Since 2008 Cake Monkey has been an underground bakery of sorts, running their business from a private kitchen, selling their cakewiches and Yo-hos at select venues including Umami Burger, Silverlake Wine, and The Sweets Truck. But the sought after company has surfaced with a permanent Pop-Up store (at least on the weekends), debuting today with a bake sale. Along with their signature cakewiches ($3.50), pop pies ($3.50), and banana/milk chocolate/toffee crunch cake ($7), the bakery is selling ice cream sandwiches with malted milk chocolate ice cream between flourless chocolate pecan cookies and oatmeal cookies with spiced coffee ice cream, for $4.

While getting your sugar fix, you can check out local artists, photographers, and jewelry designers showcasing their work. Now, instead of ordering nine mini-cakes for yourself--minimum amount that can be purchased directly through Cake Monkey--you can find a cheaper and more waist-friendly alternative at their new Silver Lake location.

Cake Monkey: 2912 Rowena Avenue, Silver Lake; (877) 640-2253. Fri., noon-6 p.m.; Sat., 10 a.m.-7 p.m.; Sun., 10 a.m.-6 p.m.

  • Malibu Pier Restaurant and Bar
    Malibu Pier Restaurant and Bar, with chef Jason Fullilove at the helm, is in the two buildings at the pier’s entrance that used to be Beachcomber Cafe and Ruby’s Diner.

  • The Tasting Menu Trend
    In Los Angeles especially, but increasingly across the country, restaurants are either switching to tasting menus, putting a greater focus on a tasting-menu option (while offering à la carte items as well), or opening as tasting-menu operations from day one. The format that used to be the calling card of only the fanciest of restaurants is becoming ubiquitous, even at places where the waiter calls you “dude” and there isn’t a white tablecloth in sight.
  • Milo's Kitchen: A Treat Truck for Dogs
    Milo's Kitchen, a part of California-based Big Heart Pet Brands, is taking its homestyle dog treats on the road this summer with the "Treat Truck." The dogified food truck is making stops all over the country, ending up in New York early September. The truck stopped at Redondo Beach Dog Park Friday morning entertaining the pups with treats, a photo-booth and play zone. Milo's Kitchen Treat Truck offered samples of the line's six flavors, all with chicken or beef as the first ingredient, and all made in the U.S.A. with no artificial colors or preservatives.
