Ara's Pastry

4945 Hollywood Blvd.
Los Angeles, CA 90027-6107


  • Daily, 8 a.m.-9 p.m.
A domino effect of ordering everything in sight possesses anyone who enters Ara's. Quadruple-layer columns of trays extend across the bakery, heavy with cookies, Bavarian cake slices, cream tarts and other European confections. And, of course, there's baklava, the Middle Eastern dessert standard baked here in eight distinct styles: shaped into diamonds, hexagons, flaky cylinders — nearly every shape in the Game of Perfection.
