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 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 wait staff is courteous even though they are juggling numerous customers at one time. Overall, it is clean. The atmosphere is lively but all ages are... More

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!

Incredible fancy desserts with edible flowers and scrumptious ice cream! Definitely on the pricy side, but you're paying for an experience.

Gem of a Dessert spot that surprises with the range of choices from Dulce de Leche w/ Carmel cheesecake to fruit tartes; croissants filled with every goodness imaginable. Go and make your tummy happy!

Cakes, tarts, danish, every treat and dessert known to man! You could not be in this joint and not get that sweet tooth satisfied! I had a passion fruit and coconut... More
