Yes, the desserts are a feast for the eyes as well as the tastebuds, but being more of a "savory" than a "sweets" person, I decided to try this location for their non-dessert foods. What a nice surprise! The ambience was great, the service was friendly, and the décor/design was cool but welcoming. We sat at the bar and were glad we did.
We ordered a charcuterie platter which was well done. We also got a Greek salad which was good, but they did something strange: the menu said butterleaf lettuce and was a primary reason why we got it, but when the salad arrived, it had mixed greens instead -- romaine, baby spinach, etc. Funny that they didn't change the menu description or our server didn't mention any substitutions. The wine selection was great, though our server didn't know much about it.
Yes, there are kinks for sure, but overall, it was a very good experience and a nice way to end our evening. Will definitely be back!

For once a place that lives up to it's name! We were slightly worried that we'd be disappointed when we read a review that the choice was not as good as the other branch. Frankly if there was more choice is would be completely extraordinary!!
This place provides food theatre as well as the experience of eating desserts of your dreams
The cheese board looked amazing too
Not just form deserts but all sybdining with breakfast, sandwiches etc
We visited on our last day of a 2 week visit to San Diego..next time we'll be there on day 1,2...14 etc
Do not miss!!

This is the place to go for decadent desserts. We went with my sister and brother-in-law. I never saw so many choices - cakes, cookies, pastries, brownies, ice cream and sorbet. The cakes were decorated beautifully - likes pieces of art. My husband and I shared the Au Chocolate Cake - for anyone who loves chocolate with a scoop of milk chocolate chip ice cream. The cake was rich and flavorful. The ice cream was creamy and flavorful too. In addition they do serve food, coffee and tea drinks. We sat at the bar and avoided a long wait time to get a table,

Hidden between Little Italy and the courts on Broadway this a must visit for anyone with a sweet tooth who enjoys quality desserts and great service. The choice is outstanding, the quality is first class and the service fast and friendly. Some of the savoury meals I saw coming past looked OK too!

Thanks to my daughter-in-law for showing us this place several years ago. It is now a place we go to when we visit San Diego. I try to get a different item each time we visit and haven't had a bad one (or one that was not exceptional) yet. A "must go to" if you love desserts.
