  1. I love ChikaLicious Dessert Bar. There is also their more upscale dessert restaurant across the street: ChikaLicious.

      I'm a huge fan of ChikaLicious. To be accurate, ChikaLicious Dessert Bar is the flagship. About a dozen seats at the counter + a few tables. The satellite across the street is the Dessert *Club*. Mostly take-out though there are a few tables.

    2. Spot gets raves. I need to go there.
      Dessert Club Chikalicious was okay - never been to the dessert bar.

        i also wasn't so impressed with Dessert Club. Dessert Bar was far less impressive.

        Spot is definitely worth checking out. they're doing some very creative flavors and presentations. for anyone that goes, be mindful that the menu recommends 4 desserts for 3 people, 5 desserts for 4 people and so on. we didn't find this to be necessary at all. in fact, it became a chore to finish the last few bites. highly recommend the Yuzu Eskimo. didn't care so much for the Apple Tart.

          Second Spot. Pretty good atmosphere, too.

      2. Or go back to the past with Veniero's (342 E.11th St: or DeRobertis Caffe (176 First Ave:

        Is Milk Bar still there &/or out of fashion?

        1. milk bar is solid but you are going to have to brave the lines depending what time you go. there is Led Zeppole if you are in the mood for deep fried stuff. Sundaes and Cones if you want ice cream or in the fro yo mood, just walk down st. marks for the 4 different fro yo places.

          if you venture bit further to the LES, there is Stellina which has coffee, gelato and other things. Cafe Abraco does coffee and has a decent dessert/bake goods menu
