Are you making a specialty food?

bakeries or restaurants for dessert in the evening?

I was just looking at Philly dessert threads and noticed that most of the discussions are two or more years old, so I thought I would start a new one. I'm wondering what places would you recommend for a sit down dessert on a Friday night. A friend just asked me for recommendations, and I realized that many of my favorite dessert options aren't available in the evening.

      For a classic dessert, I like Parc:

        I'd suggest these restaurants with great desserts and bars where you can sit down and just order dessert:


        And of course, there's always Capogiro.

          Farmicia on 3rd St is another.

          I used to like La Golosa (formerly Dessert). Does anyone know if anything replaced it?

            Nothing yet (well at least a month back when I walked by)...
