Extraordinary Desserts: "The name says it all!!!" Extraordinary Desserts Tip by BLewJay

Extraordinary Desserts, San Diego: 11 reviews and 12 photos


As a wonderful after dinner treat, we decided to venture over to Extraordinary Desserts...we had heard many great things about the store and wanted to "taste" for ourselves...WOW!!!

Favorite Dish: As a light snack, we've shared a Serrano Ham Panini (with buffalo mozzerella, balsamic onions, lettuce and red plum conserve). LJ has had desserts called the Viking Torte (a must for chocolate lovers...chocolate crème brulée is hidden between chocolate cake layers, smothered with caramel, milk chocolate whipped cream and crushed chocolate almond pralines) as well as Cappuccino Nut Torte with Lion Kona Chocolate Macadamia Nut Coffee while I've had the Extraordinary Carrot Cake (carrots, golden raisins, orange zest, chunks of pineapple, walnuts and coconut enveloped with a light cream cheese mousse) as well as Chocolate Macadamia Nut Torte with Lion Kona Vanilla Macadamia Nut Coffee.

Address: 1430 Union Street
