Cake Monkey

Founded in 2008 by Lisa Olin (a former executive TV producer & lifelong dessert lover) and Elizabeth Belkind (a pastry chef who studied under Nancy Silverton while at Campanile, and went on to helm all things dessert at Neal Fraser's since-closed restaurant, Grace), Cake Monkey is an LA-based brand & bakery known for both classic, delicious baked goods and whimsical, updated takes on nostalgic childhood snack treats. (Think riffs on the Ding-Dong, the HoHo, the Sno-Ball, the Pop-Tart, and more.) What began as a wholesale business quickly developed a cult following and critical praise from local and national food communities – and led to the opening of their first shop in Beverly Grove in 2015, and their second shop in Westlake Village in 2018.
