L.A. Creamery introduces Angelenos to a brand-new style of ice cream parlor with the November 2010 opening of its first location at the Westfield Topanga Shopping Center located in Canoga Park. With 12 rotating flavors, guests can enjoy a mix of traditional favorites, out-of-the-box, and “adults only” options—all made from scratch by Chef Jessica Goryl. In addition to an unconventional menu, the ice cream boutique sets a modern tone with its sleek design by Kelly Architects, stylish staff uniforms, and a focus on sustainable, high-quality ingredients—L.A. Creamery is the only ice cream shop in Los Angeles to source organic dairy from Straus Family Creamery. Armed with innovative ideas, Goryl, along with Operations Director Sharon Aronson—former general manager at Pizzeria Mozza—looks forward to defining the image of a 21st-century ice cream parlor.

Whether guests have a traditional sweet tooth or a hankering for the unexpected, L.A. Creamery will have something to satisfy everyone. Creations from Goryl, a former pastry chef at such top local restaurants as BLT Steak and Café del Rey, include classics such as Roasted Banana & Peanut Butter Crunch and Rocky Road with Valrhona Chocolate ice cream filled with Roasted Almonds and Handmade Marshmallow, and out-of-the-box flavors such as Keylime Pie, Chai Tea Latte, Buerre Noisette (Brown Butter), and Caramelized Honey & Blue Cheese. Guests can even turn their visit in to happy hour with flavors such as Milk Chocolate Guinness and Cosmopolitan Sorbet.

In addition to ice cream, L.A. Creamery will offer San Francisco’s beloved Four Barrel Coffee, pastries such as Goryl’s signature Blackberry-Ginger Scones, and a selection of mix-ins, sorbets, and popsicles made in-house using all-natural and organic ingredients from local farms and farmers’ markets. “I really believe in the integrity of the ingredients,” Goryl says. “My passion is to illuminate their flavors, which is why I rarely use more than five in any one recipe.”

To complement its unique desserts, L.A. Creamery’s look deviates from the pastel color scheme and retro décor of many ice cream shops, boasting a modern atmosphere and elegant design. Kelly Architects—the team responsible for designing such L.A. hot spots as Pizzeria and Osteria Mozza, Edison Bar, and the Tar Pit—used a combination of sleek and textured materials to represent the diverse Los Angeles population from young Hollywood trendsetters to easygoing beach-goers. Staff will look effortlessly chic dressed in dark blue 501 jeans and black cotton T-shirts. “There are so many different types of people in this city, but one common thread is the desire to bring fresh perspectives to traditions,” Goryl says. “We can’t wait for guests to enjoy our take on the iconic ice cream experience.”

L.A. Creamery is located on the first level of the Westfield Topanga Shopping Center adjacent to Nordstrom and will be open Monday-Saturday 10 a.m.-9 p.m., and Sunday 11 a.m.-7 p.m. For additional information, please call the corporate office at 323.782.9800 or visit L.A. Creamery online at or on Facebook or Twitter.
