We will be eating dinner at Pio Pio and looking to take a walk somewhere in the area for dessert - any recommendations would be appreciated!

    Little Pie Company has my favorite desserts in the area - they close early-ish, though, so be sure to check what time they close before you go. Get the Mississippi Mud Pie with a scoop of Basset's Ice Cream, and you will think you have died and gone to dessert HEAVEN!

    Additionally, I think Marseille has some very nice, if less unbelievably delicious desserts. The beignets are very delish.

    But, really...Little Pie Company...YES!

      Go to Amy's Bread on 9th Avenue at 46th Street. They have very nice desserts--cakes, cupcakes, cookies. I especially like their devil's food cake with vanilla icing.

        Second AMy's Bread; also consider Kyotofu if you are willing to try more off the beaten path options. While their desserts are often soy-based, they are better than most standard desserts in the area! Their regular size chocolate cupcakes are particularly good, if you are willing to have a cupcake without frosting. (and if not, back to Amy's bread!)
        There's also Cafe Jolie, with all sorts of crepes as well as Mariebelle hot chocolate.

          Kyotofu hands down. I've had pies from LPC and everything from Amy's. They're good--nothing against them. But Kyotofu has elegant and innovative desserts that are really head and shoulders above the other places. It's a different scene; it's more expensive and it's a sit-down place. (But if you eat at Pio Pio first then hopefully you'll have money left over.)

          I don't think they have a seating area but Poseidon Bakery has really great Greek partries.
