    Try the vanilla malt, which is really good and the cake batter flavor. Mint chip is phenomenal. Whatever you get here, do yourself a favor and top it off with the marshmallow sauce!

    Dubbed as "New York's First Natural, Non-Dairy & Vegan Frozen Dessert Shop". While that is true they didn't mention how damn delicious the ice cream is. My fav is cookies and cream. Super chill staff.
