Heaven Sent totally messed up my wedding cake, by missing 5 of 9 points in the contract for services (even after they had to come back to "fix" the cake once delivered). While the cake itself tasted delicious (many compliments on the taste), the appearance of the cake was amateurish at best. When I paid the final installment a few days before the wedding, I was told that it was a good thing that I placed my order so early as they were "slammed" the day my cake was to be delivered. Not what one wants to hear a few days before their wedding . . . it seems that they over-promised and under-delivered. I still get angry everytime I see a picture of my wedding cake - thank goodness for photoshop. I will not go back or recommend since there are so many good bakeries in San Diego.

I've only had one thing from here, but it was really good. I've heard this place isn't that great, but my experience was really pleasant and its in a fun area of north park to have dessert and do a little shopping.

1 star for the nice clean upscale ambience 1 star for the friendly staff As for quality and afford ability zero stars. This place is way overpriced for what they offer. It's a coffee shop with deserts and the coffee is very sub par and deserts are stale, bland and bought from another store seemingly a day before put out. It seems like the place is trying to be better than Starbucks without the quality menu and a higher price tag. Honestly I'd rather go to Starbucks than trek all the way here. No other redeeming qualities either, like live music or poetry readings or acting as a local art gallery or something to give it that North Park feel. The place has some potential but think they jumped the gun without thinking it through first.

I visited this place when it first opened and was the only customer there at the time. The dessert was perfect, the coffee was perfect, and the seat in the window was perfect. The only thing I wished for was sidewalk seating, since it is located right in the heart of North Park. Perfect for people watching!

The desserts are heaven sent but the customer service is to die for. Cute little place to sit down over coffee and some delicious desserts. Great selection.
