This place is extraordinary as per name, it does suites well. The ambience is perfect, the desserts they have to offer is heaven. The best part, every piece is unique and delicately garnish with real gold leaf. I felt royalty!

Love the Little Italy location. We had a large group and shared a bunch of plates. Their cheeses, vegetable, and Mediterranean plate were good. But of course it’s mostly about the desserts which are beautifully plated and totally decadent. The plus about going with friends...More

Cory took excellent care of our party's needs and we tipped generously. The food is delicious as is the coffee. However, they are too cheap to reprint their menus and mislead guests with false prices. Everything listed is 3% more expensive than listed. So consider...More

This is the more high-throughput version of its quieter location by Balboa park. But they offer a wider variety of sweets and lots more seating, although parking may be hard. Service is great in both locations - part of their menu is "visual", since they...More
