Dessert in Penn Quarter

Going to check out Proof this weekend for the b-day, but could only get in at 5:30. So I figure, after enjoying a meal and some wine at Proof, we'd walk around a bit and then get some dessert. Any suggestions in the area?

So far I've come up with:

PS7

IndeBleu

Central

Cafe Atlantico (just there a few weeks ago)

We are definitely into the more "fun and adventurous" dessert category, however I wouldn't say no to an outstanding and well executed straightforward dish either.

Thanks for the advice!

I don't think you can beat Zaytinya for fun and adventurous desserts, unless you go to Cafe Atlantico. Or Jaleo. Or Oyamel. Hmmm... ...but anyway, The Caucus Room used to have an absolutely wonderful coconut cake a few years back. (I only ate there once, but got that cake as carryout several times after.)

At Cafe Atlantico, I had the "Bizcocho templado de chocolate con banana." Part of the dessert was a chocolate flan that appeared to be ordinary chocolate pudding... except it had the most intense chocolate flavor I've ever experienced.

If chocolate's your thing, you won't be disappointed.

Bump. Same question, except in Georgetown.

In lieu of a full dinner, I want to do a "dessert crawl" with some friends -- starting with Dolcezza for gelato, followed by Thomas Sweet for ice cream, Georgetown Cupcake for, well, you know, and Sweetgreen for faux-Pinkberry. Any other destinations along the way that would be worth adding to the route?

And then what's a low key bar/lounge nearby to chill for drinks after we're hopped up on sugar?

You can always finish up in the lounge at Citronelle with drinks and a "Kit Kat" bar.

I don't know how late it's open in the evening, but if it's still open, you could stop for a few chocolates at Leonidas at 1531 Wisconsin Ave. Another possibility is sweet crepes at Cafe Bonaparte also on Wisconsin. A couple of months ago, I noticed another chocolate place on M street near Aditi and not too far from Georgetown Cupcake. Has anyone tried that place or remember the name?

Any dessert updates? In PQ or something closer to The Press Club? Am going to hang out with a college friend tonight and wanted some options...

Thanks.

Dessert at Co Co Sala isn't a bad place to grab dessert, though the bar might get loud. Or how about Cafe du Parc at the Willard.
