Long Island Dessert?

guavaman55 Feb 11, 2012 04:53 PM

My girlfriend wants to take me out for dessert on Valentine's Day. The present plan is Crumbs, but I'm looking for suggestions. It would have to be in Nassau or Western Suffolk, wheelchair accessible, have tables and be open in the afternoon. Any ideas?

    How about Caffe Portofino?

    For the desserts:

    It's in Northport, which is a pleasant little town.

      Almost an hour's drive from my house. Would like the place to be a little closer to home (Valley Stream.) Would also like more chocolate options. Could be a future lunch with friends option, however. They live in Huntington.

        If I lived in Valley Stream and I wanted a dessert venue with chocolate options I'd make a beeline for Itgen's! I realize that for a Valley Stream resident it may not be that exciting, but I don't think there's a better chocolate dessert on Long Island than Itgen's hot fudge sundae. There's also Chat Noir in RVC.

          It's been a while since I've been there, so I don't recall how wheelchair friendly it is. Unless it's something unique, though, ice cream is not what I'm after. Especially as I can get Phish Food in the supermarket freezer. May pop my head into Itgen's tomorrow, though.

      Cardinali Bakery in Syosset Village.
