Don’t you hate when a place doesn’t live up to it’s name? Dollar General, for example. I haven’t been in one of those in over a decade because not everything in there is a dollar and it pisses me off.
Well, that’s not the case with Extraordinary Desserts. I first heard about it from someone in Las Vegas over the summer and being the dessert fiend I am, I made a note in my phone about it. I ‘d kind of forgotten about it until I happened to park right in front of it this morning. Sure it was 10 AM, but since I was there, I figured I might as well go in and look. Ha, yeah right. There was no way I was leaving there without a treat in hand!
Every item in the cases was delicately made by hand and topped with fresh flowers. Many were golf-leafed, and each was more gorgeous than the last. My future mother-in-law and I decided to split a cheese cake brownie. It was so rich, wonderful, and decadent- half was more than enough to satisfy my sweet tooth. I washed it down with a small cup of their coffee, which also exceeded expectations.
In addition to to-go treats, they have ample seating. It’d be the perfect place for a first date with a guy from Match.com (when you don’t want to commit to a whole dinner in case the guy sucks) or a solo PMS binge (hey, I’m not here to judge). Regardless of your motive, anyone in the San Diego area should go pronto. You’ll probably find me there- I’ll be the girl with chocolate from ear to ear.
