On my way to pick up a wee pair of Vans for the newborn son of a skater friend, I ran across Massimo’s Delectables in Culver City. Though not as wee as the aforementioned shoes, it is a very small bakery tucked behind the Vans store at 13222 W. Washington Blvd.
Massimo is from Milan by way of Vancouver, and not only does he bake lots of yummy cookies and cakes, he also makes his own gelato. Aw yeah. Do your sweet tooth a favor and visit either the Washington Blvd. bakery or his cafe at 1029 Abbot Kinney Blvd.
The man gave me a free cookie, which makes him my new hero.
Here’s a (rather old) Los Angeles Magazine review of Massimo’s.
