Los Angeles: The Milk Shop

The Milk Shop is an immensely popular bakery and ice cream parlour in downtown Los Angeles. I found the iconic desserts rather pedestrian, but here are some Samsung Galaxy S3 captures.
 


The iconic MILK sign.
 
 
The extensive menu features sundaes, ice cream sandwiches, shakes and floats, cakes, cookies, and other confections.
 
 
Blue velvet cake, blueberry chiffon cake with blueberry bits and white chocolate frosting. This is not a blue-colored red velvet cake which is buttermilk cake with cocoa and buttercream frosting.
 
 
Ooey gooey double chocolate cookies, an insanely heavy chocolate fudge cookie.
 
 
Cupcake in a cone. The general consensus is that these are awfully dry.
 


Red velvet cupcake, rich buttermilk cake with cocoa and sweet buttercream frosting. Only this was delectable.



Tres leches cake, a light and porous spongecake topped with vanilla cream, sitting in a vanilla bean milk bath. This was light and refreshing and rather unsugary.



Red velvet poppers, miniature red velvet cupcakes.

Overall, I found the desserts quite boring. I heard their ice cream sandwiches are enticing though.

Whoa, that's a very blue cake. Thanks for the review though. I'll be in LA next week for the Lucky FABB conference and am trying to figure out where to eat in my spare time. :)
