Attended the Milk Bar for dessert after eating a phenomenal meal at the Momofuku Ssam Bar across the road. Love, love, love this place! Have never tasted anything like the crack pie, but clearly the name comes from the fact that it is so addictive. Also loved that there was plenty of merchandise that you can buy to take home... More

My friend and I finally went to Momofuku after we heard such great things about it. We each got a cereal soft serve and split three of the cake truffles. Everything was incredible (not overhyped in my opinion, although I was hesitant at first), but the employees couldn't have been ruder and I was surprised to see that there was... More

Had a soft serve and a tiny milkshake, all for $11. Service was lacking and staff wasn't very responsive or welcoming. Blah whatever.. Soft serve was ok but nothing special. Had the blueberry and miso milkshake...disappointing to say the least. Overall I don't recommend this place.

Good desert, but a tad overhyped. The store is a tony counter with no where to sit, though there are some nearby benches. The menu is also small and includes mostly desserts. The crack pie was very good and unique with a Japanese twist on pie, though at $5, a bit small. Good, but nothing to rave about.

On my search to find the best chocolate chip cookies in NYC, this place ranked #7. That's pretty darn good...

Last year we tried this place based on the hype, and it was ok. This year, we decided to try in again, and I just don't get it. The crack pie is good, but not even in the top 100 things I've tried. The cookies, are well, they are just ok. I know he is a well renown chef, and... More

We went to try the cereal milk flavored ice cream. It tastes as it sounds. I wouldn't go out of my way to try it.

I live in the neighborhood so have been here a handful of times. Momofoku's Milk bar is a great spot for an after dinner desert, whether that may be a cookie or their famous and delicious cereal milk ice cream. they also carry coffee, but only espresso drinks (as in no drip coffee, so americano may be your go-to. this...

After dinner, a pick-me-up, or an afternoon snack, whenever we are in NYC - Milk Bar always lands on our itinerary. Get a variety of cookies (compost cookies!) to bring back for friends (or for yourself) and my wife loves their cereal milk soft serve!

This location is a walk-up store. Full menu as the other locations. We ordered a slice of Crack Pie. It was small. NO WORRIES though, it was just the right amount! I understand why it's called Crack Pie (you want more, and more, and more, and more...)!
