Dessert in Baltimore?

Fellow hounder from MSP will meet my sister (from DC) in Baltimore. She has both a sweet tooth and deep pockets. Staying downtown. Dessert need not be in the same place as dinner.

    Can't personally make this recommendation, but have heard that Wit and Wisdon in the Four Seasons Hotel has amazing desserts. I'm sure the other Chowhounders will lead you in the right direction.

    Some posters will suggest that you head over to Little Italy to Vaccarro's bakery.

    I've also seen recommendations-if this is your "thing"--drinks (think dessert drinks) at the B&O Brasserie. The bartender is reportedly a great mixologist and can probably concoct something decadent--perhaps the restaurant can supply one of their desserts. FoiGras

      I also can't personally make this recommendation, but you can look up Woodberry Kitchen for dessert.

        Wit & Wisdom's desserts are excellent. I also like Blue Hill Tavern for dessert.

          The desserts at Henningers Tavern aren't fancy but they are delicious!

            I've had excellent dessert at Brewer's Art.

              Thanks folks! We ended up at Wit and Wisdom late at night and running in from the rain. The folks took the four of us homely wet dogs and gave us dessert in the bar. They were reluctant at first, but we pulled the "chowhounds sent us here" and even though we were an unseemly group, they took us in and made it worth the trip. The rhubarb dessert and dark chocolate/peanut butter were to DIE for. And being from MSP the rhubarb dessert needs to be of top quality. The other two dishes (multitudinous layers of too much for me to remember and hazelnut hoo-ha which I didn't taste due to nuts) pleased the others in the group. Once again, though - props to the place for taking street urchins like us and doing it up right!

                Woodberry Kitchen, Wit & Wisdom, and Charleston are my picks for Baltimore desserts. The desserts are fantastic and well-presented and they have some lovely coffee drinks to order with dessert. Try the Baltimore Bar at Wit & Wisdom.
