This needs to be everywhere!

It's like an ice cream shop with toppings, only with rice pudding. A little on the pricey side, but servings are large enough to share.

Check this place out. Get the double scoop and enjoy two different flavors. I tried french toast and cheesecake. I loved both of them. The cheesecake finds a way to my heart always so this was a ace in the hole for me, but I have to say the french toast was almost equal. It's not good for ya, you... More

I am not a fan of rice pudding and I was actually not interested in trying this place... but my husband insisted and so we walked in... He ordered the butterscotch flavor and I ended up eating most of it... heaven... just heaven...

This place has been on my radar for a few years. I finally was able to visit. The place is clean and uncluttered. The staff will let you try any and all flavors. I recommend that you do to determine what you like best. I enjoyed all the flavors I tasted. I expected a few more off the wall flavors--all... More

True fact, I only eat rice pudding from two places, here and Sophia's in Buffalo NY. The options at this place are awesome and the humor is free Even after way too much Italian Food on Mulberry St (Little Italy) we always make room for this place Yummy!

We came to visit Rice to Riches tonight after reading all the good reviews on Tripadvisor, and everything looked really delicious. We were deciding what flavours to buy when we suddenly noticed that one of the employees (a blond woman with glasses) was picking her fingernails just above one of the toppings behind the counter. Shortly afterwards she started biting... More

I LOVE rice to riches. Best desert in NY in my opnion. Always worth a visit and it's just near the subway station and around a great area, in SOHO. Highly recommended.

Pretty average rice pudding, seems quite commercial. I was expecting a independent quirky shop after reading reviews. Signs are good to read but not a place I would recommend going out of your way for.

Rice to Riches is a must if you like milk puddings! It has a big variety of rice puddings. Reasonable prices and good service. Really an interesting and unique experience. Further, the neighborhood is also very nice.

This was my 6th visit and I felt I had to review this place. I rarely eat rice pudding but when I travel to NYC I make it a "must stop" . There is to much variety to list here but trust me you will not have an issue finding something you like. The "solo" size($8) and toping (additional $1.50)... More

Staying in Nolita

Neighborhood Profile
Despite being just off of busy Houston Street, Nolita maintains a low-key vibe that makes it a pleasant retreat in the heart of lower Manhattan. Short for “North of Little Italy,” Nolita was once considered to be part of Little Italy. Today, the neighborhood is popular with young fashionistas popping in and out of the chic independent boutiques that line Mulberry, Mott and Elizabeth Streets. In addition to shopping, there are cozy restaurants and sidewalk cafes serving everything from new-school Italian food to the world-famous cronuts. While small in size (Nolita stretches just a few blocks in each direction), it’s a great neighborhood to spend an afternoon people watching, window-shopping, and grabbing a bite to eat.
