I love finding new places to stop for a cup of coffee and an afternoon snack. Here are two of my most recent discoveries.
Blackmarket Bakery at The Camp 2937 Bristol St. Costa Mesa, CA 92626
They make a variety of grilled cheese sandwiches. My favorite is the one with mushrooms and onions on seeded sour dough bread. Yummy! And my go-to bakery treat is their flourless chocolate cookie. I don’t know how they do it. These cookies are amazing. I keep them in my freezer at all times in case of a chocolate emergency. Fifteen seconds in the microwave and presto…emergency handled. They also make amazing blueberry muffins and out-of-this-world scones.
Sweetsalt Food Shop 10218 Riverside Dr Los Angeles, CA 91602
I recently discovered this cute place in Toluca Lake…just east of Studio City. Their flower flavored macaroons are delicious, not overpowering like others I have had. There is just a hint of rose or lavender in the sweet, airy gems that melt in your mouth. Enjoy!
