Desserts so Light it Won't Fill you Up

Having visited the fancier Dessert Bar across the street, we decided to give this a try after having dinner at our favorite nearby curry spot. The place is small - only seats about 10. Ordered the Green Tea Yuzu Mille Crepe cake for $7, Plain Dough 'Sant for $4.59 and coffee for $2.25... read more

We tried several cakes, a doug-saint, crepe-layercake with vanilla and the one with yasmine and honey, some small cakes with strawberry shortcake and one with tiramisu. The crepe-layercakes were my favorites, but all was good. The coffee was really good and the staff were very friendly and helpful.

I have now visited ChikaLicious Dessert Bar 4 times. Each time is like unwrapping a gift, little surprises waiting to be revealed. The amuse was earl grey panacotta with honey dew melon sorbet. The tastes separate were wonderful but together were amazing. I chose for my "main" Gooseberries with orange creme fraiche on crispy kataifi and vanilla sweet corn sorbet.... More

This was a terrific dessert experience! The hubby has been wanting to go to ChickaLicious Dessert Bar to try the Fromage Blanc since seeing it on the "Best Thing I Ever Ate" on one of the food channels. We had to pick a mild evening because the restaurant is very tiny and you need to wait outside until there is... More

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

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.

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!

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.
