An amazing and sinfully delicious bakery. I was visiting a friend and she insisted we stop in for a sample. This wonderful woman behind the counter loaded up a plate of awesome treats for us to sample. Okay, so we tasted a chocolate cheesecake, a carrot cake, some kind of cookie, an icy coffee treat, another something which I am... More

Love this local shop that has rich Italian coffee and sinful desserts and chocolates. One drawback is that there's no place to sit and savor the smells and tastes of the open kitchen/shop. One bonus is a super friendly barista who's quite generous with samples. My friend from Temecula always wants to stop and shop here, but not on Mondays... More

Have tried several cakes and truffles here... and it just keeps getting better and better. The last score was the coconut cake. So delicious was this piece of gorgeous heaven, that the recipients (for whom it was intended) barely got any... Hehe!....But once they tasted it, they understood why. Put it in the trunk, or it wont make it home.... More

Get a slice of the oh my god cake. And the caramels are the best I've ever had. If you need to take a dessert to a dinner party, get a cake here. If you just need a little something for yourself, this is the place.

Spontaneous stop on our vacation in San Diego. So glad we wandered by. They have wonderful choices of truffle and really delicious biscotti. I had a dark chocolate biscotti with cranberries. Awesome! We'll be making this a regular stop while in San Diego and back soon!

After seeing the shop over the years of visiting the area, I finally stopped in last week. They give you a little plate of samples if some of their different cakes, cookies and candies. That is a really nice touch, and helps to make selections of wonderful looking confections. I went back yesterday to get a variety of truffles for... More

When you open the door, a sweet smell welcomes you inside. We were greeted with samples to try before making our selection - OMG! The sweets were to die for. We ended up with 4 truffles, a piece of Sin Cake, and a caramel bar. So good - a must for anyone who enjoys sweets.

I'm so glad I happened upon this little shop. It's off Scott Street so it's not right on the main drag. What a treat! While I shopped, I had a cafe latte that was so good. The caramels are made from the grandmother's recipe, using the same pot she used and they are the best I've had. as a matter... More

If you have a sweet tooth, this is a great place. We had both candy and cakes and will go back again and again if we are in the area.
