Resolved: Clementine is the best Jewish bakery in Los Angeles

and it isn't even Jewish.

Claim is based on three items, all so vastly superior to any other known commercial preparation in Los Angeles that they take the crown.

Rugelach - vastly superior, tender buttery crumb, nut and and sugar exterior, lush fruit filling with thre dates, prunes, and apricot

Mr JudiAU: "Don't ever buy me another kind of rugelach"

Hamantaschen - Buttery, crisp goodness, handmade fruit centers that taste like fruit, not month-only Solo

Mr JudiAU: Classic South Park Hanukkah Songs

Honey Cake- dense and wheaty

Mr. JudiAU: Better than Granny's

Chocolate macaroons- french style macaroon with, I think, perhaps a little rice flour in the shell, crisp and dense at the same time, chocolate ganache interior

Mr. JudiAU: *hum* takes box and hides it

Jewish bakeries and desserts don't need to be dairy-free but they are often are.
Pareve = yucky transfat nastiness, heavy greasy flavorless flake
Butter = good
