This is a popular place for anyone that is after dessert and a coffee. I frankly am over thirty and do not like standing in line just because it is the place to be on a Friday night. Put off big time when one customer was killed and another injured whilst standing in line, 2006. Hasn't put me off completely but always at the back of my mind when I visit.

Visited San Diego for the first time during Restaurant Week and omg, the desserts here will make you want to move! Everything I tried was delicious! Loose teas and amber sugar accompanied my cakes, Danish and turnovers each time. Servers are patient and warm! Please open on the East Coast, please.

Was this the best dessert I have ever had? No. But was it worth going to? Yes. I ordered the lemonade to go with my cake and it was entirely too sour. I told the clerk and she immediately asked if I wanted a new one or to try something else. I then had the kiwi lemonade and it Rocked! So yummy. We had the Shangri-La. It was alright, but I wouldn't order it again.

Love to come here before a show at the Civic Center for a light dinner and special dessert either before or after show. First, you have to admire the works of art before choosing just the perfect treat. Then walk off those delicious calories to the show or wherever you're headed to knowing you're experiencing something special - whether it's a birthday, anniversary, or just living life the way it's meant to be enjoyed.
