    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.

    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.
