When I came to Sacramento I was recommended to come here to Rick's Dessert. I came in and the employees were very friendly. The diner was very clean and it smelt so good in there. I tried some on their cupcakes and carrot cake. They were delicious! When I come back to Sacramento I will definitely come back here to Rick's.
Delicious – Great desserts and cakes they have here . I was in the neighborhood and decided to stop by in. This place was very clean, the workers were professional and nice! I got a cheesecake and a cupcake they were delicious !! I'm sure glad I passed by and tried this place out.
Good time here – I went up to Sac town on some quick business and was referred by a co worker to check out this pastry diner. Am so glad that I did. I had the Apricot Almond Gateau and it was really really good. It was big enough for me to take back to my hotel and snack on it for the next day as well. Good time.
The Best Cake Ever! – Rick's is the best!! This place made me the happiest bride in the world on the most important day of my life.. I've been married for 6 months now and to this day I'm still hearing about how good my wedding cake is. Word to the wise, if you ever get married you must get your cake at Rick's Desert Diner. The prices are outstanding and the service is even better!! Thank you for making my day perfect :0)!!
great desserts – mmmmmm... That's all I have to say :) their Blue Berry Cheese Cake is sooo good just thinking about it makes my mouth water. A friend of mine and I came here and tried it out since we have passed by it a few time and never came in. We came in they were very welcoming and their cheese cake was the bomb! Totally coming back!
Wow – My husband was telling me today how he and my daughter spotted Rick's dessert diner yesterday during a walk and how the desserts looked amazing. But after reading these comments and the awful experience they had with not only their choices but with the unprofessional owner, we won't be going there. What disgusting behavior from a business owner. I rather go to Freeport bakery where I've never had a bad experience and the cakes are wonderful.
Worst customer service – I ordered a cake for my husband's party. I went in Wednesday to order a cake with cream cheese frosting, as that is his favorite. The person who helped me was lovely and took the order, albeit he was new and had a difficult time. This was not a problem.
When I picked up the cake, it was very, very dry with buttercream frosting (which my husband really doesn't care for). I called and informed the manager/owner of the error. I was willing to come in and get a different flavor of cake with cream cheese that he had available and was also open to any other solution he could offer. Instead, he literally screamed at me on the phone, telling me I had insulted him for not liking buttercream. He admitted his employee had made a mistake but then said I should have filled out the form myself and he makes "the most perfect, beautiful cake in the world...it's award-winning cake." He continued to tell me that I was a terrible person, that he made perfect cakes, that I was against his race (he and I are, in fact, the same ethnic background), and that I did not deserve to eat his cake. I was shocked and told my husband.
He went in to the diner to take the cake back and get the refund. He calmly talked to the owner who proceeded to yell at him in front of other customers. Several customers were looking to purchase wedding cakes from this establishment and chose not to after hearing the over-the-top, horrific things that were said. One man thought the owner was going to physically react to someone and started to call the police. (My husband also went in with his mother and the owner yelled at her as well. She was just standing there).
I will not ever return - there is no reason to be treated that way by anyone, let alone as a customer. If you eat here, know that it is as is -- do not make any negative comments, ask to change your order, etc. (They have also lost my cake order before).
It was truly unbelievable.
DO NOT GO!! – Today my very good friend and I went wanted to enjoy dessert after a long day of work. We were in the area and stopped by Rick’s Dessert and Diner located on K Street and 23rd. However, we should have just keept’ on going because of Rick’s foul, impolite, and vulgar attitude towards his guests. If there was any award-winning here, it should have been for his unpleasant and overall RUDE attitude!
Even though I do not drink coffee, I have always enjoyed Tiramisu and it has become one of my favorite desserts of all times. Naturally, I ordered the Tiramisu at Rick’s, but to my disappointment after three bites, the espresso, and coffee flavor was to overwhelming for me to handle. In a respectful and nice manner, I told the cashier my concerns and she refused to offer me a different kind of cake, or even a refund because my complaint was on the basis of taste. Even though my concerns were not acknowledged, I understood and took it lightly. On the other hand, when I told my friend about my dislike to the Tiramisu, Rick happened to pass by and heard what I said, when he attacked us by literally screaming in our face saying that I was insulting him, that I was being rude, and I had no right to say that I did not like his award-winning, best-selling dessert! Unbelievable! My friend and I were speechless! I tried to explain my taste preference, but he had no ears to hear my criticisms. Never in my life have I experience such unprofessionalism, and uncouth behavior from let alone the owner! I do not think that was the proper way to treat a guest concerns. Everyone has different taste preference and he had no right to dictate what I should like. I am offended by his horrendous approach to my dislike in taste!
Save yourself the trouble, and dine somewhere that is hopefully more friendly and pleasant. Thank you for reading!

Desserts that make you want to slapp Yo Mamma! – When you walk in the circa 50's, neon light accented, multi-colored boothed boutique you know you are in a place like no other. You smell buttter, roasted pecan, pineapple, berries and chocolate wafting dubiously en areo, daring you to forget... to dis-inhibit and Go for it. The cakes are stacked high and decorated to dismantle any remaining inhibitions that your nose may have foregone. From chocolate cake, to brownies, icecream, pies tarts, tortes, custards and cookies-there is a sweet to touch that special need in your mouth. I decided on a piece of the delectable carrot cake and a white chocolate brownie - was not dissappointed. Mothers out there (fathers and kids too) be warned... your face is not safe when I visit Ricks DD!!! Pippette eat your heart out...
