We stopped into this ice cream spot after dinner on Saturday night for a quick dessert. The place is a bit cramped inside, and they are doing construction on the outside of the building, so you might want to carry your ice cream cone away and eat it on a bench outside Central Park. For my dessert, I had a... More

This place is fabulous. Everything was delicious. Top notch quality with fresh ingredients. Only downside is the lack of seating.

I really wanted some good ice cream and had seen this had top reviews and with good reason. I had the peanut butter and chocolate on a waffle cone and my husband had the raspberry with white and dark chocolate on a coconut/chocolate dipped waffle cone. It was creamy and delicious!

Once you get inside from the scaffolding, you find a nice friendly ice cream shop with great flavors. Make sure you try some first.

I can take or leave ice cream, on the other hand my husband cannot live without it. While walking through Soho, we passed Emack's and it looked so inviting, colorful and fresh, so we stopped in. I had a rice crispy treat coated sugar cone with a scope of all natural vanilla cosmic crunch. I thought I'd died and went... More

Great icecream! Portions are normal, prices are ok, icecream? THE BEST! You know it's well made just by tasting it! It's in a great neighborhood, my top choice for a hot summers day!

Not sure what all the fuss is about. I got the cake batter ice cream and it was just okay, in fact, a little grainy.

Took 3 tired kids here and instantly revived them with delicious fresh ice cream. The cosmic crunch was excellent, as was the Purple cow and key lime pie. A great escape from New York heat (but there's nowhere to sit down).

If you happen to be on the UWS, you have to stop by this place. It's a tiny store and can be a bit pricey but definitely worth every cent!
