Artelice Patisserie: A Pictorial Essay


#1

Low-key recent opening for this new Sawtelle Japantown confectioner, located adjacent to Balconi Coffee Company in the Olympic Collection. Gorgeous, delicate-looking, and delicious cakes. The store display of the goods, in a “whitebox” case, is Instagram-worthy. Their tiramisu was outstanding.

RECOMMENDED.

REALLY NICE PIX! They only rate a “Recommended” by you? OK, what gives?


#3

Taking the review thing seriously: I gotta go back for (ahem) “more data” before declaring the upgrade…

Extrapolating from existing data, however, Artelice seems to be headed for an imminent “HIGHLY RECOMMENDED” label very soon. :slight_smile:


#4

Great little spot for their lattes (almond essence or matcha) or siphon coffee. Nice people, too.

Gorgeous pics, JL.


#5

Wowowow! those are some beautiful pics, i hope they’re as delicious! those things really are pretty!


#6

I was wondering if the silence regarding the other pastries (which look AMAZING) was similar to silence about the Sawtelle okonomiyaki place… :wink:


#7

That “more data” part is hard work. Or as my son used to say in his less verbally descriptive years, “really really very very lotsa lotsa” hard work. Tenacious J_L.


#8

Is tiramisu picture ?


#9

It’s the speckled white one with the flower on top. I gotta take a cross-section photo, I suppose. In any case, it was tasty.


#10

Ok, those are gorgeous. And, given my insatiable sweet tooth, I’ll (hopefully) be trying for myself this weekend.

Thank you for sharing


#11

which ones did you try?


#12

interesting now i see it.
Thank you JL>


#13

Oh my god, these look heavenly!


#14

I’ve always wondered why people feel a need to make desserts look pretty.

Cuz if there’s any viand that I would have no hesitation eating if it looked ugly, it would be a dessert item.

Wonderful pics as always, by the way.


#15

Because in nature, sweet things are pretty. Fruits, syrups, golden honey.

Meat is ugly and so are starches and many vegetables.


#16

viand - 14th century Anglo-French term meaning, “article of food.”

As I always suspected - ipse is an Outlander.


#17

what’s an Outlander


#18

I’m not a huge sweet eater but those are just so darn gorgeous. Please, yes, give us some cross sections in the (hopefully near) future.


#19

Daughter was yearning for Volcano Boba. “Okay - anything for my sweetheart! Oh heck - speaking of sweets…”

Beautifully made, wonderful flavor combinations, all gone. This doesn’t happen often with desserts in our home. These desserts are a testament to the notion that we eat with our eyes first - and consummated with our taste buds.

What flavor is that yellow one?
