Popular Place for Dessert (Cake!)

Rick's Dessert Diner relocated just a block over (J instead of K Street) and offers much more indoor and outdoor dining space. It is still busy with a line all the time (moves quickly). Standing in line gives you time to decide what cake to enjoy. The choices of cakes and pies can overwhelm. We... read 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

Visited Rick's over the weekend. Well - me, my friend, and approximately 100 other people with a sweet tooth! The line was quite long, and only got longer. The array of desserts, especially the cakes, looked beautiful in the display cases. It was my first visit and I went with something safe - a large slice of carrot cake. The... More

So many mouth watering options to choose from. Between chocolate, fruit and creams there is a dessert for everyone's taste. I'm fond of the prep cream cake and it's become my staple when I visit 2 or 3 times a year. Nothing bad to be said about this place. The staff is awesome as well.

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.
