Creme brulee

  • s

My daughter and I are on the hunt for great creme brulee. Love the stuff (apply directly to thighs). Any suggestions where to find the best?

  1. Try Cafe Stella in Silverlake. Nice and creamy, with a great crust and vanilla seeds on the bottom.

    1. Catal in Downtown Disney does a wonderful trio. Flavors change all the time, but I have sampled rosewater, mango, rootbeer, pistachio, cherry etc.

      Very creamy and delicious.

      1. Bistro 45 in Pasadena can do a good one. Pentimento at LACMA does, I think, a 4 mini platter. In fact, probably any Splichal place will do a creme brulee.

        1. The best I've had was at the Pavilion restaurant in the Four Seasons Newport Beach. The glazed, candied shell is to die for.

          1. Cafe Camellia in Bellflower on Bellflower Ave. Call first because they run-out all the time.
