Five of us went last night, we have four desert tapas $34.95, five drinks ($24) and two light bulb glass ($2.5*2). The bill is $95, they added tips automatically. No matter how I calculate, including tax and tips, the max should be less than $82. We did not pay attention to the bill in the store, we paid $95. I... More

My girlfriend lives for dessert. Mostly chocolate. We decided to visit Spot after a dinner. I've never seen her happier than sitting in this dessert bar eating three different desserts. Hands-down, this place is a must-visit.

One of our Favorite Dessert places. The Desserts are creative and delicious! One of the rare places that also offer Nutella Hot Chocolate! Perfect hot drink for cold days. Mmmm.... Be warned that the waiting line is usually very long (doesn't matter if it's cold or hot outside or what time of the day). The wait is so worth it... More

Harvest - the best desserts I've ever had. On our last night in the city, we crossed half of Manhattan to have another one of those. On the downside, not very relaxing atmosphere and no bathroom for customers.

We went to Spot dessert bar especially after reading recommendations on the web. in order to avoid waiting in line we decided to go at 16:00, it was a wise decision. the place is a small coffee shop with fixed menu. although the desserts are "Tapas" they are large and you can easily be satisfied and full from one dessert....

Staying in East Village

Neighbourhood 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 neighbourhood 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 neighbourhood, 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.
