Founded by two childhood friends, restaurateur and entrepreneur Samuel Baroux and real state executive Eric Shomof, they made their dreams of working together a reality.
Since its gran opening in 2017, the dessert shop has dominated L.A.'s waffle scene with its own spin on the bubble waffle, waffle sticks, and liege waffles.
'The Dolly Llama’ attracts families, dating folks, and people who just really love waffles and ice cream.
With its aesthetic flare and large selection, the shop prides itself on its Hong Kong bubble waffle because its lighter and fluffier than the tradition Belgium waffle.

The name is based on a llama. She apparently lived on a farm in the South of France when Baroux saw her.

This llama had such an impact on confounder Samuel Baroux that he decided to name the shop after his ‘"favorite llama." Hence, why the logo features a llama with sunglasses on.
Baroux says llamas are social and friendly who generally love people, and so they wanted the ice cream shop to embody just that.
