The name of this place is perfect. The desserts are over the top gorgeous, luscious, exciting, delicious and yes extraordinary. However, there is an extensive menu of soups, salads and sandwiches. So, while you could make a meal out of desserts alone, you could also...More

This place is extraordinary as per name, it does suites well. The ambience is perfect, the desserts they have to offer is heaven. The best part, every piece is unique and delicately garnish with real gold leaf. I felt royalty!

Extraordinary Desserts is obviously a hipster establishment with pretty much everyone there under 30 and a open, contemporary, crowded and very noisy environment. Service was awful. Their ordering is a bit confusing and they do not like to take time to explain it to you....More
