Dessert to go in downtown LA
I've been asked to bring dessert to a friend's house for a small dinner party. I'm going to be in downtown LA beforehand, so I was wondering if anyone knew of any place in downtown I could get some great desserts. It will be for 5-6 people. I'm up for anything.
Frances Bakery in Little Tokyo (Honda Plaza) has some delicious delicate cakes.
The are not overly sweet and generally subtle in flavor and texture.
The fruit tarts are good and i seem to remember a green tea cake that was quite good.
Their chocolate truffles are also excellent.
Or I would highly recommend a box of handmade chocolates from L'Artisan d' Chocolate on first street.

The pave noir is fantastic and super smooth.
I also like the ones infused w/lavendar and earl grey tea.
The owners Christian and Whajung are charming and wonderful.
Mochi from Mikawaya Market.
Sweets from chinese bakeries in Chinatown.
Or, ask Phillipe's to sell you an entire apple pie.
