Top SugarBomber Picks


Eclipse Chocolat

2121 El Cajon Blvd, San Diego, CA 92104

SEA SALT CARAMEL CUPCAKE: "The tasty combo of sea salt and caramel is no secret anymore, but when you dollop a chunk of those perfectly paired flavors inside a chocolate cupcake, well, it definitely takes the sweet/salt flavor contrast to a new level." - Erin Chambers, City Editor


Mystic Mocha

2105 Mission Ave, San Diego, CA 92116

WALNUT CAYENNE BROWNIE: "It's the perfect combo of spicy and sweet with the chocolate brownie, cayenne pepper and the buttery, nutty walnut chunks." - Erin Chambers, City Editor


Lalo's Tacos Etc

1266 University Ave, San Diego, CA 92103

BANUELOS: "These are not your ordinary cinnamon-sugar-coated tortilla chips. Lalo's coats the chips in ooey-gooey honey and then dusts them with cinnamon & sugar, so every last bit sticks. Yum. Yum. Yum." - Erin Chambers, City Editor


Heaven Sent

3001 University Ave, San Diego, CA 92104

FALL IN LOVE CHOCOLATE LAVA CAKE: "It's like a sweet piece of fine art. A silky chocolate ooze falls into the center of the cake, and then the hole is filled with rich, thick vanilla butter cream. Throw on a few blackberries and a pink heart for garnish, and this is one tasty, complex love story." - Erin Chambers, City Editor


Panchita's Bakery

2519 C St, San Diego, CA 92102

EMPANADA DE CAJETA: "I have one word for you...cajeta. Also known as dulce de leche, Panchita's fills a light pastry shell with a healthy amount of cajeta. It's not healthy, it's almost unreasonable, but it's perfect for those with a big sweet tooth. Panchita's has tons of great pastries, so stop by and gorge!" - Moowiesqrd, Adventures Of An Amateur Foodie
