After almost four long years since my last visit, I was overjoyed to find Extraordinary Desserts still thriving as the go-to spot for delectable treats in San Diego. As someone who doesn't typically indulge in sweets, this place holds a special place in my heart, and I rarely find myself yearning to visit a dessert shop. But Extraordinary Desserts is an exception, and my recent visit only reinforced why it remains a favorite among locals and visitors alike.
Located on Union Street, this dessert haven exudes charm and elegance, offering a warm and inviting atmosphere that instantly sets the stage for a delightful dessert experience. Despite the changes due to the pandemic, the restaurant has adapted well with a new ordering system where you queue up to place your order and then find a comfortable spot to sit. This setup actually adds a sense of leisure and coziness to the overall ambiance, allowing customers to take their time savoring their chosen treats.
Speaking of treats, let's delve into some of the most beloved flavors that have won my heart as well. The Blood Orange Ricotta, with its tangy twist and creamy texture, is an absolute delight. The Torta Misu, a tantalizing take on the classic tiramisu, is a heavenly indulgence that never fails to impress. For fans of timeless pies, the Banana Cream Pie with its velvety banana goodness is a must-try. And let's not forget the Lemon Bars, which boast a delightful balance of sweetness and zesty freshness that leaves a lasting impression.
To make the experience even better, I highly recommend pairing these delectable delights with the in-house coffee. The robust coffee flavors enhance the sweetness of the desserts, creating a harmonious blend that elevates the overall taste.
