Truly enjoyed the deserts and breakfast sandwich purchased. Staff were very nice and I look forward to going again and trying other items. A newfound place for me. Thank you!

Don't hide yourselves, be a little more creative and bold with your signage. Hard to spot entrance.

Great place to pick up sweets, but also for a morning treat. Parking is the one challenge.

Egg salad sandwich we shared was excellent. The young man at the counter was personable and informative. Enjoyed the sweets too!

The place is super cute and the staff very friendly...I ended up buying 3 extra bags of cookies just to try since they had interesting flavors like lavender shortbread. Everything was delicious and I can't wait to have some sort of soiree to go back!

I would definitely recommend this bakery. I got to the store right before closing and was able to get a little variety (before the other customers before me got most of the sweets) and all was yummy. I got lucky that the blueberry-corn bread was brought out freshly baked and got a slice of that.....will need to go back for more! I also want to try out the morning pastries.

Their bake goods are very good. The lemon bar, the cookies, everything was really good. Definitely will go back again.

From Our Editors

As a successful financial consultant, Sharlena Fong spent her days wearing buttoned-up business attire and roaming New York City's World Financial Center. Then came September 11, 2001. Her professional life shaken and her priorities reorganized, she said goodbye to the world of finance, trading her power suits for a chef’s toque. After finishing culinary school and working under experienced chefs at Eleven Madison Park and Bouchon Bakery in New York City, Fong teamed up with James Gonzalez and Dennis Hunter in 2007 to open Semi Sweet Bakery in Los Angeles. Today, they all continue to work together with the same goal in mind: morphing frowns into grins with the help of fresh-baked pastries, cookies, and cakes. Hunter explains it best on the shop’s website: "No matter how bad someone's day is, no matter how much heartache someone may be going through, I get to give them a slice of cake or a piece of pastry made with love, and they smile!"

Love is not the only ingredient in their baked goods, however. Inspired by his training under Chef Monica May at Nickel Diner, Chef Gonzalez believes in using local, sustainable ingredients, making everything in-house and from scratch all while balancing each morsel’s delicate flavor profile. In the kitchen each day, chefs bake their signature ding a lings in sweet flavors such as hazelnut crunch and red velvet alongside savory empanadas stuffed with mushroom and short rib. Samoa macaroons packed with coconut, chocolate, and caramel sidle up to mugs of drip coffee and loose-leaf tea from SerendipiTe. The shop also trades in larger treats: nine-inch cakes in flavors such as strawberry three ways with jam and lemon curd fly out the door for surprise birthday parties or surprise I-ate-your-birthday-cake-in-the-car parties.
