JUST THE BEST OF THE BEST

This place is something different. And I say THIS place because I prefer MUCH more this location rather than the one in little italy. The IVOIRE is THE cake.

Unbelievable! We stopped in to get desserts to take back to our hotel room. They are pretty enough for a wedding or best party. Will go back again!

Absolutely amazing desserts. I would recommend not leaving San Diego without trying this place. The desserts are huge and you really do get value for your money. Might be worth sharing unless you have a serious sweet tooth!

This place turned out to be the highlight of our trip to San Diego. We got a Costco voucher which gave us 100$ worth of products for 79$.When we entered we were given a mini clipboard to list our choice of desserts. We first settled at our table placed our order for the paninis and then walked up to the... More

The selection was grandiose which made it difficult to decide on one so we ended up with three. The staff was courteous and efficient. Everything was perfect except for the space and prices. The space is small and the desserts were a... More

The prettiest desserts I've ever seen. The items in the display cases almost look fake. Always stop by here while in SD. Have had cookies, cakes and chocolates. I would love to see one of the custom cakes.

The desserts are decadent, amazing and enticing to the eyes. Expect for a long line and waits so bring a book or make sure you have tons of battery power on your phone.

The staff is wonderful, patient and can explain even the most elaborate (and they are!) desserts that they have. The cakes, pastries and cookies are beyond anything you will ever taste and are just amazing. I take friends here for their birthdays and they always are excited no matter their age!

Great desserts with fun presentation. If you like desserts, you'll love this place. So much to choose from. We got a few with friends and sat outside and enjoyed every bite!
