Hi Hounds. I'll be visiting from DC. Any recommendations for a good desert break on Sunday afternoon? I went to the Naked Chocolate Cafe once and loved it, anything in that vein would be exciting. Thanks!

        I second Capogiro, but also enjoy Philly Cupcake at 12th and Chestnut, and the new Garces Trading Company on Locust between 11th and 12th had some good looking desserts/pastries in the case today.

          This. They also have awesome drinking chocolate if you want something warm. Don't feel bad sampling all the gelato flavors, and then just getting hot drinks.

          The polenta budino with gianduia mousse and candied hazelnuts at Osteria is the best dessert ever created by man. And the chocolate espresso cake with cappuccino gelato is really good, too.

              Thank you everyone! I went to capogiro and it was yummy. Surprisingly light. They have tahini gelato - first time for me!
