Emil's is hands down the best bakery on the Westside. Their cakes are consistently fresh and delicious; it's the only place I go when I need something for a special occasion. They also have very nice every day items like croissants and brioches. Their prices are very low in comparison to those of their competitors and the girls that work there are always very friendly and helpful. I have been a customer of their for a long time and just visited their new location on Santa Monica Blvd., and it's soooo much nicer than their previous location in the Vons shopping center on Barry Ave. (yuck). I wish them great success in their new location and hope they get a lot more visibility.
Pros: Superior quality, reasonable prices
Cons: Parking not super easy on Santa Monica Blvd.
