Ordered two scoops of what I thought was pistachio cream. But it looked brown and tasted like peanut butter. So I ordered the chocolate which was full of ice Crystal's. For $9.00. Sorry. It's a CHOP for me. Never again

A little icecream with a lot of icecream for far too high a price. Felt quite stupid. The first and only visit.

Perhaps our expectations were too high since I researched the best ice cream in NYC, but we found the ice cream to be very average. Would not go back.

I don't use any artificial sweeteners as I can tolerate them. Their ice cream is very natural and well made. The sales people are knowledgeable about each flavor so don't be afraid to ask any questions. Good place to try... More
