dessert in the west village

  • 3

Figure since I was asking about before dinner drinks figure I'd ask about after dinner dessert. My friends wants to go to Sweet Revenge for dessert after dinner. My problem with there is that I read the cupcakes are huge. I prefer smaller cupcakes, not minis, but smaller. That way you can try two differant kinds.

For me, I'd be just as happy stopping into one of the gelato places in the village. But I also love fantastic really interesting desserts the kind that you just don't make a home.

Any place that we can wander into in the west village area and have a great dessert?

Thanks again for your help.

  1. Currently in love with Victory Garden. It's on the same street at Sweet Revenge, just a bit further east (closer to Bleecker than to 7th Avenue). It's goat's milk ice cream, all made with fresh ingredients, and served with fresh toppings. It definitely meets your criteria for interesting. :)

    (In addition to Sweet Revenge's cupcakes being large, I also don't think they're that great.)

      Thanks for the feedback. I've read mixed reviews on Sweet Revenge, I think more negatives than positives. I'll have to check out Victory Garden.

    2. How about Bosie Tea Parlor? Lots of cute and small French pastries you wouldn't make at home. I would call to check hours but I believe they're open until 10pm or 11pm.

      You could also walk to Otto and gelato coppetta at the bar. I'd also try grabbing bar seats at Fedora -- great ice cream sandwich there.
