Trying to find the best desserts and coffee in San Diego? 10Best has you covered. Where you go depends on what you're looking for. The places mentioned on this list are dine-in, for those perhaps seeking a late afternoon snack or after dinner treat.
Perhaps the county's most famous dessert shop is Karen Krasne's Extraordinary Desserts in Little Italy, one of the firsts to emphasize sweets. This location houses 7000 square feet of contemporary space in which to enjoy a glass of champagne or cup of coffee with a spectacular seasonal dessert. Now there's a Balboa Park location.
If you crave a moist, dense cake--say carrot or banana with buttercream frosting--visit Come On In! Cafe in La Jolla (there are other locations throughout San Diego). Big slices of cake are offered dine-in or to-go. Call in advance to see if your favorite flavor is being cut that day. Or, lob in an order for a whole cake to-go, starting at an incredibly-reasonable $30.
Feeling like pie? Betty's Pie Whole, a hidden gem in Encinitas, offers individual sweet and savory pies that can be eaten in a saloon-like cafe. We're talking chicken pot pie and even chocolate cookie dough pie up for grabs.
