West LA Specialty
The Bigg Chill
10850 W. Olympic Blvd., West LA
COVID-19 Update: Open for pickup and delivery. With the original '80s logo intact more than 20 years later (there are even old-school pleather chairs and a matching neon sign), walking into The Bigg Chill sort of feels like a time warp. The frozen yogurt stacks up, too, with a wide assortment of flavors and endless toppings. The location is admittedly random, but as anyone who grew up here will gladly tell you, this is the kind of place that's worthy of a drive. COVID-19 Disclaimer: We are working hard to keep our listings as up to date as possible (deliveries, outdoor dining, etc.), but given the evolving nature of local COVID-19 restrictions, we recommend double-checking the information in this guide with any business you plan on visiting. Also, please note that we have not vetted any businesses listed within our guides for their compliance with applicable safety regulations.
Top Tier Treats
11511 W. Pico Blvd., West LA
Formerly known as Jamaica Cakes, this unassuming little bakery on Pico cranks out some of the most jaw-droppingly elaborate, Food Network-worthy cakes we've ever seen. While not quite as festive as the multi-tiered creations, the cookies, pies, and cupcakes are just as delicious.
Honeymee Ice Cream
11301 W. Olympic Blvd., West LA
While there’s no dearth of ice cream shops in LA, somehow quality soft-serve is still difficult to get a hold of. Honey Mee not only fills the hole in the market but it does so in a way that’s just a little bit healthier.
