The cafe is part of the overall Rodeo Collection, a two-story retail and dining development on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, California.

An architect by training, Nahid Parsa discovered that her true passion did not lie in constructing buildings, but in perfecting the art of baking and cake-making. Over the past 30 years, Nahid has worked as the pastry chef and cake designer at her boutique cake shop. In 2006, Nahid created a $20 million cake for the Luxury Bridal Show which took place on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills. The lowest tier was covered in tiny gold flakes, but the price tag comes from large diamonds studding the cake from top to bottom. It was watched over by six armed guards while at the show.
After a long and successful career, Nahid has decided to close La Patisserie Artistique in preparation for retirement and to list the contents of her cake shop on LocalAuctions.com. "It is not very often the general public is invited to participate in a sale like this." says Gabriel Prado, Founder of LocalAuctions.com.
