Merely Sweets is a dessert shop in Brea. They're famous for their banana pudding, and owner Diana Yoon makes batches every day, thoughtfully making sure each sits for just the right amount of time so the vanilla wafers are neither crunchy nor too soggy from all the cream or 'nanas. The cup 'o pudding isn't overly sweet.
