Very gourmet. Decadent and delicious! We visited the location in downtown San Diego and it was flawless. Prepare for a big line, but its very worth the wait.

Dropped by on a weekday afternoon at about 3pm. No line. Found street parking right in front of the shop. Ordered a parfait-type dessert and a brownie. Total cost was about $15. The desserts had flower petals on them. While the presentation was special, I'll stick to cheaper desserts elsewhere.

I went here after dinner and was not disappointed. The desserts were beautiful and tasted fantastic! I had a passion fruit chocolate cake and it was delicious. I took it to go so my wait was not that long at about 8pm at night. Highly recommend!

The desserts are good but pricey, BUT well worth the wait and the price. Some of the wait staff could be a bit more attentive but other than that YUMMY!
