Best after dinner dessert place in RALEIGH?

Any suggestions for a place to go after dinner in Raleigh for some dessert - somewhere with an intimate atmosphere, with great desserts, (and maybe wines)?

    You will no doubt get more responses if you are more specific as to where in the South you are.

        I didn't know that Hereghty's served wine! I was going to suggest Helio's, the coffee shop on Glenwood South. That fits the bill, does it not? (Atmosphere, good dessert, great coffee - and wine!)

          Yes, Hereghty's has wine and beer. And I didn't know Helios had desserts. I like their coffee, but think their pastry selection in the morning to be just so-so. Do they bring more in at night? I can tell you that Hereghty's desserts are incredible. Plus, Hereghty's has a quieter, more upscale atmosphere.
