Best bakery for little cookies

Looking for bakery that sells large assortment of little cookies -- the kind you can find all over the place in NYC, esp at the little Italian bakeries like Bruno's. Roulies in Marin County also has some pretty great ones. Haven't been able to find the equivalent here but don't really known where to look. Any recommendations?

      Thanks. Actually, doesn't have to be Italian -- as long as it has little cookies. Where are these places?

      1. re: bite bite

        Both in Culver City, Sorrento is on Sepulveda and Grand Casino (Argentinian) is on Main St.
        Images of little cookies are popping into my head, but cant' seem to name other places at the moment.

          I like Grand Casino as well... I'd bring all their variations on the alfajores, or just the simple alfajore... How could one go wrong with those?

    2. Susina specializes in small Italian cookies. There are too many to list. Here is a link to their photo page which has a couple of pictures of the types of cookies they have.

      Their big cookies are good too.

      Susina is on Beverly west of La Brea.

        Agree with the Susina recommendation - these also make charming host/hostess presents.

      2. Not Italian, but Bea's Bakery in Tarzana has a nice assortment of little cookies.

          I will second Bea's. They have a great variety that seem similar to the Susina assortment pictured above. I don't know how they compare in price. Susina's are $18 per pound.

          But I bet Susina does not have the best black-and-white cookie in LA like Bea's does.

          Viktor Benes also has a good cookie assortment, but I prefer Bea's.

          1. Mamolo's (Viktor Benes) at Gelson's and Vicente Foods has a great assortment of little butter cookies.
