There are many good places for gelato in New York, but as far as I'm concerned none surpass Cones. If you're willing to travel off the beaten path, get the Corn gelato. It may sound odd, but it tastes amazing. And it's not just the gelato that's first-rate, there's also amazing sorbet. Pick whatever fruit is in season (blueberry is... More

In the heart of Greenwich Village, on Bleeker Street, this place make artisanal "Argentine gelato" that is 100% gluten free and 100% delicious. We aren't sure what "Argentine gelato" might be or how it differs from other kinds of gelato....and we don't care. It's great stuff. We were here after lunch.

Hoo-ha! Expensive (something like $4.50 for a cup of ice cream) but truly delicious! Try the dulce de leche (the owner is from Argentina, home of that great flavor). Bright sunny setting to sit and enjoy really rich and delicious ice cream (life is too short to settle for crummy ice cream!).

Very friendly service. Unique flavors you are encouraged to sample. Ice cream is creamy and satisfying. Loved the coffee mocha chip and dark chocolate. Definitely worth the trip.

If you've had good Brazilian ice cream and sorbets then you know why Cones is so good. The owner is clearly a Carioca or Paulista and knows what he is doing. They're generous with samples. I always end up getting the same thing but taste my way into temptations. Enjoy!

Staying in West Village

Neighborhood Profile
West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the West Village is one of the city’s most coveted addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture, this neighborhood has a unique old-world feel. You won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan. Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
