Special Dessert Place- Southern Maine?

Hello. My boyfriend's birthday is coming up next month on a Saturday(not around Valentine's Day) He has a committment from 6:00-8:30 p.m. but thought I'd take him out for a special birthday dessert. We live in Biddeford so we could go up to the Portland area, down toward Kennebunk or Portsmouth...

Do you have any ideas of a place we might go to celebrate. Of course, somewhere that they won't mind that we are "only" ordering dessert and drinks. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    A nice place to go would be Five Fifty-Five in Portland, ME (http://www.fivefifty-five.com/). It's a very nice restaurant that has recently opened up the Point Five lounge directly adjacent to the restaurant, which would be an ideal place to go for dessert/cheese plate and drinks.

      A few I would recommend in Portsmouth are The Dunaway Restaurant, located right across from Prescott Park, so you could take a stroll along the Piscataqua after dessert.

      Lindbergh's Crossing, tucked in along the waterfront, would be nice as well.

      After dessert you could head to the Portsmouth Brewery for a pint or two.

      MC Perkins Cove in Oguinquit has a spectacular view and looks like they open in February.

        Give the Kennebunk Inn a call, they serve dinner until 9 but probably could handle you for dessert & drinks a little later, maybe in the bar area?. After all, 8:30 dinner guests aren't ordering dessert until 9:30 or so. Check out their dessert menu online, it's not extensive, but it's good stuff! Fantastic hot chocolate! You could even spend the night at the inn!
