Auntie Em's Kitchen
4616 Eagle Rock Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90041
Having a job in the entertainment industry, I am always looking for a great place to buy treats for the people I work with. I had heard many great things about Auntie Ems and was eager to bring their cupcakes and cookies into a studio meeting I had coming up. On the day of my meeting I went by Auntie Em's to pick up the goodies I had heard so much about. The line was nice and long and out the door. I waited patiently, noticing firemen and policemen having lunch outdoors. Once I entered the place I noticed there were a few flies inside. Flies fly around - there's a door - it happens. I was able to look past that only because I was in line and I was not sitting and swatting, like some people I noticed. As I got closer to the counter I got a better look of the open kitchen. My stomach turned a bit to see someone (who was slicing meat for a sandwich) scratch their face and then touch the food. At that point the food in the display case now looked inedible and I was no longer interested, so I left with nothing.

Fabiolus is my absolute favorite place to eat in LA. Parking on Sunset in sometimes a challenge. Vallet in the back is really rude. Past is wonderful and the desserts are wonderful. I could eat here everday and be happy. I have been known to schedule more than one lunch here a week. I cried when the location across from Paramount closed, but am happy that the Sunset location is not that far. Love the fact that they have carry out. Kiana, the owner, is always a delight - as so is my favorite waiter Gabriel. I highly recommend this place

Having a job in the entertainment industry, I use Sprinkles for a lot of my clients. My clients love the cupcakes. No one ever turns them down. Service, while not always the quickest due to the line, is always pleasant. Very easygoing with preorders and if you preorder, you can skip the line altogether.

On the day of a big meeting I had I went into Yummy Cupcakes, after having left Auntie Em's in Eagle Rock with nothing due to issues with ""cleanliness"". I had only heard about Yummy from my Post Office and they said it was better than Sprinkles in Beverly Hills. Sprinkles handles a lot of my business, so with me in a bind, I thought I would give them a try. It looked clean - how can you screw up a cupcake. Long story short, the cupcakes were horrible. I was so embarrassed to have brought those into the studio. The icing was disgusting. Cupcakes from the grocery store are better.
