Serving up NYC's BEST Belgian fries, milk shakes, ice cream, hot dogs, egg creams, frozen yogurt and more! Open 24/7! An East Village institution Since 1974!
The shakes are delicious. Ignore the decor and enjoy.
The milkshake was so delicious I forgot it was 15 degrees outside
The beignets are best shared with friends! You get a mound of about 20 or so for $6! Make sure to get some ice cream to pair it with cause they're served hot!
Yes, Ray is a legend. He lives up to his reputation.
This tiny shop has the BEST beignets I've had in NYC!!!!
You could wait 30 minutes for soft serve at Big Gay around the corner, or you could come here and get a dipped cone for half the price and pay homage to a true neighborhood landmark
Beignets. Beignets. Beignets.
A classic for a reason. Get the pistachio soft serve and go for a walk in the park
Get the soft serve and beignets and eat them in Tompkins square Park. There's way more than half a dozen when you order 6.
I ordered a 1/2 dozen beignets and they gave me 11. That's awesome.
The French fries with honey mustard sauce are all you need. Ever.
Best egg creams in the city
This place smells like the East Village: grease, sugar & nostalgia. Completely charming. Delicious soft serve.
Ray's friendly personality + his tendency to give you more food than you paid for = everything
ice cream $3-4!
Pistachio Soft Serve: $4.00
Finally a place that satisfies my craving for beignets. Usually I end up getting a few more than I asked for - they're really generous!
When you need drunk fries at 3 AM (and you know you do) this is the place.
soft serve is $4 n its huge!! try beignets, so yum!
Get the pistachio cone!
Good old fashioned soft serve - the best in NYC
His ex-son, Red Ed!
The service is almost as good as the beignets ♡
Their chocolate malts could easily be renamed liquid cocaine. Go there. Get one.
A NYC institution. Egg Creams are the best in the city and Ray is awesome. I could stay and talk to him all night. Great guy
An East Village institution! Great for a late night snack. I personally love the fries! 🍟 Plus, tons of sauces to choose from! #nyceats
Best egg creams in the city. My goto is a medium vanilla one.
Pistachio frozen yogurt!
I don't get the hype. Super fatty ice soft serve. Nothing special. Must be the nostalgia.
Try the Beignets
Good cheap food.
Best kept secret in the area!
Egg cream, beignets & fries are my favorites at Ray's!
Best Egg Cream in the city!
Ray is the sweetest man ever. Also, try the chocolate shake and beignets!
Pistachio soft serve.$3!!
If you happen to be heading home and can somehow manage to hold off eating your beignets, I implore you to spread them with some Speculoos cookie butter (now available at Trader Joe's). Divine!
Every morning at 3:04, Ray sings the National Anthem.
absolutely love this place
Try the beignets at your own risk, they are so good you'll be hopelessly hooked
whenever i'm in the e. village & want ice cream, i just pop into this spot for frozen pistachio yogurt.
