blush desserts / kearny mesa

During Chicken Wing Week last month we tried to go to Common Theory. On a Friday night. I guess I forgot we live in a big metropolitan city because the wait time was over 45 minutes and I wasn’t willing to wait. Instead I dragged Jake and T over to Blush Desserts for a few desserts (for later, of course – we ended up just going to In-N-Out for dinner – mustard grilled burgers, awwww yeah). I’ve popped in here a few times but haven’t really taken photos or anything since I’m just now getting around to posting about it! Blush Desserts has tons of pretty macarons to choose from, plus cupcakes, cakes, bars, macaron ice cream sandwiches as well as coffees and teas.
