    Gianduja ice cream. Like Ferrero Rocher in heaven form. Add hot fudge too!

    Gianduja is pronounced as "John-Dew-Ya"

    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.

    the earl grey is class!

    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 ....

    Vegan chocolate ice cream doesn't taste dairy-free (except it is!)

    Go for the salted caramel, really salty and goes well with chocolate

    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

    Vegan ice cream. So good. Mint chip is solid.

    Get the Gianduja "John-Dew-Ya" flavour. Like frozen healthy wholesome version of Nutella and just as good!

    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.

    Nick Lucchesi · April 17, 2013
  • Antonio X.

    The John something ice cream is definitely a must-try! Open until midnight and really nice staff!

    Ginger ice cream is divine!

  • Alastair T.

    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.

    Alastair Tse · June 30, 2012
  • Katherin S.

    I looooove the hazelnut and pistachio! Get the earl grey tea flavor if you want something out of the ordinary.

    Katherin Son · June 11, 2012

    Gianduja and Pistachio ice creams are the best!!!

    Best latte in the city

  • Bollare

    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

    Palm sugar!

    The ice cream is to die for... But in the morning a latte is ah-mazing.

    Talk to Whitney, the assistant manager! She'll give you the whole history of LV and how to get high off of cinnamon ice-cream!

    Best ice cream in the city. I'm in love with all the flavors, but I always am a sucker for the classic chocolate. It's perfectly silky.
