This is an extraordinary place for coffee and unbelievable desserts. Each time we go it is so difficult to choose what to eat! The atmosphere, location and people really makes it fun.

I love everything at Extraordinary Desserts - their beverages, brownies, pastries, cakes, cookies, tarts - really, the tarts! I once had a small lemon tart with tiny purple grapes dusted with gold! No, the gold didn't have any flavor but I felt uber special eating it! They have a drink called Citron Presse that is light, fruity and DELICIOUS! This... More

You will not be disappointed by these amazing and unique desserts. White Chocolate Linzer Torte... wow. Hazelnut cake, white chocolate buttercream frosting with chunks of baked meringue, the sweetness of the frosting is offset by the tart raspberry sauce coating the top of the cake. YUM. You cannot go wrong here.

This lady is a freakin' genius. The desserts are expensive, and there's always a line out the door, but they are WORTH IT! If you are running around in Hillcrest or Balboa Park, go ahead and make some time to stop here. A San Diego institution. I personally love all the fruity desserts -- I had a giant meringue here...

These are very pricey desserts but the flavors, decorations, combinations are fantastic. This location has a small area to eat but doesn't serve savory dishes. Everything we tried was delicious.
