Beetle House founder brings ridiculous milkshakes to 6th Street with Cake Shake
Cake Shake USA has arrived at 514 E. Sixth St. between Avenue A and Avenue B.
The shop's Instagram account simply notes: "Cake Shake USA COMING SOON TO NYC AND LA!"
Cake Shake is the creation of Zach Neil, the entrepreneur behind the Tim Burton-themed Beetle House on Sixth Street as well as the now-closed Will Ferrell bar Stay Classy on the LES and the short-lived 'Merica NYC on Sixth Street.
Neil shared a few posts via his Instagram account showing Cake Shake's vegan concoctions... such as this pop-mocha shake with vegan chocolate cake, handmade caramel corn, caramel, vegan whipped cream, etc. ...
Cake Shake will also serve over-the-top non-vegan items too, such as the Shake Rattle and Roll, aka the “Elvis” chocolate cake with peanut butter, chocolate ice cream, maple glazed bacon, banana, freeze dried banana cubes, fresh caramel and chocolate straws...
Cake Shack had a soft-opening sneak preview Saturday evening. No word on when they will be open full time.
The space was most recent recently an office for restaurateur Ravi DeRossi and DeRossi Global (they moved a short distance away) ... and Betola Espresso Bar before that.
