Baking Betty's two exuberant founders, Emily and Taryn, bake up batches of soft, chewy cookies from scratch everyday. The two best friends speckle cookies with sugary chunks of marshmallow and chocolate like field hands seeding Candyland’s farms. Available by the dozen or in bundled mini bunches, each batch of cookies bears sea-foam-green packaging and comes sealed with a kiss from the Baking Betty’s themselves.

With a name that's a riff on the French phrase for golden bread, Pandor Bakery and Cafe specializes in regional French pastries OC Weekly once said inspire "where-have-you-been-all-my-life epiphanies". Pandor is far from just a pastry shop, though, as it boasts an extensive menu that includes everything from breakfast plates to paninis. By morning, guests can be found digging into Nutella french toast or croque madames?and head in early for its Dornut pastry, which OC Weekly calls "obscenely good." At lunch, the kitchen sizzles with the sound of pressed sandwiches layered with pesto chicken or grilled zucchini. Though Pandor's flagship location can be found in the south of France, the California locations incorporate local goods such as coffee from Costa Mesa's Portola Coffee Lab and forks grown within Orange County.
Though coffee is good for jumpstarting a morning, it pales in comparison to the ritual surrounding afternoon tea. The Tea Room carries on this cherished English tradition, offering four levels of tea service, a selection of fair-trade organic teas, and a slew of finger foods for guests to enjoy. The simplest option is the Queen's Tea, during which you can nibble on treats while sipping selections from the house?s 50 signature blends. For a more decadent experience, the top-tier Royal Tea includes finger sandwiches, plates of salad, rows of glistening pastries, fruit, chocolate, and champagne. Outside the tearoom, guests can browse British paraphernalia at the gift shop or take home their favorite variety of tea without having to reverse-engineer flavors from stains left on lapels.
The Dessert Lab's pastry chefs stay true to their bakery's name, aiming to redefine the art and science of sweets. Their innovative efforts are directed toward cheesecake, which they elevate to a level of blissful originality with flavor iterations that include saffron, rose, and french toast with bacon. Their specialty flavors change weekly, much like the government's stance on the food pyramid. They experiment with size, too, crafting bite-size and 3-inch cheesecakes to give visitors the freedom to try more than one or two flavors.
