death by chocolate bites dirty smelly surrey ass....that is the biggest shit hole if you're looking for decent dessert.
most of their desserts are pre-frozen and are assembled by a HS kid with absolutely no knowledge of art.

i would reccomend BONTON; sweet obsession; thomas haas or as a last resort, true confection..

The Sweet Spot Bakery in Steveston:
http://www.urbanspoon.com/r/14/15607...akery-Richmond
It's more of a to-go dessert and pastry place (frozen French-style soups and meals are available, haven't tried them) but there are 4-5 stools if you want to sit and eat.

Here are some I tried a couple months ago: White chocolate with mango jelly, pistachio _____, chocolate mousse with sour raspberry, chocolate dome with cherries, fruit tart with custard

I liked them. The chocolate cakes were rich and not overly sweet, and the pistachio cake was... unique. Each is around $4 iirc.

Dont go to sweet revenge. Bad service and not worth your money when there are many better places to try.

What's wrong with Sweet Revenge? It's close to where I live and I always found it to be pretty good, the Apple Pie is
