I had the banoffe pie and my friend had the malted cookie dough and we were both super happy with our choices. This is a great spot for those who are dairy free, and those who aren't, to indulge in delicious homemade treats!

Delicious products and love the milk free concept. For people with allergies, this is such a wonderful option. Will be back. The mint chocolate chip was delicious!

The dairy free ice cream here is delicious! I've tried many dairy free ice creams but this one is the best by far. You can have as many flavours as you like in each size of tub, plus a couple of testers if you want. The staff are super friendly which makes the experience even better.

FoMo can hang with any ice cream shop on any day. With a wide array of flavors, friendly staff, and a convenient location, this place is the best. The other cool thing is this "ice cream" is actually not made of cream at all. It's made out of coconut milk. Don't worry, it doesn't have an overwhelming coconut flavor (unless... More

Since I'm not a vegan I was a bit nervous about trying vegan ice cream....however it definitely grows on you. FoMu uses a coconut base, so if you don't like coconut this is not the place for you. The first few bites are overwhelmingly coconut flavored, but after a while you start to notice more of the flavors of whatever... More

If you want to experiment with different flavors of ice-cream, then this is the place to go. It is expensive than what a regular pint of your favorite would cost at a grocery store but the place should be tried at once a month if possible.

Visited with my husband and his parents after dinner and really enjoyed it. I especially liked that the options were both delicious and, for me, guilt-free. Definitely recommend!

FoMu has the most unbelievable flavors! All of their products taste SO good. Since we are allergic to dairy, it is the 1st place we can go & order anything off their menu! You will love it, guaranteed.

Great wide variety of flavors, from the unique (avocado, thai peanut, lavender) to the classic (vanilla, chocolate, espresso) to the crowd-pleasing (cookie dough, bourbon maple walnut). Very friendly service. Good rotating selection of other baked goods like cookies and doughnuts. Also offer smoothies and espresso drinks. Limited seating.

The ice cream was so rich in flavor non of us could finish our scoop. Can't believe it's vegan. The chocolate was overpowering but perfect with sips of hot coffee in between. I got the almond cherry but could not taste the almond as much. My son got an apple caramel which was not exciting but still good. He asked... More
