My sweet tooth was in heaven. #2 They are open late which makes it a great option for after a club or late nite show or just simply for a... More

I love this place. Retro theme and a dessert for everyone. They even have flour less cake that is amazing.

Look, let's be real about the fact that because the place is so popular you will wait in line. The reason the place is so popular is because the food is tremendous. The variety is a dessert lovers dream. The portions are shareable, and it is always, always worth the wait. The new location is wonderful. On J street can't... More

This place is a must for any kind of dessert you are craving. Made fresh daily and very large portions. There is a line out the door but that's half the fun. You will be people-watching and need to move slowly in line in order for you to get enough time to see all of the desserts and make your... More

Excellent desserts. Good selection of pie, not often seen at most bakeries. Have not visited their new locations which is much larger. The old location got very crowded on weekend nights.

Went to the new and "approved" Rick's diner. Place is bigger to handle the crowds, allegedly. They don't handle crowds well. It was better when they were in the small place. At least there, the employees felt they had to work. Now, they think they can take their time. Show up, long line, per usual. Wait 20 minutes, 2 customers... More

Honestly the best white cake I have ever had, and we went at 12 in the morning they close at 1am. The atmosphere is like a old time diner. They only have desserts and drinks including beers and wine. My husband had a chocolate shake said it was fantastic. I'm hooked I will be back.

We love walking down to Rick's dessert diner following a play at Capital Stage. Amazing cakes and pie to choose from. Add a warm cup of coffee and in five minutes you are in

Eating in downtown Sacramento, this is the place to have dessert. Lots of variety of cakes, pies, and pastry's which are my favorite. Chocolate Éclair melts in your mouth. Now in a new location with lots of seating inside and out on corner of J and 23rd (I think). Did I mention it is just a fun place to go,... More
