    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!

    Chocolate + Hot Fudge + Candied Pecans = Dairy Free Bliss. (Or anaphylactic shock if you can't eat nuts.)

    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.

    I seriously had no idea this place was Vegan until I checked out the 4sq tips as I was eating. Wow...

    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.

    VegNews Magazine · September 13, 2012
  • Ellie S.

    Don't bother with the hand packed flavors. Soft serve cake batter is where it's at.

    gluten free? soy free? dairy free? precious vintage knickknacks everywhere? old-timey music? moustaches? check, check, check, check, check, checkmate.

    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.

    The whipped cream melts fast but try it anyway, it's made from covonut.

    The butterscotch cashew butter milkshake makes my life. Also completely dairy free.

    Rachel S. · October 16, 2011
  • Jeanie

    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.

    Jeanie · October 10, 2011
  • Marivic G.

    one of the best places for all my lactose intolerant friends who LoOoVe ice cream :-)

    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!
