Dessert at Cafe Zuchero
1731 India St
San Diego, CA 92101
When my cousin that I hadn't seen for 10 years was visiting a few weeks ago, she told me she loved desserts and enjoyed baking. I had no idea we had so much in common. I thought I would take her to some of the great dessert places in San Diego.
Then she told me that her favorite dessert was tiramisu. While I enjoy tiramisu, it's never been a dessert that I'm craving and so I've never really bothered to try tiramisu at the many dessert places I've been to. The only one I knew that had pretty good tiramisu was Cafe Zuchero.
For those who have not been to Cafe Zuchero, it's a small Italian restaurant, located in Little Italy. They have a nice bakery section in the restaurant, where they have fresh gelato, and various other Italian desserts. You can dine in the restaurant, or you can just stop in for dessert and they have plenty some seating outside and inside.

On this particular night, this is a sample of what was being offered:
That night we got a pistachio gelato, a three layer chocolate mousse, a giant chocolate covered strawberry, an opera cake, a creme brulee, and of course, the tiramisu. The only one I didn't like much was the opera cake which I thought was dry. I thought the tiramisu was pretty good. Light and not too rich. Everything tasted pretty good. My cousin really enjoyed this place and even brought some desserts back.
It was dark and I was in a rush, so I didn't snap many pictures of our desserts. Unfortunately, some of my shots came out a bit blurry.
