1 Bouchon Bakery

The beauty of the desserts at Thomas Keller's Bouchon Bakery is that they taste as delightful as they look.French pastries, brioche and croissants are all melt-in-your-mouth amazing here, but the pastry case highlight has to be the macrons. The flavors change with the seasons, but whether you're sampling the standard chocolate and vanilla or seasonal pumpkin, you're going to be one happy customer.

Those who appreciate a truly delectable dessert should look no further than chef Na Young's pastry case at Glendale's Proof Bakery. The exterior of the shop doesn't even begin to hint at the award-worthy delicacies inside, such as the Chocolate Caramel tart with crème fraiche caramel, chocolate ganache and Maldon salt or the Almond Frangipane Cake filled with mascarpone cream and jam.
