Why locals recommend it
It’s a destination dessert restaurant and nostalgic trinket shop that has been around since the 1950s—and yes, the movie was filmed here. I also had my sweet 16 party here! Its famous Frrrozen Hot Chocolate comes in a giant glass with a pile of whipped cream on top. The freaking amazing ice cream sundaes—three scoops topped with your choice of syrup. I go with chocolate ice cream always and add hot fudge AND peanut butter, and of course whipped cream. For me, it’s not a sundae without those three ingredients.
Tips from locals
Restaurant from the movie! Definitely need reservations to enjoy the famous frozen hot chocolate.
Don't miss the chance to head to Serendipity for the Frozen Hot Chocolate! The atmosphere harkens back to to days gone by and adds to the joy of decadent vacation-only gastronomical splurges!
This is and iconic restaurant in NYC. Be aware that there will be lines. I'm not sure if they take reservations. But the frozen hot chocolate is so worth it!
Very popular iconc and right of the first stop into manhattan. Make a reservation, as lines are very long.
