Red Velvet: Bricks and Scones

Last weekend, I needed to pass some time while J was at his guitar class in Hollywood so I searched yelp.com on my iphone for nearby coffee shops.  I found Bricks and Scones, and am so glad I did. It was awesome.

This is the kind of coffee shop that I love to study and read in.  It was full of cozy couches indoors and on nice days, they have a fabulous patio.  They serve intelligentsia coffee, have free wifi and plenty of power outlets.

They are known for their scones - I tried the blueberry. It was solid.

But the icing on the cake, was their red velvet. I only bought a mini cupcake since I was so full from all our eating that day.  When I got home and had it later for dessert, I regretted that I hadn't bought more. It was delicious. The cake was flavorful (I think more than the usual amount of cocoa and vanilla), moist and light. The buttercream frosting perfectly complimented the cake.  I give it an A - which puts it up there with Sprinkles.

I wish this was on the West Side. If it was, I'd probably be there every day. Nonetheless, I'm happy to have found my favorite coffee shop in LA. :)
