Extraordinarily decadent deserts. Large and sumptuous portions. You pick your choice out of the display case and they bring to your table. Service was a big slow but friendly.

Huge selection of beautiful hand crafted desserts. Great for a night out with friends or your significant other. So tough to decide on streusel, cakes, danishes, tarts, cheesecakes, cookies and much more. Eat there or take it to go. Enjoy!

Always a favorite destination when in San Diego. Amazingly and beautifully crafted cakes and pastries that are not only pretty in the outside but delectable and mouth watering as well.

We spent $57 on desserts and were asked for our forks before we could finish. Also we were told "we would just have to watch our 18 month old" because he was in the way. The desserts were okay but definitely not "Extraordinary"

This was my first visit and my son and wife took me with my grandchildren for my Birthday after we had an incredible Sushi dinner. This Extraordinary Deserts location on 5th blew me away. Over the top choices and I'll have to post photos later. I would have given 5 stars however, the flourless chocolate cake was to dry for... More

Stopped here for some dessert on the recommendation of friends and family. They have a wide variety of desserts and what's available changes daily. The prices are a little steep but the portions are large. Just be advised that some items cost extra to go because they charge you for the ceramic dish they are prepared in. They do have... More

It is a little expensive, but I understand that is all they sell, and the portions are very big. The desserts are delicious. As is the coffee. My Italian friend loved the cappuccino and said the foam was just right. I wish there was a taster's option, because we all wanted the same meringue with strawberry (the sauce on the... More

Was recommended this place by a friend. Is more of a lunch place IMO but then you won't be needing dinner! Salad delicious as was onion dip. After an hour whittling down dessert to have actually found it was a bit rich for me as was tempted by chocolate which don't usually have. Service was exceptional and they changed it... More
