I live near Waterloo and would like to know about a good place to go out for pudding / dessert and coffee, quite late at night. Preferably somewhere nice and relaxed. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Jump on the N1, or have a brisk walk, and go to Bar Italia in Soho, is my entirely unhelpful advice. It's horribly overpriced, but amongst the best eat-in cakes in London, and the hot chocolate is amazing. Open all night.

Take a sofa in the bar at Roast. Sadly you have to watch the waiters who have just finished work getting drunk at the bar and it will cost you 15, but the desserts are generally very very good.

Easy one this for me, though not sure of the opening times.

Le Pain Quotidien

on the row of shops next to the royal festival hall, south bank. Coffee (and hot chocolate) very good along with loads of breads, cakes etc. However the chocolate bomb, is superb. Shop started in brussels which is when i first visited, then found out one had opened here and have been gradually putting on weight since.

Obviously I am biased because my husband works there, and I often eat there, but- the sticky toffee pudding at the Cut Bar in Waterloo is very moreish!

One phenomenon that doesn't seem to have kicked in here yet is the pudding restaurant. I've been to a couple in Chicago and the formula really works. Does anyone know of a specialist pudding restaurant in London? Patisseries don't count, good though they may be, and in any case they tend not to stay open late.

I would definitely go to a pudding restaurant. Pudding is the highlight of the meal; all other courses are just paving stones on the route to nirvana.

I would say that if this poster was going to head into Soho, then she could look in at Patisserie Valerie on Old Compton Street, or Maison Bateaux nearby - both are fantastique....

There really isn't anywhere round Waterloo, although last night at mine we devoured a delicious butterscotch and pecan steamed pudding with choccy ice-cream
Well.Just saying.
