I love the desserts here, but please lower the prices a little. This place does a good business so I guess it proves many people are willing to pay for a dessert but I wish I could afford to treat myself more.

Having not been here for a while, we decided to have a date night out at Rick's. We arrived around 7 or 7:30 PM. The showcase was filled with delicious looking cakes and pies. We took the counter peoples' suggestions for our round of cakes. Unfortunately the cake parts were dried out and without much flavor and the fillings and... More

Stopped in for some birthday treats and what a selection. Picked up two slices of cake, and a cream puff

All the cakes look beautiful but don't taste like much. This was our second time trying dessert from Rick's. The first time, I ordered a cake for my husband's birthday. Nobody enjoyed the cake, and the frosting had no flavor. Years later, we just tried it again, each of us choosing a slice to go. The frosting again is heavy... More

Great selections of cakes, pies desserts and ice cream plus a bar, that's right a bar. Plan to stand in line to order then hunt for a table. This place is a 'must to go', very fun. It's like Disneyland.

I came to Rick's in January. My boyfriend (at the time) , his mother, his step dad and I all went there after a lovely dance. The staff was very patient with us and the food was great. The setting is beautiful and bright. It does tend to get crowded there but that's only because their place is amazing as... More

Rick's is the go-to place for fabulous desserts in Sacramento. Everything I've ever had there has been amazing- cakes, pies, brownies, etc. The best however, is their Napoleon, which is to die for.

I was so impressed by the bountiful variety of these decadent delights, it was difficult to choose which to indulge in. I tried the chocolate ribbon cake, and my wife had a piece of death by chocolate. They were both amazing! The line was long, but it moved quickly and was well worth the short wait. My only gripe is... More

We loved eating desserts here. Even though we had a large group of seven people, we found a comfortable table for all of us on a busy Friday evening. The place has a fun vibe, and the surrounding neighborhood was quaint and busy. The layered mocha cake I selected was delicious, as was my husband's tiramisu. Both desserts were the... More

Went for late night desserts with friends. I got a pecan praline hot fudge sundae. It was amazing (although it is hard to go wrong with dessert) and the atmosphere is just so cool. So well themed. Employees are either really really nice or not very nice at all. Great experience!
