LAist is going on a delicious spree around LA from A to Z. This week, LAist dabbles in D.

Inspired by the more indulgent Ice Cream Summer adventures at Fosselman's and Lickety Split, LAist now goes bargain basement with Diddy Riese in the heart of Westwood Village.

We must ask, "How on earth does Diddy Riese stay in business?" Even with a line 30-deep, out the door, down the street, LAist just can’t see how 2 cookies and a scoop of ice cream sold one-at-a-time for just $1 each can pay for the Westwood overhead and wages for five men behind the counter. There’s gotta be something else going on back there.
