I’m looking for a dessert and coffee place for a Monday night after dinner. One of the party doesn’t much go for “American" bakery options (cupcakes etc, finding them "too sweet and too stodgy") – and so we are looking more for the Italian, French , Central European style (less sweet, and more on the cream, chocolate, butter side of things) . We would have tried Cafe Sabarsky (although not sure if you can have have just dessert there - would it have to be Cafe Fleidermaus? And in any case it’s not open late enough on a Monday).
We’d be coming from Greenwich Village or West Village – but can take subway/ walk places.
Veniero's? Rocco's? Any advice appreciated! Thank you.
