Karen Krasne opened Extraordinary desserts in 1998, and since then she has been tempting San Diegan residents with her delectable and amazing desserts! Trained at Cordon Bleu in Paris, her treats are made with the best ingredients and not only look amazing on the shelf, but taste amazing as well.

From the moment I walked in I was mesmerized by the selection of yummy pastries! The confections are inspired by Karen’s travels to exotic parts of  the world and change on a daily basis.
