Who has the best dessert menu in Downtown LA?

  • b

Water Grill? Patina? Checkers? Others? Is there any place that is especially good for this?

  1. I like the desserts at Ciudad (445 S. Figueroa St., (213) 486-5171). Their tres leches cake, in particular, is really really good.

    1. i second david's recommendation. ciudad has really over the top, tasty desserts. i recall a fine key lime pie, good cookies etc.

      1. While Ciudad certainly does have some terrific selections (including the flan and the aforementioned torta de tres leches), I think WATER GRILL has the best overall depth and selection for dessert lovers.

              I believe the poster is referencing the donuts served at Grace, which is clearly nowhere near downtown.
              But they are heavenly-gourmet-little-fried-doughy-treats. Yes indeed.
