    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.

    An old-fashioned sundae glass was filled with cake batter soft-serve, chocolate peanut butter ice cream, hot fudge, pecan pralines, and coconut whipped cream—these are the things dreams are made of.

    The absolute best 100-percent vegan ice cream storefront on the East Coast, Lula’s never lets us down, with an abundance of toppings including gummy bears, sprinkles, and whipped cream.

    THE BEST. Do not forget to add copious toppings to your concoction. Things you'll have a hard time finding vegan elsewhere for your dreamy dessert: marshmallow creme, gummy bears, graham crackers.

    I've done some extensive research on vegan ice cream and I can say without a doubt Lula's is the best. Had the drumstick cone flavor. Will be back to try more.

    They care about more than making money from vegans. The flyers and cards show they support animal rights/liberation and that's reason enough to support them in turn. Also, mind-bendingly good ice crea

    If you're a vegan, this place is heaven. Everyone else: Don't be afraid, the soft serve is the real deal. And relatively guilt free!

    The banana split is out of this world. The malted is also pretty spectacular. Their cake batter soft serve with sprinkles is probably the greatest flavor ever.
