San Diego's Best Dessert Restaurant

We know how important it is to show love for our early birds and night owls. Regardless if it is breakfast, lunch, or dinner, our indulgent treats can complete any meal and are perfect on their own too. For our night owls, we know that something sweet with a nightcap works wanders before some late night dancing. The same goes for our early birds in need of a sweet remedy before heading home and hitting the sack.

Amazing? Epic? Extraordinary? Let Us Know

Cafe 21 desserts are made to impress, so please do provide your feedback and let us know what desserts deserve "wow this is amazing" status.

We can't wait to hear your sweet feedback!

Cafe 21 is committed to sustainability and a true farm-to-table experience. We work with the best ingredients from locally grown produce, hormone-free grass fed meat, wild seafood, and antibiotic-free Mary's Free Range Chickens. We partner with local organic Tom King Farm, to bring you the freshest, local, seasonal, and organic produce. We love hand making our own sourdough bread, using organic flour and a very special starter named Lola. We make all our food from scratch, with love. *Please inform us of any allergies you may have. As delicious as it may be, consuming raw or undercooked meats, poultry, seafood, shellfish or eggs may increase your risk of foodborne illness.*

Please note that our menu is seasonal and prices as well as menu items are subject to change. We do our best to keep the most current menu updated and the most correct version of our menu is directly on our site.
