Beverly Hills Chocolate & Sweet Shops
Beverly Hills is a mecca of delectable sweets and treats. Lines wrap around the block for Sprinkles' cupcakes and ice cream, a variety of macarons beckon from the counter at 'Lette Macarons and samples are plentiful inside Sugarfina. Read on to choose the treat made just for you or work your way down the list and taste them all!
A must see for “I Love Lucy” fans and chocolate lovers alike, Edelweiss Chocolates' notoriety began with the famous episode where Lucy and Ethel are left to commandeer a conveyor belt at a chocolate factory that spirals out of control. Still to this day, that conveyor belt runs in the back of the shop churning out chocolate covered nuts and chews, pretzels, dried and fresh fruits and even sugar-free morsels.
With treats as beautiful as they are delicious, ‘Lette brings a fresh take on the traditional Parisian macaron. The vivid hues of their unique macarons reflect the natural flavors and essences that infuse the ganache filling of these delicious cookies. Choose from a variety of flavors like Earl Grey tea, passion fruit sweet wedding almond, Caribbean chocolate and salted caramel.
Sprinkles Cupcakes & Sprinkles Ice Cream
The cupcake craze started right here in Beverly Hills with the first ever Sprinkles location. We’re also home to the world’s first Cupcake ATM which dispenses freshly baked cupcakes 24 hours a day. The Red Velvet cupcake is the top seller and seasonal flavors like Key Lime in summer and Caramel Apple around Halloween are big hits as well. Rounding out Sprinkles’ empire is Sprinkles Ice Cream, located next door, which serves rich, slow-churned ice cream, sundaes, floats and the pièce de résistance: the Sprinkles Sandwich, a scoop of ice cream between two cupcake tops!
Chaumont Bakery & Café
Two former Parisians set up shop in Beverly Hills, bringing authentic baking standards and premier French treats to town. In France, a bakery (boulangerie) cannot legally be called a bakery if the baker is freezing or otherwise storing raw or par-cooked dough before baking it. This regulation does not exist in LA, but Chaumont is sticking with their homeland's tradition and only baking freshly proofed dough each morning at 3 a.m. Their hard work has paid off with celebrity chef Ludo Lefebvre calling Chaumont’s croissants the best he has had in all of the country! The offerings at Chaumont are as much a treat to the palette as they are to the eyes with colorful, handcrafted pastries lining their display case.
Sugarfina, a candy shop for adults, was started in a slightly whimsical way when founders, and now fiancés, Rosie and Josh, went to see Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory on their third date. The candies are personally curated from all over the world, and include Champagne gummy bears and Peach Bellini bites. Gift boxes like the Love Bites box (featuring “Men are Pigs” and “Stop Kissing Frogs” chews) and the Cocktail Hour Tasting Box (with Pale Ale Pints, Martini Olive Almonds and Maple Bourbon Caramels) make for perfect hostess gifts or souvenirs to take back home.
