Have been to and enjoyed a dessert-only restaurant in Boston called Finale, which is open late and features dessert tasting menus and a wide selection of dessert wines. Is there anything similar in the SF Bay area?
I know exactly what you're talking about...they have one in San Diego called "Extraordinary Desserts", but can't think of anywhere that serves SOLELY desserts in SF that is comparable. I can think of a couple with notable dessert menus. Stella Pastry is my all time favorite dessert place, but mostly because I love Italian desserts, and they are open late. No wine though.

Brick - CLOSED, reopening as Fly

I don't think that trend has hit SF yet.
We have a lot of bubble tea shops with funny Hong Kong desserts.
2239 Market Street
Just above Castro Street
When you're driving down market it's on the left side with a bright blue neon sign.
The cakes and pies are fantabulosa and they are open at least until midnight.
They also have extra large cups of very good coffee
