The orange/chocolate angel food cake at the Elegant Truffle is HANDS DOWN the best cake ever! I've never been much of a fan of angel food cake, but this one made me change my tune--it is above and beyond outstanding. I've tried several of the desserts from the Elegant Truffle, and Jennifer does a fabulous job with all of them. She clearly uses only the freshest, highest quality ingredients, and when you're a self-proclaimed chocoholic like myself, you can certainly tell the difference. The chocolate-covered strawberries are simply decadent, and I have yet to sample the truffles...however I would venture to say that they are just as delectable as everything else in the shop. So next time you're in Point Loma, be sure to stop by the Elegant Truffle and grab a slice of the chocolate orange angel food cake, take a stroll down Shelter Island, and enjoy a dessert picnic with a view of the bay. San Diego just doesn't get much better than this!
