This place was not what I expected. I thought it would be a dessert place with tables and chairs. It's not, it is like a take out pizza joint with no tables just a standing counter. That being said, I was not disappointed. The hubby and I got the following: Crack Pie, Grasshopper Pie, Candy Bar pie, Compost Cookie, Cereal... More

pork buns to go, ready in 5 minutes- yum! Just like the buns at their noodle bar but faster and to go! We also tried the crack pie because we heard it was the east coast version of LA Pie Hole's maple custard pie. Although tasty, it was more of a candy bar consistency. Maple custard at Pie Hole is...

As some of you may have gathered, I am not a foodie. My tastes in food are pretty humble as opposed to my taste in design. A luxurious meal for me is a bucket of Kentucky's Fried Chicken or a microwave dinner from 711. If you give me a lifetime supply of 99cent instant noodles, I'll probably marry you. Anyway,... More

So, after supper at Cafe Orlin we walked a few blocks to have dessert here. One of our party has been here before and, at her recommendation, I got the Crack Pie - Whooie! I mean it is apparently sugar and butter in a crust - they have the recipe on the website - but it was really good. As... More

We stopped at the to-go window late and picked up about one of each offering. The crack pie was simply to die for and blew the rest away! Wish I had gotten two slices-outstanding!

I had high expectations but this place could be a dessert place anywhere. I found the flavors either totally strange and unappetizing (the ice cream) or totally common and overly sweet (the cookies). I really wanted to like this place! Also was kind of dirty inside. Not recommended.

I was in New York for a week but already knew about this foodie-famous place - so it was a must visit. I had the salted pistachio ice cream with cornflake crunch topping and was completely blown away by the very unusual but incredibly delicious flavours. Unbelievably good! I also took away a piece of Crack Pie. When eating it... More
