    Unique flavor combos. Of the 2 I tried the smore one was super interesting. Excited to go back and try an ice cream flight.

    Gorgeous ice cream & homemade cones. Very friendly staff. Excellent service:when one staff member gave us the wrong flavor, another corrected it with no fuss and gave us an extra scoop to boot.
  • Michael H.
    I'm typically a chocolate guy when it comes to ice cream. The Ooey Gooey Butter Cake (the creamiest vanilla ice cream with hunks of St. Louis-style Ooey Gooey Butter Cake) is STILL one of my faves.
  • Eugene K.
    The line for the ice cream is pretty long but totally worth your time.

    Incredible ice cream. Another one of my favorite ice cream places in the world. The flavors are rich and the scoops are large - ordering a double is often a mistake 😂

    This is the original location. If you can't decide get the ice cream flight, 6 flavors(each scoop is about the size of an egg). They have some outdoor seating.

    The original branch - there's a bigger branch on Nevin's St now with a rooftop alfresco bit - but this branch is great too even if small. Order the salted crack caramel.

    The line is always long, but it's well tended and moves quickly. Get The Raw Deal or Chocolate Milk & Cookies if you like chocolate and chunks.

    It's so hard to choose one favorite flavor, so change it up each time you go. Definitely try the chocolate chip cookie cone at some point, though. Perfect stop before or after a walk to Prospect Park.

    Nonna D's Oatmeal Lace is great!! 😋☺️ I wasn't a fan of the pretzel cone though, I think it was a bit too thick. A normal sugar cone would've been better.

    Very creative and really excellent basic flavors. More seasonal stuff is a bit over sweet and no options are organic. Amazing non diary select options.

    Takes you back to childhood with creative mix in for your now adult self (munchies, the dude, white russian, ooey gooey...) what's not to love when they let you taste as many flavors as you want.
