Go Greek

bakeries/cafes/dessert places

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.

Salt and Straw opened their first official Los Angeles shop WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE OF ME.

At 10am this morning, I was supposed to meet Tara for coffee on La Brea.  Our meeting location quickly changed once I found out today was the shop’s grand opening.

Happy to see they sell Valerie Confections, as well as my Instagram buddy Jonathan’s gourmet goodies!

I had a bit of his Love Nuts Chocolate in a Stumptown Coffee flavor…

Cafe Dulce

Hey guys!  Thanks for your sweet comments (that weirdly, nobody can see) on my last post.  There’s a bit of cleanup still to be done (if anyone knows a web designer/wordpress expert that they adore let me know).

I’ve been in Ojai the last few days, taking time off, but before I left town I had a little reunion with my TLC Ladies in Little Tokyo…

…we met up for coffee and sweets at Cafe Dulce.

I was already familiar with their fruity pebbles/bacon donuts from this year’s Plate by Plate – they had all sorts of interesting flavors, including a green tea one.
