The Zagat Review
“Get your sugar fix” on at these “destinations” for pastry chef Christina Tosi’s “weirdly delicious concoctions” like compost cookies, cereal milk ice cream and appropriately “addictive” crack pie; the setups are simple, and while “too sweet” for a few, most embrace the “sinfulness.”

Zagat Mentions of Milk Bar Chelsea
Google Reviews
This place has very interesting soft serve ice cream flavours such as cereal milk and chocolate covered pretzel soft serve. The ice cream is salty and sweet, and very satisfying. It tastes strange compared to normal ice cream, but it is delicious. They have toppings such as corn flakes, sprinkles, chocolate chips, and fudge. You can also order a "milk quake" which has soft serve with something else mixed in such as birthday cake, crack pie, strawberries and corn flakes, or chocolate covered pretzel. This is a more substantial and filling dessert with big chunks of tasty baked goods. Milk bar also has a great selection of cookies. The classic compost cookie is a perfect mix between soft, crunchy, chewy, sweet, and salty. It has pretzels, potato chips, and chocolate in it. Milk Bar is a great place to get a unique tasting ice cream dessert or to try interesting baked goods.

Milk Bar is of course a famous chain, and this location is no letdown. Delicious milkshakes obviously - everything from the cereal milkshake to the birthday cake shake taste fantastic. They also have some pretty great coffee, a selection of Momofuku cookbooks/coffee table books, and some other items that look like they'd make good gifts (mugs, baking mixes, etc.). There's a window outside that you can order through as well, which I tend to use when I'm walking my dogs - super helpful for that. I believe this place only allows credit cards/no cash.

We love Christina on MasterChef, so we had to check this place out. While the customer service wasn't great at this location, the Crack Pie and B'day Truffles were so amazing. We'll definitely be back!
