Go local with treats from these five food vendors
Bottega Louie Macarons

Bottega Louie Macarons
Bottega Louie is a restaurant, market, patisserie and cafĂ©, but most importantly, it’s a macaron-lover’s paradise. Prepared daily, Bottega Louie’s macarons are made with California almond flour, fresh fruit compotes, buttercream and ganache. The bakery’s 15-piece assorted box is also available online with flavors like bananas foster, earl grey and coconut.

Coolhaus first gained popularity for its ice cream and ice cream sandwiches in the heat of the Coachella Valley Music Festival in 2009. Now, the company operates out of ten mobile ice cream trucks and two storefront locations in L.A. and serves up flavors like baked apple, brown butter candied bacon, coffee Oreo, fried chicken and waffles and more. Go online to order both pint packs and “sammie ” packs and find these sweet treats waiting for you on your doorstep the next day.

Milk Jar Cookies
Swap out your store-bought cookies for something a little homier from Milk Jar Cookies. The company keeps it simple: homemade cookies paired with locally sourced milk. If you’re looking to stay in bed, order a custom box online or start a monthly subscription and let them do the work for you. Milk Jar offers the classic flavors in addition to gourmet options like banana split and rocky road. Is bikini season over yet?

Red Bread
Though avocado toast is L.A.’s jam, Red Bread’s jam takes toast to new tasty heights. Made with local organic ingredients, the jam and offers an array of flavors throughout the year, including rhubarb, spicy tomato, strawberry, oro blanco and blueberry, all of which are currently available.

Started by 14-year friends who bonded over their peanut butter sandwiches in sixth grade, SpreadPB can be found at food stores across L.A. boasting peanut butter flavors that are both decadent and classic. Grab the creamy or nutty to replace your standard spread, or venture out of your comfort zone for the Coconut PB or Cinnamon Raisin PB.
