Great Night Desserts around Stanton, Buena Park, Anaheim, Westminster?

  • 3

I'm going to be eating dinner with some friends in Stanton tonight and want to know if there is any great dessert spot in the area. A casual place is preferred.

  1. Too late now, obviously, but I can think of four things.

    In ascending order of formality:

    1. Joe's Italian Ice, Harbor Blvd. south of Chapman Ave., Garden Grove: I am in love with the Joelatti, which is Italian ice and soft-serve together in one cup. It's a shack; there are maybe four bar stools on the north side of the shack.

    2. Golden Spoon, Katella Ave. (Costco plaza), Cypress (among other locations): peanut butter frozen yogurt, that's all I have to say about that.

    3. Thai Nakorn, Beach Blvd. and Chapman Ave., Stanton: besides the very good mango and sticky rice, they have all kinds of Thai desserts, including the required pandan-coconut combination.

    4. The Catch, State College Blvd. and Gene Autry Way, Anaheim: this is the sister restaurant of Taps in Brea, and they have both bananas Foster and this incredibly decadent "volcano" cake that is just out of this world.

    1. I just drove past Park Ave. on Beach Blvd. in Stanton/Buena Park, and iirc, it might be a nice place to sit down for coffee and dessert.

      1. Thanks everyone, my dinner got moved back so I'll look into all your recs. I'm a huge frozen dessert fan so the Joelatti sounds interesting.
