6 Best Desserts Spots in Mid-Wilshire

From Cronuts, Fonuts and NY’s Magnolia Bakery, Mid-Wilshire is home to some truly praise worthy dessert choices.  We’ve listed some of our absolute favorites below.

Magnolia Bakery

banana pudding cups

Address: 8389 W Third St, Los Angeles, CA 90048
Phone: (323) 951-0636

  • The famous Manhattan bakery’s LA location is a true gem.  Their banana pudding is what they are known for – it’s AMAZING!

Carmela Ice Cream



Address: 7920 W 3rd St, Los Angeles, CA 90048
Phone: (323) 944-0232
Yelp link: (4.5 stars with 600+ reviews)

  • The ice cream here is incredible – like truly tear inducing incredible – because the flavors are so natural.  For instance, their pistachio ice cream actually tastes like pistachio, not like pistachio flavored ice cream.  It’s hard to understand until you actually try it – something you should do immediately.
