    Remarkable ice cream with great vegan options. The shop looks exactly like what you would expect when I say "high end ice cream parlor."

    This is some of the best ice cream I've ever tasted. Both the dairy and the vegan varieties are made with top-class ingredients, not too sugary or overpowering, just damn right delicious!

    Very good ice cream. The scoops come in nice little stainless steel bowls. Went for $1 scoop day but would probably not come regularly due to price.

    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.

    The company has also started make vegan flavors using cocoa butter, coconut milk and cashew milk as a base. Among the vegan flavors, salted caramel and chocolate are the most popular.

    Everything about this place is my favorite. The trucks, the locations, the ice cream, the flavors. Get the salted caramel, strawberry, gianduja, or basically any flavor. Palm is really interesting

    Don't listen to these lying reviews! The ice cream here is awful! The ones that are decent are generic. They don't offer sprinkles and their cherries aren't cherries; they're actually marinated prunes

    Food network channel made their truck probably famous ahead of the actual shop. It is a very serene shop where everything screams "we are local". I personally like the seasonal fruity flavor ones.
