Here's the place to pack that all back on!
Extraordinary Desserts is just that -- a little cafe that has to die for desserts and the strongest coffee I've ever had, along with a selection of teas and various goodies to bring home.
Don't make the mistake we did -- i.e. eating dinner beforehand. We both had pieces of cake that were huge, rich and utterly decadent. I took some of mine back to the B&B for later. Dave (hubby) got to it before I was able to finish it.
How it works: wait in line at the counter, choose what you want, pay, then take your number to where you're going to sit (either inside or outside on the patio). The waitress brings you your dessert, coffee/beverage, rock sugar & cream. Desserts are elegantly presented with extra sauce decorating the plate and garnished with flowers.
Cakes were about $6/7 per slice, coffee a couple dollars. Not cheap but definitely worth it.
I've been tempted to go back to San Diego just to visit this place.
