“It tastes like heaven on earth and just melts in your mouth!” said San Clemente High School senior Sophia Mains. 

Both Nick’s and South of Nick’s have other amazing dessert options on their menu, but the warm butter cake outshines them all.

“I think Nick’s butter cake is definitely the best dessert I have ever had. I order it ‘to go’ all the time because I like it so much!” said SCHS 2019 graduate Hanna Farnsworth.
