Sage French Cake

A hidden gem in the Kearny Mesa neighborhood of San Diego, Sage French Bakery is a Japanese Patisserie that hits the spot for those who like their cheesecake and desserts delish, but not too sweet. From tiramisu to cream pastries, Sage French Bakery is worth a visit. Repeat customers like the perfect size of each of the desserts as well s the light textures. Locals love how fresh the cakes are - you won't find a days-old dessert here. And while the interior doesn't lend itself to a romantic date, Sage is great for to-go orders. Unfortunately, Sage doesn't have a website, so call if you have any questions.
