hen Lisa Ritter and I first opened Big Sugar Bakeshop in 2006, we wanted to create the kind of bakery we always dreamed about having in our own neighborhood. It's a small, inviting place that welcomes new friends and old with a happy combination of delicious desserts, one-of-a-kind gifts and unique gift cards. Nine years later, the love for traditional American baking by our bakers and devoted customers keeps Big Sugar Bakeshop thriving. Everything we bake is still done in small batches throughout the day, all by hand only using a mixer and an oven. We continue to use the finest natural ingredients. We still crack cage-free eggs and our dairy comes from a local provider that treats cows humanely. We also use ingredients that do not contain any animal by-products so that’s why you won’t see marshmallow items in our bakery case. We use fine imported chocolate from Belgium and France and yes, you most definitely can taste the difference.

The way we bake may be considered old fashion but we love to bake from scratch the wholesome way. In 2014, we opened a second location so that we could spread our love for traditional American baking to another great neighborhood, downtown Los Angeles. This year, our goal is to continue to keep the tradition of wholesome American baking alive here in Los Angeles. We appreciate all of our customers’ support and we look forward to seeing you soon.
