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!

If baked goods are your downfall, this is the place to (literally) feed your vice. Pies, cakes, cheesecakes, cookies, brownies, ice cream... the only real problem is what to choose. Don't expect to find other types of food there - it's strictly desserts. It's a great place to take kids if you don't mind revving them up with a large... More

Fun and lively midtown spot for huge portions of cake and ice cream. Expect a line, but no one seems to mind.

Found this delectable diner when looking to waste some extra time in Sacramento. What a great place. They have numerous goodies, we chose the chocolate mousse and carrot cake and both were good. We visited on a Saturday night around 9:30 and then line was out the door, but well worth the wait. Service was great too.

I am literally a fat kid that loves cake. That being said, I have been going to Ricks for years and the cakes are all very decadent, rich, made with quality ingredients and fresh. The bonus is they have really good coffee. At the new location they have expanded the seating so you get the big soda fountain feel. It's... More

Who knows how many times I have been to Rick's... Once you begin your Rick's journey, be prepared to be addicted. Everything I've tried is amazing and my fitness goals will not deter me from eating there. Great place for everyone and open late to fulfill your late-night sweet tooth!

Charming decor, polite and nice staff, but the ice cream sundae was without taste. The cakes looked good, but unfortunately we shared a chocolate sundae! The taste was "sweet" no vanilla or chocolate taste!

Thank rassociate
