Dessert place in Richmond Hill or Markham Area
I just came back from Brix in Richmond Hill (230 commerce valley drive east).. dessert platter was delicious.
the goodies offered:
Molten Chocolate Fondant w.Milanese vanilla ice cream
Crème brule duo, banana white chocolate and cinnamon-nutmeg spiced pumpkin
New York style cheese cake w. fresh blueberry compote
Assorted cookie plate, house biscotti, almond crisp and decadent chocolate
on top of that, I also ordered their Warm carrot cake w.toasted pecan caramel sauce
.. and yes, i ate it all myself ..lol.. (i have a HUGE sweet tooth)
i gave the staff so much of a shock that when i finished the 'sharing' platter by myself, they said it was on the house!!..wow.. gluttony does have its rewards sometimes..hahah
hope this helps :)
What about Caffe Demetre? It's not the most original option, but they have a vast array of desserts and make their yummy ice cream fresh daily. Their also open very late. They have a location in Markham and one that is opening soon (or perhaps has even opened) in Richmond Hill.
Here's the info for the Markham location with the link below. It has a patio too. :) Their menu includes decadent cake, ice cream crepes and waffles, fancy coffees, as well as healthier options like smoothies and fruit plates. Yum! I'm drooling just thinking about it. By the way, the website has the menu. Let us know what you decide and enjoy!

If you're looking for Chinese desserts, my favourite place is at Time Square along one of the sides (just to the right of the "main" entrance. Hung Fook Tong is the name. The only place that comes close to my favourite dessert place in HK (think that was called Hui Lau San).
If you're looking for non-Chinese, there's a Dimitri's just east of leslie on the north side in the place where all the chain restaurants are like Keg/Swiss Chalet/Alice Fazooli's etc.
