~SIXTH COURSE~, a truffle and dessert shop from owners Bridget Labus and Gianina Serrano that has been in the works since 2011, is now open in the Mission. The ladies are famous for their truffles, including a boozy line with offerings like one infused with St. George single-malt whiskey, though the shop has branched out and you can also find items like modern cakes and pastries. Yelpers mention a lemon thyme tart (yes please) and fruit verrines. Plus, they’ve got late-night hours for dessert after dinner. Sweet! Hours are Wed-Thu 2pm-10pm, Fri-Sat 3pm-11pm, Sun 12pm-6pm. 1544 15th St. at Capp, no phone.
