Impress Your Valentine with Extraordinary Desserts

Extraordinary Desserts San Diego CaliforniaExtraordinary Desserts is the place to impress your date for an indulgent Valentine’s Day dessert.  I recently had the chance to eat at their Little Italy location in San Diego, and was in awe when I walked through the doors.  Their vast selection of decadent desserts and pastries is there to greet you, and the decision making begins.  Of course, you can sit down and order from the menu, but it’s best to decide with your eyes at Extraordinary Desserts.  While there, we enjoyed a slice of the Dame Chocolat and La Bete Noir which came artfully decorated with fresh flowers.  La Bete Noir was my favorite because it combined decadent dark chocolate with vanilla hinted throughout.  I truly savored each bite, this is not the type of dessert you can rush.

Karen Krasne opened the first Extraordinary Desserts (the Balboa Park location) in 1988, and has built an amazing reputation in lively city of San Diego ever since.  Karen uses organic ingredients whenever possible and each dessert is embellished with locally grown flowers to add an extra elegant touch.  Remember when I told you that I not only love the flavor of my desserts, but presentation as well…Extraordinary Desserts gets high marks for both!  Extraordinary Desserts was also recently featured on The Food Network’s The Best Thing I Ever Ate.
