      or you can pick up a Tart Tartin from Dolce Isola which is the bakery/cafe owned by the Ivy-on Robertson near Hamilton High School. SOOO good. The best APPLE dessert ever!!!

          I can't remember the cost but it is huge and a bit less pricey than buying the same exact dessert from the Ivy.

        The tarte tatin at Le Petit Four in Sunset Plaza is excellent.

          Also, Sweet Lady Jane makes a mean Tart Tatin. (Btw, guys, I could be wrong, but I don't think there's an "r" in Tatin; if I recall correctly, it's the family name of the ovenless sisters who supposedly invented the dish.)

          Another option would be a straight-up American apple pie. The Filling Station in Orange makes a pretty damn good version, and it's huge. Maybe to far out of your way though. Maybe the Apple Pan?

            Too late and probably the wrong kind of thing, but one of my favorite apple desserts is the apple-cinnamon ice cream at the Pacific Dining Car.
