Best dessert in Long Beach??

shelovestoeat May 22, 2007 10:28 AM

Being a sugar addict myself, I thought I'd ask my fellow Chowhounders where they like to get the best dessert in Long Beach. From there, I will proceed to make my way around town and sample your suggestions (I feel it will be my duty). Be sure to name the place AND dessert!

    Oh, I forgot to mention the Romeo et Juliet crepe from Le Creperie on 2nd st. My favorite with Nutella, strawberries, bannanas, and whipped cream!

      I you haven't tried Creative Cakery on PCH and 2nd St next to Trader Joes then your missing out. When we have a birthday in our family thats where we go. They also sell individual size too. Try the Choc w/ cream frosting.

        Benley's buttermilk panna cotta with key lime anglaise.

        Adding to the pie suggestions, Polly's for fresh Ollallieberry pie (very seasonal) as well as any other seasonal fresh fruit pies.

        Hof's Hot also for fresh peach pie (individual) in a shortbread type crust.

          The Bake & Broil, SW cnr 37th & Atlantic - the one I used to get was a chocolate / walnut pie, heated - w/ vanilla ice cream

            Bake & Broil's pies and pastries are all great. Love the red velvet cupcakes.

            But when it's around Thanksgiving and Christmas, the Holiday Lush pie is the best. Their Summer Lush pie is also very good.

              oh, now youre talking! Bake N' Broil is amazing. My all time favorite is Lemon Lush Pie, Red Velvet cake with the cream cheese frosting, and the Coconut Pinapple cake is equally amazing.
