Let's just say this bakery/cafe, located close by my home, is not helping my diet!
The baked goods are delicious and I really like the coffee too. Turns out they use Cafe Calibria coffee, local in San Diego. Excellent stuff!
I plan to try a little bit of everything, with time. Nice and casual setting, with remodeled interior and seating outside.

We arrived just three days after opening at their new location in La Jolla.Four of us went for breakfast. We had to order at the cash desk then choose a table,and wait for our food. Giving our order took some time as the cashier was new. Once seated the coffees arrived first, excellent cappuccino.Three had orange juice but one was forgotten. It eventually came. The food arrived at different times which was a little awkward. The waffles were very good, one guest had just a pastry and another the eggs with bacon. The cost was $75.00 for four, with tip which seemed a bit high. It's a pleasant place and I am sure it will settle down to be more efficient. We had to ask them to turn the rather loud musc down which they did at once.

There were five us and we all tried something different. Not a one was a disappointment. I love trying new bakeries and am so glad we didn't pass this one by. I wish I could have tried everything I wanted to, but I'd still be there.

This was recommended to me by a former guest of mine when I was a Concierge in Maine. From the outside it looks like the cutest cupcake and sweets shop, but also boasts some amazing breakfast. On the owner's recommended, I had the bacon, sunny side up egg and three cheese croissant with arugala. It was a a purely scrumptious mess! I wish I had a breakfast and desert place this good close to home. I also purchased a dozen assorted cupcakes for the office and quickly became everyone's best friend. If you do not have an appetite for a large cupcake, stick with the minis...they are just as great!

Staying at the Crystal Pier, we walked to the bakery to buy my 'Birthday' cake. We selected 3 regular cupcakes and we selected several of the minis. The cake was moist, flavors are intense and the icing was very good. I believe these cupcakes are better than the 'over rated' Sprinkles'. I would definitely make a special stop to buy cupcakes to take home if I found myself in the area. I would definitely recommend this bakery. The staff were very friendly and took pictures of me and my daughters to document my special birthday. This is a bakery only.
