When I need somethin Sweet!

Ricks is a must see in midtown. Cakes, Pies, Ice Creme and more. Atmosphere is very cool. Many,many choices, dont be intimidated by the line. The line is part of the fun.... If your in a bad mood, one look in the dessert window and you become a kid again. Mommy!!!!!!

Everything we got was perfect! The caramel Napoleon is a must try, I've been craving it ever since I had it there. The cakes, pies, and mousse are all amazing and was well worth the quick waiting line.

We went looking for a place that had desserts. I had heard about this place but I forgot about it until we saw it. We got inside and Wow! They recently moved from their old location, so everything looked new. It's decorated as an old time Diner. The line was a little long and the prices, a little high but... More

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, and I'm... 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.
