THE place for dessert in Midtown

When I first looked at the menu, I was horrified by the prices, but this is not a "slice" of cake, it's a "slab" of cake -- you definitely get your money's worth. I've never had anything that wasn't yummy. I am from a family of professional bakers, related to one of the big names in the industry... read more

We tried Rick's Dessert Diner after hearing all the hype about it. We went on a weekend night and it was slightly crowded but the line moved quickly. The people cutting the desserts were friendly, the cashier-not so much. We ordered six different desserts/ice cream. While they were good and large portioned, we found the cakes and tortes to be...

My friend brought me here for dessert and I'm hooked! Glad I don't live here because I'd be at this place every day! We got the cream puff (biggest ever!) and the banana cream pie. So good!

We stopped by Ricks Diessert Diner for a piece of Espresso Cake. It was a little dry, but very tasty. The ice tea was pretty good as well. I may stop by again

When I went I got the Chocolate Mousse Cake and it was freaking delicious. I see a lot of people have seen it decline over the years, but I went in recently and I thought it was great. I guess it has its off days just like anything else.

Stopped by the new place - it's beautiful. There was a long line waiting to get served. Wife waited, got to the front and ordered two pieces of cake. She noticed the slices were smaller than before. Asked, and they said had to pay for the new place. Nice place.

You MUST go to Rick's dessert diner when you are in Sac. You may have to wait outside on the sidewalk to get in, but don't let that stop you; there is a good reason for the long line. The cakes and other desserts are amazing. They also have classic sodas and ice cream. We ordered the Death by Chocolate... More

Ricks ALWAYS has a line. Just get there early. He is opening a new and bigger location, so the diner on K street won't be there too much longer. I have never had a dessert that I did not enjoy. Perfect for dates, friend hangouts and especially great on a Saturday night.

This was to be the highlight of a 24 hour stop over in Sacramento after coming up from Carlsbad to look at a house. I read all of the reviews on Yelp and Urbanspoon and we were set on having a delicious slice of mocha and expresso cake. The girl behind the counter was very helpful and patient while we... More
