A short walk from my office - special occasions only

The ice cream at FoMu is a revelation. They have some unique flavors, funky toppings and great service. I don't allow myself to go there more than once a week in summer.

Went here for a cappuccino and a whoopie pie on a date and honestly one of the best places to just sit and talk. There's something about a place that serves you dessert on actual plates instead of paper that makes the experience memorable. This place is one of those local establishments that adds flavor the community around it. Definitely... More

You can't go wrong with an ice cream shake from FoMu. The green monster and coffee shakes will make you forget that you miss dairy. And super ironic bonus: real milk is not even located on site for coffee - it's just almond or soy or nothing. Awesome.

So my parents are vegan and my wife loves ice cream.... what's a guy to do? Take them to FoMu. This was one of the best things I've ever eaten- EVER. It's coconut ice cream that tastes like actual ice cream, but is actually way better. As a read blooded meat eater, I can honestly say I prefer the FoMu... More

I am reviewing the store in Jamaica Plain, but the icecream should be the same. When it was first opened, I was very skeptical. Since JP is the home to JP Licks with its flagship store two blocks down the street. We decided to give it a try with some friends. Wow, we were blown away by the tastes and... More

After a great lunch up the street at Grasshopper, I stopped in for some of Fomu's incredibly delicious vegan ice cream. The spicy thai peanut has got to be the most creative and tasty ice cream flavor I've ever tried. So creamy with a little kick at the end. Really friendly staff and cute decor.

I must admit that I was skeptical of non dairy ice cream at first but I decided to try FoMu and keep an open mind about it. This place is amazing. They make their ice cream with either almond or coconut milk but you really can't tell too much of a difference. The flavors are extremely creative too; when I... More

Was eating lunch next door and saw FoMu. Being a sucker for sweets, the title "Alternative ice cream" drew me in. I ordered a scoop of the Banana PB Patties (one of the Girl Scout Cookie Flavor offerings of the day). Really unique flavors. If I had more room, I would have gotten another scoop! Will e back to taste... More
