“WOW!!!”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

I'm a total rice pudding lover and so when i saw this place had to try it. They let us sample a few flavours and i settled on having a cookies and creme rice pudding with a brownie crumble on top. The portion was pretty big, we'd come from a dinner so i didn't manage even half of it but i carried it back home in the cute little containers they come in and had it the next day for breakfast, it was just as good. Totally recommend this place! Also they're iced cider was delicious too.

“This will change your opinion about rice pudding forever”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

A friend recommended that we find this little spot when we were in NYC for the weekend. What a treat. Easy to find in a fun part of the city. I have never been a big fan of rice pudding, but this is definitely not your grandma's dessert. Interesting and unique flavors (mascarpone and cherries was a favorite), bright atmosphere, and very clever signage make for a fun experience. The staff was friendly, and even the bowls and spoons are a little funky and fun. Glad they ship!

“Marscapone Rice Pudding = The Garden of Eden in NYC”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

We regularly go to R2R - how could you not? Over the years I have sample dozens of flavors and many are superlative. But the marscapone is on the top of the list for me. Smooth, creamy and delish. The staff is friendly and patient; you may sample as many flavors as you want before making your selection. Like a great gellateria in Italy, order a few flavors. The bowls and spoons are colorful and unique; we have brought quite a few home with us.

R2R is a wonderful alternative to the dessert offerings at the various restaurants and bakeries a few blocks south in Little Italy.

“YUM YUM YUM!!”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

Every time we're in New York we make a special trip to Rice to Riches. It's yummy delicious! If too much times goes by before we can get there again--or we can think of an excuse where we can't live without it (a painful dental procedure)--we have had it shipped to us. Allow a few extra minutes to read all of the signs while enjoying your rice pudding. It's not an everyday meal, but an extra-special treat!

“Rice Pudding Lover”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

If you love rice pudding - this place is a must! Every type of rice pudding is available including seasonal flavors. Be prepared because it is so hard to choose. I recommend choosing 2 and get the smaller size of each. Careful not to eat too much at one time, but take your time to "savor the flavor" - this way you can enjoy it through out the day!
