I was lucky enough to happen upon this bakery when cruising a revamped area of West Hollywood. With reasonable prices and beautiful baked goods in a variety of sizes and flavors, there is something for every craving. Of course, I wouldn't be writing about them if they didn't have a selection of cookies!
I sampled a chocolate chip cookie ($1.50) and a chocolate chip coconut macaroon ($0.75). This was the perfect combination for an afternoon snack. The chocolate chip cookie was buttery, thin, and slightly crispy while the macaroon was chewy and sweet. Neither had much of a chocolate flavor even though both appeared to have a fair number of chocolate chips. To satisfy a chocolate craving, go for the chocolate espresso cookie. I definitely will be going back for more cookies and also to try some of their brownies and cupcakes.
