My wife and I stopped in after a quick stop in Little Italy. She had the Neapolitan and I had the blood orange ricotta cake. Both were stellar! The service was great as well. Can't go wrong here. Plenty to choose from. Pricey but worth it. More than enough to share as well.

Extraordinary experience! Upon arrival you check in with the hostess and then you are allowed to go in and begin to browse the display cases filled with beautifully presented desserts. Choosing only one is not an easy job. It appeared that we would be waiting for quite a while but we were called to our table after only 10 minutes... More

I'm a big dessert fan but this place does not meet my standards. The cafe ambience was so so and there's no air conditioning,(is hot day at 85 degrees and humid) The cakes were beautiful but serving presentation was sub standard. I ordered the tirimisu and a cappuccino. The cake was mushy and taste nothing like tirimisu. Too much money... More

Almost every time we're in San Diego, we have to make a stop here for dessert. Sometimes we dine in, mostly to go. The prices are high, lines are long, parking isn't free or close by. But it's usually worth the trouble. My wife just loves the desserts here, I'm not a big dessert person but I'll go for a... More

The service was fast, friendly, and efficient, the goods showcased beautifully. Too bad they didn't live up to their looks, though. We ordered 4 different types of desserts, and when there was a cake layer, the cake was dry. Also, a particular slice of one was much much smaller than the other of the same type of dessert, so portion... More

We waited 45 minutes in line just to give our order, then another 20 minutes to get it. The desserts are not worth $14. Save your time and go to Ben & Jerry's instead.

Wonderful variety of various desserts, coffee, and teas. One dessert can be split for two, as usually very rich. We get all of our birthday cakes there.

The long line almost deterred us, but so glad we stuck around. Entertained ourselves while waiting by looking at all of the amazing desserts to choose from. All of the items we tried both looked and tasted beautiful. Only sad note was that they ran out of one of the desserts that we really wanted to try. Sounds like a... More
