    There are a few places around town, but my pick is The Cobbler Lady:


    This post comes with pics!

    Another place that is often mentioned on these boards is The Cobbler Factory; it, too, is quite good! There have been many posts over the past couple of years. If you simply type in "cobbler" in the search bar above, you will find many reviews of the various Los Angeles cobbler places.

      We found The Cobbler Factory too heavy handed with the cinnamon.

      Don't know if you're looking for take-away or dine-in, but for dessert in a restaurant, the blackberry cobbler at Cynthia's on 3rd is pretty spectacular.

        although technically it's crumble, not cobbler . . .

        Love the Cobbler Lady, but the OP should note whether he/she is seeking cobbler with a pastry or biscuit topping (Cobbler Lady is the former). I was raised with pastry cobbler so am always horrified when I order cobbler, assuming it'll be that, and get some monstrosity that's more like a failed shortcake.

            I personally like the gourmet cobbler factory:

            my fave is the cherry one, but blueberry is gouda too

                The Cobbler Factory in Pasadena is spectacular. My favorite is the mixed berry. Don't let the shabby storefront scare you away.

                    You don't even necessairly have to drive to Pasadena to buy from The Gourmet Cobbler Factory. I've seen them at several farmers market in Orange County like Irvine on Saturdays, the Tustin one, etc.. and I'm sure you can find it in the LA farmers markets as well.

                    But, if you couldn't find their cobblers nearby at a farmers market, I'm not so sure it would be worth it for most people to drive to Pasadena for their cobblers. I'm not a big fan of their crust, or lack thereof. There's no bottom crust, and the top crust is too thin.
