Hot chocolate fondant/"lava cake"/souffle, etc. at Toronto cafe or restaurant

Hi all,

Looking for the city's best offerings for this sort of cake - I'm probably mixing terminology here, but you probably know what I mean - made-to-order, served hot, liquidy chocolate gushes from the middle. My search is twofold.

1) I want to find a place where one person can sit down and order this and a coffee, preferably around late afternoon, without feeling out of place. Patio/outdoor seating is a plus. Good coffee is a plus.

2) The cake itself should be "good" - as in, the liquidy part shouldn't be too sweet, shouldn't be too runny but also should be more than just a softer, spongier heart of the cake. Gooey is a good word for it. The outside part should definitely be crusty, but not so much that the cake is dried out. Obviously I'm not a pastry expert, but I'd like to find a really tasty and well-executed cake.

Any leads?
