Mission: dessert

Posted by Katie Johnston Chase April 10, 2007 10:14 AM

After seeing Mike Daisey's "Invincible Summer" at Zero Arrow Theatre in Cambridge on Saturday night (it was fairly entertaining, though I did doze off a bit in the middle), I was hungry for dessert. We tried Finale -- which I've heard is overrated, but I really needed something sweet -- but there was a 40-minute wait for a table. So we headed toward home and stopped at Dali on Beacon Street, where a snotty hostess refused to give us a table because we weren't going to have an entire meal, even though it was 10:30 p.m. We waited in vain for a seat at the bar but soon gave up and drove to the 1369 Coffee House in Inman Square. And there, finally, we ate a piece of warm apple pie with a glass of mint tea. Bliss. But it took us almost an hour to find it. Which makes me wonder: Is there really a dearth of late-night dessert spots in Cambridge and Somerville, or do I just not know where to find them? If you have any suggestions, let me know.
