Ice cream is a daily ritual for us. Whether it’s visiting our neighborhood shop (Carmel Ice Cream) for a classic scoop of strawberry or whipping up a delectable yet interesting batch at home, we love this frozen treat.  We agree that ice cream is a sweet dessert meant to be enjoyed year-round, not just summertime.  We’ve rounded up our favorites in Los Angeles to help you get through the fall and beyond.

Coffee is a ritual for us.  From grinding fresh beans every morning and brewing a fresh cup in our french press, we have the art of coffee making and drinking down to a science. As much as we enjoy the comfort of sipping on coffee at home, the luxury and decadence of sipping coffee at the neighborhood coffee bar is unparalleled.

Handsome Coffee Roasters, dubbed one of the best coffee roasters and coffee bars in LA, will soon be acquired by another top notch coffee bar, Blue Bottle Coffee, in the coming months.  This likely means the end for Handsome Coffee Roasters, but there’s still time to enjoy a locally brewed cup of jo before the takeover is complete.
