Dolores Restaurant and Bakery

Dolores and I go way back. I've planted my tush in these booths many, many times over the last 15 or so years. I've had uncountable big Dolores salads, Jumbo Jim burgers with Suzy Q fries, and liver and onion dinners. Lots of meals that were all anchored by their otherworldly cinnamon roll.

And anchor is the appropriate word for the massive treat! This baby is like six inches across, gushing with cinnamon and dripping with glaze. It is even served with a steak knife to cut through the heft. Wow!!

Dolores, in the Century City-Santa Monica adjacent area of LA, went through a change last year. On the back wall where the Toulouse-Lautrec Moulin Rouge-esque prints are hanging used to be the home of the dessert rotating display case. The menu prices went up with the addition of the Wi-Fi service. And just the back portion of the seats were updated from the brown vinyl. But, I'm thrilled to share that the cinnamon roll hasn't changed one tasty bit!!

  1. Do they still have liver and onions? I remember that the menu was being changed. Please tell me the big salad is still on the menu!

  2. Big Salad is still there, but no liver and onions. Sad day, indeed. But the cinnamon roll still rocks!
