  1. 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.

    1. 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!

        1. re: zaintek

          9825 Yonge St. (Yonge and Harding Blvd intersection).

        2. 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 (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!! gluttony does have its rewards sometimes..hahah

          hope this helps :)

          1. Elgin Mills/Yonge area, Williams Coffee Pub has decent crepes, ice cream, etc.
