"Cafe Gourmand": what is it?

For few years now there has been a new concept for dessert in many french restaurants. It is called "Cafe Gourmand" which means something like "Gourmet Coffee". Each time I have the opportunity to eat in a french restaurant which has it on the menu, I order it when it's time for dessert!
But what is it exactly?
It is composed of a cup of coffee (espresso usually) and few mini desserts such as pie, tart, ice cream scoop, brownie, macaroon, dessert in a glass cup, .... everything is possible as long as at least 3 mini desserts are served with the cup of coffee.

Here are few pictures of the "Cafe Gourmand" I tried:
