late night cake?

I can't vouch for fluffiness or high quality desserts, but Richtree (formerly Marché) is open fairly late. I don't know if they do this any more, but they used to drop their prices on their desserts after 11pm or something like that.

Allens on the Danforth- Disgusting food, service

I have only been to Allen's once. It was during their "steak festival" in Jan/Feb this year. It was quite busy, but the food was well worth the wait. There were 5 of us, we all ordered steaks from this ridiculously long list. We also ordered 5 different side dishes and shared them. I remember that the sweet potato fries were awesome.
