“Michelle's Deserts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

Michelle is the consumate desert chef...she was fantastic at the Beligian Lion, learning from a true chef *her father". The quality has remained high for as long as she has been in business.
I go here often for the family and bring her creations to the homes of friends.

“quick -- I needed to contribute a dessert”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

I love the many desserts that Michelle Coulon has on display at any moment. They are as delicious as they are beautiful. And, my friends appreciate my bringing an assortment along with me to complete a beautiful meal.

“A Gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2012 via mobile

Ordered Buche de Noel here and it was the star of the Holiday Dinner amongst some snarly food Snobs. Absolutely delicious! Super cute little place and the custom cakes are off the hook!

“Best wedding cake anywhere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2008

Michelle Coulon's wedding cakes are the best. You can taste the organic, made from scatch, goodness in every bite. My husband and I, along with every single guest at our wedding can't stop talking about how amazing the cake looked and tasted. Go to the shop and taste it for yourselves. There is no way you'll go with any other wedding cakes after you have tasted Michelle Coulon's. It is definitely worth the price!

“Belgian Country Ambience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2005

If you only have one night in La Jolla, this is THE place to dine. The Poulet Normand is extraordinary. The cozy feel and superb California wine selection help provide an experience second to none. Make sure you set aside a couple of hours to enjoy all of the courses. After the most incredible dessert, Gateau Aileen (a spongecake filled with fresh berries), the chef personally thanked us and spoke with us about our travels. Best dining in San Diego, period.
