Where are the places in the city that carry mini desserts. Not only cupcakes (but cupcakes are good too) but other things too.

      Financier carries a platter of assorted mini pastries and they are so pretty and delicious! There are mini eclair and chocolate tart and mini cheesecakes, etc. I think it is 16 pieces for about $22.

            Bruno Ravioli, a mini chain with several locations around town, sells mini versions of almost all the desserts they carry, including cannoli, napoleans, eclairs, cups of mousse. The cannoli are among the best I've had in Boston and NYC.

                  Check out Kyotofu. Incredible small desserts. A steady stream of people coming in just to pick them up to go.

                        The Bakery at Whole Foods also has a healthy selection of mini-desserts. Especially if you're looking for seasonal treats.
