I was there 2x during my stay and everything was wonderful! We took the Cuban on our plan trip and it was the perfect dinner while flying. So nice to use those extra calories on something worth eating 😊

We sought out Azucar because they catered the desserts at a friend's wedding. We're glad we trekked out to Ocean Beach. The baked goods extend from the simple to the sublime. I particularly enjoyed the Guava & cream cheese pastry. We'll definitely be back next...More

This small cafe in the heart of ocean Beach (OB) is amazing!! The scones melt in your mouth!! All are so good but the passion fruit or coconut blueberry are among the favorite eats. Go early because once they run out, your out of luck!!

We tried 3 kinds of scones, the Cuban coffee con Leche and the Cinco Leches... all so so yummy! Place is tiny, bright, beachy. Service friendly and fast.
