Fodor's Review

The desserts are magnificent at this small, charming shop in the heart of La Jolla, where dessertier Michele Coulon confects wonders, using organic produce and imported chocolate. Snack on cookies, cupcakes, brownies, chocolate-dipped strawberries, and mini-desserts. Other irresistible treats found here are a chocolate-lovers’ Torte Lion Belge, pear-frangipane tart, and Marjolaine Torte with layers of meringue, chocolate ganache and buttercreams. Several gluten-free items usually are available, too. This is not just a place for dessert, however. Lunch is served Monday through Saturday (the store is open 9 am to 4 pm), and the simple menu includes quiche and salads.
