    Who orders ice cream in the morning? That's right. No one. But for some miraculous reason, V.L. opens early. Snag a table (any table, they'll all be empty!) in one of the prettiest places in town.

    Not just an ice cream stop! They also serve delicious Intelligentsia Coffee. They have a great space and rarely have a line. A good back-up plan if the line at Abraco down the block is out of control.

    If you can’t track down a truck, you can always visit their tiny shop to get your Hazelnut or Peppermint & Chip creamy ice cream fix.

    The maple latte on ice is amazing. A little sweet so try adding an extra shot of espresso! Oh - and the kale scone. You had me at kale ....

    You can be sure that when you spot one of its pastel-yellow trucks, there will be a line snaking around the corner waiting for elegant ice cream flavors like ceylon cinnamon, hazelnut, and Earl Grey. Read more

    At this fine establishment, you can buy $7 ice cream, with freezer burn, served to you by a sighing 20-something who mutters to himself "perfect timing" when you pull out your credit card. A+ exp.

    The flavor of the ice cream here (Espresso and Pistachio) is not as strong as I like. In fact, it tastes a little too sweet. I would prefer more flavor and less sweetness.

    The best summertime treat in the hood. My go-to favorite flavor is Pistachio, but the Giandujia (chocolate hazlenut) is equally awesome. Plus they brew Intelligentsia Coffee! —Tanya
