Quite tasty, but sometimes a little bit awkward,,,

The place is very small but with nice atmosphere. The famous Dous'sant is very good but not amazing. The crepe layer cake and the chocolate chips cookies are good too. I tried, and didn't like, the Japanese desert.

This little dessert bar is an awesome experience. Homemade ice cream, five star service, and beer, wine, and champaign pairings. Chika herself made our dessert and served us. Have an open mind as the desserts are more like a delicious chemistry project than grandma's favorite recipe.

Chikalicious dessert bar is always fun and a great way to spend the afternoon if you're a sweet tooth. The desserts are wonderful and seasonal, and Chika's team is brilliant. Love the interior and the desserts, especially the fromage blanc cheesecake. Great place to take some friends and definitely try to get a bar table! This way you'll see the... More

I couldn't resist ordering two desserts. I can't remember the name of the first, it was kind of weird but nice all the same. The second dessert was a nutella cronut and it was divine. The guy working in there was really helpful in explaining which desserts were popular and what some of them were as they were quite unusual.... More

Went here to experience something new and it didn't disappoint. We loved the atmosphere and the desserts were amazing. The combination of the maitre d'/waiter who was wonderfully turned out and charming, the quiet efficiency and precision of the chef and sous chef right in front of you making these small pieces of art and the simple decor combined beautifully...

Small, limited working days (thurs to Sunday), owner prepared French desserts bar--with wine pairing! Enjoy the individually prepared treats that can only be found at Michelin 3 Stars restaurants. This is a true find and hidden gem in East Village! Heaven!

This is the first time I went to a dessert bar. It was interesting with lots of different desserts. We ordered a New York cheesecake, a molten lava with green tea ice cream, a chocolate sundae, and another green tea sundae. Everything was good and service was fast. It is a small place so even at 1030 it was pretty... More

"This review is for Dessert Club, ChikaLicious which is the Takeout version of the original dessert bar located right across the street at 204 East 10th Street." We ordered a chocolate cronut, cookie ice cream sandwich and two macroons and the total was almost $20, which I think is a little pricey for a takeout dessert. However, I think it... More

We joined my cousin at night for some dessert at her favorite spot, chikalicious in the east village. Dessert bar? (mind blown!) This whole experience was absolutely delightful! Backstory: chikalicious is owned by a japanese woman named chika and her husband (who wears bow ties)! For $16, you get a pre-fixe with an amuse, your choice of dessert, and assorted... More

Staying in East Village

Neighborhood Profile
East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village, which offers plenty of unique small businesses catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the old-time neighborhood feel that you can still experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to wander up and down the streets searching for the newest hip spot, or an old-school favorite. In the center of the neighborhood, Tompkins Square Park serves as a gathering point for the New Yorkers that call the East Village home. The people-watching here is hard to beat.
