My hubby and I were visiting San Diego and decided one night to skip dinner and just have a great dessert. Extraordinary Desserts was recommended by the hotel staff, so we took the trolley to Little Italy and walked to the restaurant.

We had dessert here with our son when we visited San Diego, our only complaint was there was SO MUCH to choose from. I would like to have a dessert there every night but we live in Ct. If you go you will not be sorry.
