There are myriad cakes and pies to choose from at Alcove bakery in Los Feliz. Our favorites are the devil's food cake made with dark chocolate, whipped cream and fudge frosting. There's also the wonderful apple pie made with thin slices of slightly tart, still somewhat crisp Granny Smiths, a crumble topping and a glaze of frosting. Alcove has a full bar as well, so if you're there later in the day or for brunch, consider asking the bartender to pair this with a bourbon-based drink. If you aren't feeling decadent enough from eating a large slice of cake or pie, that is.
