“GPS found”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

we lef tthe work christmas party and wanted desert and some drinks. i typed into my gps deserts and found this great treasure in the most unsuspecting warehouse area of San DIego. Really great and enticing menu, service was great even though they were really busy. The appetizers did not dissapoint and the deserts were heavenly, definitely will return

“Be prepared for a long line”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

The desserts are impossibly huge and the youre sure to collapse into a sugar coma afterwards but eh..what are you gonna do. Its all substance as the space is spartan with rustic benches and tables..but the line round the block speaks volumes...grab friends and chat in the line before you eat up. Its a rare, expenisve treat.

If you need a dessert to impress or make someone feel extra special, this is a sure thing. They create the most beautiful cakes topped with fresh flowers!

“A good place to forget your diet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

Everything here is scrumptious. Forget counting calories and throw carb fear out the window. The desrts are creative and although you can expect some old favorites to reappear, there is something always new to tryi.

“Looks Great, but expensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

People ooh and aah over the pastries which indeed are works of art, but they are very expensive. But for a special event it would be worth it
