Danielle Keene’s Bittersweet Treats grand opened yesterday, December 4, at 10:00 A.M., and we were on hand to offer prodigious drool to offer cheerleading casually observe the celebration of sugar and butter so close to Pasadena City College. This is what a red-hot pastry chef and cookie porn in Pasadena look like. The photos of cookies, ice creams, macaroons, Boston cream pies, and fig bars really need no words. Prices range from $2.25 for the red velvet whoopie pie, to $4 for a slice of pie, and reflect a more palatable Eastside price point than the current crop of Downtown pastry shops. There is also a full espresso menu featuring LA Mill coffee pulled from a Faema, as well as Laura Ann’s jams for sale.
Bittersweet Treats, 1731 E. Colorado Blvd. Pasadena.
