Dessert places in River North

My wife and I will be staying in the River North area in a few weeks. After dinner we like to take a walk and get a dessert or coffee/hot chocolate or something. Any recommendations? Especially that are open later.

If the weather's nice, Hood and Howell is a great place to have dessert outside. I also like Eno, which specializes in chocolate, wine and cheese. Both are right off Michigan Avenue. There is also the chocolate bar at the Peninsula, tho that is more of an event than a casual after dinner nibble. But they have music there too, which can be nice.

I'm really looking for something more like bakeries, cupcake/cookie type places or ice cream places. Things like that as opposed to restaurants that serve dessert.

It depends on how late your dinner is. Non restaurants are retail and will not be open late.

If you find yourselves eating out in Lincoln Park (which isn't a bad idea), Molly's Cupcakes is open until midnight on Fri/Sat and 10 pm other nights.

Sprinkles Cupcakes is open 'til nine. They're on Walton. Ghirardelli, mentioned earlier, would also totally fill the bill.
