Best Strawberry cake in Santa Monica

honkman May 31, 2007 11:44 PM

In two weeks will be in LA for two (hopefully) nice meals at Mozza and Spago but for a birthday surprise on Sunday I need a nice cafe in Santa Monica where you can eat the best fresh strawberry cake and have a nice coffee. Any suggestions ?

    I looked in some older post and found some possible places:

    The Rose
    Caprice Pastries
    Massimo’s Bakery
    Victor Bene’s
    3 square café
    Orchid Bakery

    Any suggestions where do I have the best chances to get a good strawberry cake and a nice coffee.

      Angel Maid Bakery in Culver City/Venice makes a great one, but alas not a cafe where you can sit and eat, but if you can take it somewhere and enjoy with a friend........

        Victor Bene's bakery items are found in Gelson's grocery stores, so it's not really a cafe kind of place.

          I noticed that on Susiecakes website - www.susiecakesla.com - they have a strawberry confetti cake, not sure what this is exactly, you may want to ask them. They are located in Brentwood.
