Question: Where is a good stop for an original summer (or anytime) sweet?
Hypothesis: A cornerstone of Beverly Boulevard, Milk has long been serving up buckets of freshly-made ice cream, their famous ooey gooey cookies and blue velvet cake the color of Cookie Monster to Angelenos for half a decade. Whether it’s in their chewy cookie sandwiches or cupcakes shaped like ice cream cones, this is an institution that perhaps goes through a boatload of sugar a day. So should you put aside your visions of wicked sugar plum fairies just to enjoy a scoop on a sunny afternoon?
Findings: Get in line and relax. Practically a rite of passage to claim Angelenohood, you’d be silly not to spend at least one Sunday with blood orange sorbet dripping down your chin. With goods all made in house, the grocery store dessert freezer section will become a lot less appealing once you’ve tried (or retried) any treat from this place. Plus, it’s located on one of the most walkable streets in Los Angeles so you can easily burn a few calories post fill-up by exploring the neighborhood. Worth it, indeed.
