Deseret eaters delight

Cake and pie galore! Also ice cream if your blood sugar isn't high enough! We hit this place the day after "pie day" so their inventory was not good on pie which is my favorite, but the cakes were plentiful and good. Very rich.

This place is highly ranked on Trip Advisor by Sacramento locals. Many of us eat with our eyes first and this place is definitely eye-licious. Lots of choices, cakes, pies, fruit and cream assortments and ice cream to accommodate . On my first visit I sampled the fruit basket cake, white cake with chocolate icing, pineapple coconut cake, lemon coconut... More

They have dozens of choices for dessert - cakes, pies, ice cream, cannoli, and cookies. Most of the portion sizes can easily be shared by two or three people. They also serve beer and wine in addition to all of the coffee drinks. My favorite is the banana cream pie. I think the desserts were better back in the day... More

After a great dinner, we headed on down and stuffed ourselves even more. How could we not, with only one night in Sacramento, not have something to eat at a Dessert Diner! There were several Gluten Free options available too!

If you're a dessert fan, then this is the place for you! They have everything from classic banana splits made with house-made ice cream flavors to red velvet cake and specialty cheese cakes and delicious fruit pies! It's styled like an old-time diner (think burger joint) but only serves desserts. Fun way to end the evening!

Probably the best banana cream pie I've ever had. It didn't have that artificial taste you get with cheaper pies. Huge slices of bananas decorate the top and they stayed yellow for over 4 hours. The pie is huge and serves 12 or more. I bought a cake in August, for an office celebration and everyone loved it. The cake... More

The line was very long but moved fast. We got up to the counter and easily saw what we wanted to order.. The marble cake was freaking amazing and the best I ever tasted. The Italian cheesecake was an interesting spin on classic cheesecake, there was a pie crust around it and there were hints of amaretto. We will definitely... More

Be prepared.. It might be a bit pricey but well worth it... OMG nothing but delectable at the very least. There must be 100 choices in the selection or you can make up your own concoction.

Great fantastic place to come for delicious desserts. We felt like children in a candy factory or shop. There were so many delicious desserts to choose from it was hard to pick. Next time we are in Sacramento we will have to come back. The wait was well worth it because the desserts are that good.

Where do I begin...this place is outstanding. So many deserts so little time. They have cakes, pies, cheesecakes, brownies. All so good. When I visit in Sac I always have to come here for desert. It is worth bringing your sweet tooth here.
