Such good sugary treats. Get the truffles and the crack pie. They are both extremely sweet and delicious. Cool place.

Got a birthday cake for a friend here - it was obviously the best cake! I found out about this place from some cookies I got at Madison Square Garden. Can't wait for another reason to celebrate so I can get a cake here!

So happy that we made it out to Momofuku Milk Bar before we left! I got the fruity cereal milk soft serve. Tasted like the milk left behind when you eat fruit loops! I'm definitely returning for more!

Definitely go there for a nice milk shake or a cookie. Really great! Just found this place by chance and will definitely go back there.

I cannot say crack pie enough. I even went to their crack-pie-making class at their main bakery and that was FUN. Cookies are delicious, too.

Friends told me about this amazing place and made me promise to go! I took my niece and sister for breakfast ice cream. They are still talking about it! What a fun concept and a great memory!

Got there around 3pm on Saturday and the line wasn't long, about 10 people in line. The Cereal Milk Soft Serve is very good and worth the hype. Must try!

I have had my Momofuki Milk Bar book for years and have been patiently waiting to come here! The first night we tried to come the line was about 30 people deep and I had a food baby the size of a watermelon and couldn't do anything but keep walking. I waited patiently for 2 days and made my way... More

Happened upon this place walking in NYC. Of course, I had to try their famous Cereal Milk soft serve with crunch. First, for a place that serves FUN food (and destination food at that), the staff seemed underwhelmed. The ice cream texture was good, but the flavor...not so much. It DID taste like cereal milk...and I guess I don't like... More

Was a little disappointed waited on line only to find out it was more of a store front and they were out of the cookie I wanted. But everyone else seemed to enjoy what they got.

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.
