On the recommendation of a co-worker, I stopped in at Extraordinary Desserts after a relaxing weekend in SD. Truthfully, we drove by on Sunday night and the line was still out the door...so Monday morning it was. As we were leaving town, I ordered a mix of five desserts to enjoy at home. Needless to say, the lemon tart didn't even make it to the on-ramp of the 5 freeway. It was wonderfully tart and refreshing. I've loaded pics of the other items we brought home and all look delectable. I can tell you the prices might make you gasp out loud, but when you realize most desserts can easily serve two, you'll give a sigh of relieve. The staff was extremely friendly and patient with my indecision...something I'm sure they're used to, actually. The woman who helped me this morning even named her favorite, so I added it to my ""to go"" box of goodies. I definitely will make a stop in when we're in SD next...I'll need to try that lemon brulee I saw in the display...and maybe a nice salad & cup of tea.
