One of the first places I stopped by when I visited Boston. I went there for two reason: excellent ratings from Trip Advisor and it's vegan. I have an egg allergy and eggs can be in ice cream, therefore I was ecstatic when I saw a vegan ice cream shop in Boston. I got two scoops, one lavender and... read more

An oasis for those with lactose issues or a variety of other dietary restrictions and preferences, FoMu has outstanding no-sacrifice solutions: YOU CAN'T TELL THE DIFFERENCE. Their flavors are original, inventive and satistying AND they will keep you coming back for more! They make ice cream in small batches just a few miles from their stores to ensure every scoop...

All the ice cream is vegan and lactose-free. The flavors are all very unique and interesting. The ice cream tastes almost exactly like a premium ice cream, even though it contains no milk or cream.

Delicious!! Very satisfying with good small portion. Friendly staff and nice atmosphere.. Ice cream is the best part of the FoMu.. Anything else (pastries and drinks) was mediocre.

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
