Dessert Destination in Westchester / Fairfield County

Looking for a great dessert place to head to after a movie in Port Chester.
Can be Lower Westchester or Fairfield County.

I know in NYC this would be such an easy search. But in Westchester... I can't seem to find any places that are open at 10:30pm on a Saturday nite and have worthwhile desserts.

I've already checked Tarry Lodge & Willet House.

Hoping to get some other suggestions where a few couples can go to have dessert & coffee. Thanks!!!

  1. Most independently run dessert places close very early - way before 10:30. Forgive my chain suggestions, but the Yard House in Yonkers (Ridge Hill) is open late and has decent desserts. Also, if you're willing to go to White Plains, maybe chocolate fondue at the Melting Pot? Definitely fun with a group.

      We love the Yard House. My husband & son are vegetarians and really enjoy their big selection of fake "meat" entrees. They're so easy to please!! : )

      My kids also love Melting Pot.

      Good choices. Thanks!!!

    2. That's a tough one. La Creperie Cafe in PC is good, but it looks like they close too early. Maybe you could encourage them to do an after-the-show special. Also, don't know what the hours of Paleteria Fernandez on Main Street are. Bar Taco has great churros, so that might be an option, and they are open late. Also, some say the food at Cafe Mirage has gone down hill, but I do know they have fantastic bread pudding. You can get Toll House Pie at the (dated) Cobble Stone in Purchase - they serve until midnight. Good luck.

        We love Bartaco. I didn't even realize that they might have desserts. Will check it out.

        Thanks so much!!!

      2. If the dylan lounge at x2o is open that late I'm sure you could go for dessert and after dinner drinks. Their desserts are fancy and tasty.

          X20 is a great idea! Their food is terrific. I will look into how late they are open.

          Thanks so much!!

        2. What about the J- House hotel or L'Escale in Greenwich?

            MRS - I'm not familiar with either of those suggestions.
            I will look into them. Thanks so much!!!

              Yup J-House hotel has a place called the Chocolate Lab that could definitely work for dessert. I've looked inside but haven't eaten so I can't vouch for the food but the atmosphere is cute. Chocolpologie in Stamford is a great suggestion above.

            2. I cannot vouch for any of these (hopefully other chowhounders will weigh in), but what about one of the wine bars in Larchmont or Mamaroneck? They're usually open a little later than the restaurants in the area.

     (has a Groupon right now

              Or in New Rochelle:

              I just re-read your original request, and see that you were interested in coffee with your dessert rather than these may not exactly work (maybe they also have coffee?), but I thought I would through them out there anyway.
