What You'll Get
Jump to: Reviews | Legal Desserts
Devour a brownie, baklava, or an entire Monte Bianco cake from San Diego Desserts. Today's Groupon gets you $15 worth of delicious desserts, ambrosial baked goods, and savory bistro fare at San Diego's favorite bakery and cafe. If superabundance of custard-oozing éclairs, chocolate-dipped strawberries, and delicately tiered tiramisu causes dizziness, swelling, or an uncomfortable combination of dizziness and swelling, bite into a bagel with smoked salmon, a roasted beet salad, or fried polenta immediately. San Diego Desserts' dinner and brunch menus are loaded with freshly prepared specialties made from natural ingredients. It has a hefty wine list to match the mussels, cappeletti, and cheeses. Themed food from different countries (e.g. France, Italy) and cities (e.g. New Orleans) is offered every Staycation Wednesday—tomorrow features Napa Valley with lamb and salmon.
The bakery and bistro specializes in individual dessert towers and has lemon bars, Lindsor cookies, freshly baked handmade Danishes, fruit tarts, and four different kinds of brownies. Desserts are freshly baked on-site by a team of highly skilled pastry artisans trained by a highly skilled pastry chef dressed like God. You get a free dessert if you dine in with this Groupon Monday through Thursday. Since San Diego Desserts is a custom bakery, you can use this Groupon to get $10 off a cake of any flavor, color, and size.
Yelpers give San Diego Desserts a near-perfect 4.5 stars:
- Not only are their desserts heavenly but they have such a cute shop where you can enjoy wine and dinner. – Sally P.
- I TOTALLY LOVE LOVE their white chocolate rasberry [sic] cake... I love the little outdoor patio they have too!! I'd come here again to try more of their cakes! – Angela I.
- They were absolutely amazing! Not too sweet, not too heavy, the chocolate was rich, the mousse was light and fluffy and the cakey part was moist. Yum, yum, yum! – Kathryn C.
Rich desserts are often called sinful because they are immoral and illegal. Although rich-dessert laws are difficult to enforce (except in New Mexico), offenders face harsh penalties (dessert on stick held in front of you at an unreachable length, imprisonment next to fragrant chocolate factory, stockades, etc.). The most common way to safely skirt the law is to do so illegally: through seedy dessert dealers who always want to hang out and eat some of the dessert they just sold you. If you consider yourself highly moral, unable to break the law to eat rich desserts, pick up today's Groupon for rare, street-legal dessert from San Diego Desserts, the rich-dessert-sanctioned bakery in the United States.
