    Try standard flavors like strawberry, butter pecan, or mint chocolate chip. Specialty options rotate with the seasons, and soft serve is made with Crown Maple Syrup. Read more

    The creamiest ice cream around! Strawberry is my fav so far. Also be careful how much salt you add to you ice cream. A little goes a long way!

    My favorite ice cream place! I come for both creative & classic flavors. They also offer sorbets, coffee, pastries, etc. and toys for the kids.

    We especially like the smooth, creamy strawberry ice cream—which has a touch of tartness—at this Brooklyn mini-chain.

    Great simple flavors done really well. If you're feeling like mixing it up though, get a molten marble – a scoop of ice cream doused with an espresso shot.

    Try the classic strawberry for a taste so fresh, it's like you're eating strawberries straight from the field.

    'The high butterfat content of the scoops here ensures a super creamy texture, but the flavors stay bright. Our favorite scoop? Probably the strawberry'

    Personally love this place better than the shop on Vanderbilt. Ice cream is much more appetizing and not too heavy on the cream.

    Heavy, creamy texture with some very unique flavors. Go for the bread and roses, if you like rose flavored anything

    Try the Root Beer Ice Cream - A little runny but great with the help of a cup. Tastes like a light root beer float!

    A pint size scoop shop serving ice cream cupcakes and oversize waffle cones is an ideal post-park stop.

    Bagels are from Bergen Bagels and therefore good. Nice people at Blue Marble will toast them and appy peanut butter and honey, which is unheard-of, and even better.

    Staff Pick! Lidy (Development): I've only gotten the coffee ice cream which is a sweet delicious lunch alternative (yes, you can have ice cream for lunch). They also have a kids corner...

    Staff Pick! Katie (Curatorial): Sea salt brownies and fresh sorbets are amazing. Fresh muffins and baked goods from Blue Sky Bakery (rasberry-zuchinni-dark chocolate muffins--yum!)

    The muffins are really good. For me, they offer too many combo flavors (mango-strawberry, banana-pineapple, etc... I'd rather just have plain blueberry) but I honestly haven't had a bad one yet.

    The ice cream here is amazing! I'm a chocolate person, but I have to say the fruit ice creams are something special. Try strawberry or blackberry!

    Staff Pick! Eleanor (Education): My favorite thing to do is to combine all the shop's attributes and get a scoop of vanilla ice cream in ice coffee.

    Great ice cream, but often understaffed on weekends, so unnecessary long lines

    They don't have it often, but PISTACHIO ALL THE WAY & don't forget about the brownies next to the cash register.

    This place makes me a fan of strawberry ice cream. Delicious w chocolate and then you're two thirds of the way to neapolitan.

    Decent ice cream but pretty expensive for very small portions. Do yourself a favor and walk the few more blocks to Ample Hills.

    Pretentious, over-priced for the portions you get, and surly service. Try Ample Hills instead.
