Extraordinary Dessert (San Diego)

By in 18: Greater LA

Let me put up this almost forgotten entry before we left the country. The beautiful Extraordinary Dessert‘s floral decorated cakes and tea room are part of my San Diego experience every time I go there. When I went there few months ago, I found that they opened a restaurant version at downtown (Little Italy).

Upon entrance, the cake display is similar to the original cake shop.

Beyond the cakes is the spacious dining space.

Bruschetta ($3.5 each): Avocado with Artichoke Truffle Tapenade, and Cashel Blue with Pear and Fig Jam. Delicious and surprisingly filling.

Mixed Green. The flower petals made a plain salad extraordinary.

Portobello & Brie Panini. A little light for my taste, but the bread is very fresh and good!

    my friend kept talking about this place. Your post (and the older one) tell me I should go give it a try. Too bad I don’t make it down there that often
