If baked goods are your downfall, this is the place to (literally) feed your vice. Pies, cakes, cheesecakes, cookies, brownies, ice cream... the only real problem is what to choose. Don't expect to find other types of food there - it's strictly desserts. It's a great place to take kids if you don't mind revving them up with a large dose of sugar. Ample seating both inside and out, but they do fill up. The line moves pretty quickly, so don't be overly intimidated if it's out the door. I'll definitely hit this place every time I visit Sacramento!

Fun and lively midtown spot for huge portions of cake and ice cream. Expect a line, but no one seems to mind.

Found this delectable diner when looking to waste some extra time in Sacramento. What a great place. They have numerous goodies, we chose the chocolate mousse and carrot cake and both were good. We visited on a Saturday night around 9:30 and then line was out the door, but well worth the wait. Service was great too.

I am literally a fat kid that loves cake. That being said, I have been going to Ricks for years and the cakes are all very decadent, rich, made with quality ingredients and fresh. The bonus is they have really good coffee. At the new location they have expanded the seating so you get the big soda fountain feel. It's a great place to meet a date for dessert.
