Everyone raves about this place. They have super beautiful fancy desserts that are impressive. Cakes will cost you around $50 and desserts are around $10. They have tons of cool teas that they serve in teapots. It is a great fun place to go with a few friends to have dessert or drink tea.

The desserts are amazing and you can definitely make yourself sick here because everything looks so good you'll want to sample more than one. Even with the taste living up to expectations this place is extremely expensive so I wouldn't give this place 5 stars for that reason.

Very pricey for desserts. The ambience was casual and romantic in the evening. Lots of seating for customers and free water, which is needed. The desserts are very pretty looking. The Vietnamese coffee ice cream was particularly good. The chocolate chip ice cream was not - we didn't get any chocolate chips in our ice cream!

One of my friends is a local from San Diego - and she always brings me & anyone who is visiting her to this place. I have eaten their dessert a few times over the years. In my opinion, the best item they have is the blueberry coffee cake (which one of the employees told me is their best seller).... More

Can't get any better than this place for deserts. I highly recommend. Kinda of kick back place with patio dining. We always have dinner elsewhere and then drive here.

Since my husband and I are gluten-free, we were delighted to be offered a choice of 4 desserts. Our selection was a flour-less chocolate cake topped with a plethora of fresh fruit with whipped cream on the side. This portion could easily serve 3 people. Each bite was beyond delightful. This tart has to be the best dessert we have... More

I had the most delicious tea here; it was a highlight to my evening. However, I didn't notice that the small tea was $7.00 until I got home. Yikes! Lemon tart was good too!

Desserts that are dream-come-true beautiful: all the right kinds of gooey and gorgeous, garnished with orchids and flowers - the desserts here are ridiculously over the top and amazing. The atmosphere was industrial cafeteria meets cavernous barn. The people watching was spectacular. I don't know if this is a tourist mecca or if locals frequent Extraordinary Desserts, who cares? Bring... More

This restaurant was really good. A lot of vegetarian options. Several tea options. It was quite expensive though. For 3 of us to eat, drinking water, each got a dessert our bill was $84. The sandwich was great but not worth that much money. The sandwiches came with a side of olives (yuck). My friend only went to the restaurant... More
