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!

If you want a late night dessert you've got to visit Extraordinary Desserts. You'll probably have to wait about 30 minutes in line but it's worth it. All the desserts are made to look and taste great. I can never pass up chocolate anything. But the kids all love the fruit cakes and tarts. The prices are high but you... More

We walked to this place from our hotel. And it was worth it. All I can say is WOW the desserts look so beautiful and taste even better. The portions are very large I suggest splitting them. I had a coconut cheese cake with a brown sugar ice cream. It was amazing. We had to wait about 30 minutes for... More

I was introduced to Extrordinary Desserts by my air bnb host and I wish we had this place in Sydney! It is cake heaven, amazingly gorgeous cakes, it's like the mad hatter tea party for adults in the beauty, colour and creativity of cakes. The cakes are a bit on the large size so sharing is always fun, the more... More
