PARIS PASTRY on Westwood Blvd..anything good?
My experiences have been similar - never tried the Grand Marnier cake (sounds great) but I used to go occasionally back in the 80s when they were one of few "great" bakeries in the Westside. Never had a bad baked good there...
I agree with the other posters about Amandine - they serve amazing pastries. And to the east is Clementine which has a reputation of having great everything. I've only been there a few times, but all in all, I have been very satisfied with their food.
I would give Paris a try if you drive by that often. My guess would be that they still are very good. It's just that the number of extremely good alternatives are much higher now.

I used to always get my birthday cakes here. My two favorites were the chocolate cake with chocolate whipped cream frosting and chocolate shavings (I'm sure this has a name - but I don't know what it is). The cake was just like milk chocolate - rich and creamy. delicious. My other favorite was traditional white cake with strawberries and whipped cream frosting. Really fantastic! I haven't had any of the other itmes - but the cakes are really good and reasonably priced.
