Chocolate cake, whoopie pies, pastries, donuts, torte, something called a Cocoa Doodle Do... You don't have to look far to find some insane desserts in Southern Maine. If you're looking for something sweet but light for your after dinner treat then get the heck out of here. No one cares about your diet, just eat what you want for dessert. May these photos provide some inspiration.

Torte at The Bar of Chocolate
