Best place to take an Instagram photo of dessert with bad lighting

South Granville’s Cheesecake Etc. is known for its dim lighting and jazz-club ambiance. The moody atmosphere, paired with hushed conversations, is cozy and inviting. Everything goes well until your cheesecake with strawberry sauce or chocolate cheesecake drizzled with caramel sauce and toasted pecans arrives. How the hell do you take a photo of this masterpiece in this kind of lighting without bothering your neighbours (i.e., using your iPhone’s flashlight to brighten the dish)? It wouldn’t hurt to get a bit more light than a flickering tea candle—no?
