This is one place where you really want to have your cake and eat it too! Delicious French cakes so delicately made and decorated that will immediately awaken your carnal cravings with every bite. Definitely must try the Elby cake which is a chocolate cake layered with creamy milk, dark and white chocolate - I m probably not doing it justice with my description. Take one bite and I can almost guarantee that you will be tempted not to share it with anyone and you will succumb to that temptation. IMHO about the best chocolate cake ever. Other cakes are great as well - strawberry short cake, out of this world tiramisu, Mont Blanc, mistral, cheese cake soufflé, etc and oh, not forgetting the sumptuous fruit tarts.

By the way, even though the owner/baker is a Japanese gentleman, his craft and skills are undeniably French, so buy and enjoy his handiworks with confidence. He needs about 24 hours advanced notice for special orders.

Sage is one of my favourite cake shops in San Diego. They are Japanese style bakers. So every slice of cake or pastries are meticulously made, cut and wrapped. I love their chocolate mousse cake. The cakes are not cheap but well worth it. You can also get some coffee and eat a slice of cake there.

I have been coming here for (at least) 10 years. Their cakes (slices or whole) are beyond belief. They are delicate, yet dense and flavorful.

I've been to many French bakeries in San Diego. Some are good, though predictable. Others are forgettable.

Sage is unforgettable. I still remember the taste weeks later. Be prepared to be surprised.
