    Great place for something sweet after a show at Webster Hall. Can't get into Le Bain? that's ok, the Salty Pimp is far more enjoyable. Don't be discouraged by long lines...they move quickly!

    Sample quirky treats like the decadent Salty Pimp, a chocolate-dipped vanilla cone with dulce de leche and sea salt. The shop is small, so get your cones to-go. Read more

    If it's your first time here. Get the Salty Pimp. Vanilla ice cream / caramel & sea salt dipped in chocolate. This should introduce you to how a mix of Sweet & Salty go well together. Awesome Flavors!

    The truck only operates through the fall. Luckily, the new brick-and-mortar shop in the East Village has answered our prayers so we can get our fix way past ice cream season.

    Be careful: the BFICS is located at a unicorn crossing. You're likely to be trampled, with sparkly hoof prints left on your back as a warning to other oblivious customers.
