What do you think is the best quality organic milk in Los Angeles?

Where do you get your grass fed unpasteurized milk from? Thanks!

Best Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies Eastside?

Looking for non-industrial, non store-bought oatmeal chocolate chip cookies in Silverlake, Los Feliz, Atwater, or Glendale that are frikkin' delicious. Buying for a friend whose favorites cookies are oatmeal chocolate chip, so I haven't paid attention to whether or not the usual yummy haunts (i.e. Proof) sells these. Guide me please :).

Incredibly intense, rich, super high quality chocolate brownies at Sweets for the Soul in Atwater.

Afternoon Tea: Belvedere vs Langham vs Montage vs Huntington Library's Rose Tea

Had tea at most of these places and nothing has yet blown me away (compared to other cities, say). Langham was three years ago and it may be different now. The food was just not ultra yummy (sandwiches, scones, etc.). I think, by the way, Chado is solid, if not amazing. I know decor and ambiance is a big part of it, but tea stuff can be so crazy-yummy if it's done well, and I haven't experienced that in L.A. (but have three times over in, say San Francisco, amongst other cities).

looking for vegan-friendly restaurant near Huntington Library in San Marino

I always feel a little peeve-y toward Tender Greens as they do not have a vegetarian protein source. I've asked them about this before and they report that they believe people will not order it. I don't think they're right. I believe if they got a good grilled tofu or tempeh going to add to all of that green stuff, they would be a very solid choice for vegetarians. Right now they're a sucky carb-carb-carb-greens choice for vegetarians. Also, I don't think their food is terrific. I get why non-veg's go there ... you can eat fairly healthfully, although I honestly don't get why it's hugely popular. For veg's, I say it's a no-go.

Saint Orres or Pangea for chowish vegetarian?

We'll be in the Gualala (and north) area next week for an overnight and will only have time to eat at one or the other. From previous posts, Saint Orres seems a little more yummy to most, but it also looks like that's in large part due to the extensive game on the menu, so we're thinking maybe for us Pangea is the better pick. One delicious vegetarian dish on an otherwise meaty menu is just fine, as long as it's truly delish. Or an amazing appetizer and scrumptious desert ... We await your wise chow words, and thank you!!
