Bakery in North San Diego
I need a bakery in North County San Diego (coastal) for an adult birthday cake. Any suggestions? Tried VG's and was not too impressed. Thanks!
I don't know how far North you are, but Champagne Bakery (Del Mar, Encinitas (near RSF)) has great adult tastebud style cakes. The Cake Lady in La Jolla also has great baked goods. Although my hands down pick for best cake in the county (and I'd argue the country) is Extraordinary Desserts (locations downtown and in Hillcrest). I think I've tried at least seven different varities...and would fly back to San Diego just for a piece of their cake!
I agree about the French Bakery in Carlsbad. I enjoyed some of their stuff this morning. This place never fails.
Le Rendez-Vous in the Ralph's shopping center (southeast corner of Oceanside and College Blvds.) is terrific; their cakes and pastries are wonderful, brioche and croissants, too, and the baguettes are outstanding. It's owned and run by a really darling Hmong couple. Check it out!

i second champagne, their fruit tart is especially lovely. also, i've had great luck with the bakery at whole foods market. the lemon raspberry tart is wonderful.
i know extraordinary desserts always gets a few votes but their cakes are too cloyingly sweet for my taste.
