Ali Arbabha and Leila Tavakoli, a dedicated husband-and-wife team, founded both a wholesale brand and a bustling Bakery Café. This establishment boasts a diverse selection of sweets, pastries, deli sandwiches, wraps, salads, and an expansive breakfast menu. Since its humble beginnings as Shirini Shop in 2009, where they sold their iconic baklava at local farmer’s markets, the duo's L.A. Bakery has been on an upward trajectory. Residing in Carson City, they personally oversee its operations.
Their culinary philosophy revolves around wholesome cooking techniques that retain the nutritive essence of ingredients. Every dish at L.A. Bakery exudes both taste and health, crafted with precision and care. The bakery is especially known for catering to those with food allergies and dietary requirements, offering a plethora of options that are vegan-friendly, gluten-free, and/or sugar-free. Their renowned baklava, for instance, is free of trans-fats and is also vegan-friendly.
L.A. Bakery's menu is a feast, from breakfast bagels and pancakes to lunch's quiches and salads. Inside, a warm ambiance encourages guests to indulge, while the patio is a haven on sunny days. Their baked goods, spanning muffins to their iconic baklava, are standout stars. For those with bustling schedules, the online store offers pies and cakes, perfect with their assortment of coffees and rejuvenating smoothies.
