Hi -- On Christmas eve, after an early dinner at 231 Ellsworth and our candlelight service in San Mateo at 7:00, we will be heading in to SF for a fancy dessert and the "midnight mass" (it's at 11:00) at Grace Cathedral. Any good suggestions for a place we are likely to be able to get a great dessert without eating dinner? At a bar would be fine. I have read the recent thread about eating at the bar -- but just thought someone might have a specific recommendation for dessert, or what to avoid.
Close proximity to Grace Cathedral, or downtown, would be best -- we may park at Union Square and take the cable car up the hill.
Thanks very much for all your help, past and future,
