This may have been previously discussed, but then again, this is a board with about 649 different Pinkberry threads. So, I'll bring it up and risk the "this has already been posted" posts ...
Jim Leff, the founding chowhound (? ... that's right, right?) and a very good food writer, wrote a very interesting blog post about the Apple Pan. The Pan is fairly well discussed here and Leff makes it a point to sum up the L.A. feelings about this place to his national readers.
I thought it was a well-done write up, not only for what he says about the Pan, but for what he says in general.
Here is an excerpt:
"Some of us are used to our food hitting certain buttons and striking certain notes. Nothing at Apple Pan clears the gourmet’s high bar. Their fare can’t possibly do for you precisely what ground-to-order sirloin and hand-cut fries will do. But one must learn to sometimes drop expectations, and be submerged in an experience."
