

The above is a mini red velvet with salted caramel – a winning combo concocted by my brilliant cousins Mark/Jen.  I opted for “plain old” peanut butter cup, which contains TCHO Chocolate, but am fantasizing about the day I return for a red velvet cone or cookie sandwich.

Go Greek

I’m such a sucker for FroYo.

Go Greek specializes in just that.  There’s one section with regular yogurt, and one that’s frozen/DIY.  Not your typical toppings!  Stuff is fresher, more “exotic.”  This is Beverly Hills, after all.

I tried chocolate, which isn’t tart.

They’ve got a cute bench in the window – but I prefer walking and froyo-ing.
