We stopped by to take out 4 deserts which end up paying over $30 so it was not really cheap deserts. There were 2 women working but none of them were really friendly and helpful. You need to ask for their help otherwise they do not.

We had sandwiches and salad and of course desert and were blown away!! The pesto and goat cheese grilled sandwich was delightful and very filling. My wife and I shared it in a combo with a salad so we could save room for desert. So many choices and sooo good!!

This was an amazing dessert shop that everyone should try if you are a cake fan!!! These are some of the most beautiful yet still delicious cakes I've seen. Has a strawberry and guava cake slice and an all chocolate slice and both were just dreamy.

We waited in a long line, but it was totally worth it. We tried the chocolate croissant bread pudding, the blood orange ricotta cake, and an individual chocolate cheese cake. Everything was amazing! I could eat the bread pudding everyday. This is a must if you're eating desert in San Diego!

I'm not a big dessert lover but this boutique shop is a coffee and tea lovers dream. The desserts are beautiful, service is great and the atmosphere is romantic. I have been here many times and I have never been disappointed.

Had such a great time for my friend's birthday. We took her out in San diego for lunch and we did a beer tasting then ended the day with a visit to extraordinary desserts! Everyone got something different and we all shared. So much fun! Everything there was delicious!
