South Williamsburg isn't known for being a dessert haven, but if you ever find yourself by the Hewes Street stop on the J train, head to Moto for their warm date cake with toffee sauce and fresh whipped cream. Although the cake is perfectly moist and soft with a medium-light crumb, the buttery toffee sauce is what I remember best. I'd eat it by the spoonful if they'd let me (not that I asked; maybe they would've given me a bowl if I did) or, better yet, carry a flask everywhere I go if that were socially acceptable. My friends I sponged up every last bit of the sauce with the cake, just stopping short of licking the plate clean.
