Any suggestions? Thank you!

  1. chocolate room on 5th ave in Park Slope. Sweet Melissa is also a nice place to sit in the backyard with a piece of cake.

    1. There's also the Cocoa Bar on 7th Ave if you're in that end of the nabe. Not as good as the Choco Room on 5th, which rocks.

      And Jacques Torres in Dumbo.

        Not only is the Cocoa Bar not as good -- it's pretty bad.

      2. Not exactly a dessert place, but T'ost (on Seventh Ave. near 14th Street or thereabouts) had a couple of fabulous desserts: a lavendar panna cotta and a dessert (don't know if it has a specific name) that features a disk of mascarpone cheese, topped with fresh raspberries and chestnut honey. I think they also have dessert wines.

        1. Actually, the Park Cafe on 7th Avenue between Union and Berkeley has a great cakes and pies. I mean they're standard like banana cream pie, chocolate cream pie and an awesoume chocolate layer cake with cherries, but they're not that standard "icing made with crappy lard" crap. They're made by some Greek baker that delivers to the restaurant. The coffee and tea isn't that bad either.

          1. It is possible to have a romantic wonderful dessert with a great view at RIVER CAFE.

            They welcome Dessert only customers and have a lovely dessert menu. Same ambiance, same thrilling setting, all for a fraction of the price of dinner.
