The desserts are visually stunning but most importantly taste really good! We went for lunch and had a panini first which was also delicious. The service was great, the food was great and the atmosphere very calm and laid back.

Really cute spot that's kind of isolated from other restaurants. Tried the brownie cheesecake & lemon ricotta cheesecake and the cheesecake probably changed my life. If you're in SD go here and treat yo' self.

We were in San Diego for 2 nights and went to extraordinary desserts 3 times. The desserts are a work of art. Be prepared to wait if you go on a weekend, but it's worth it. A must!!!!
