We stopped in before our show at the Barrow Street Theater for some ice cream. Love the golden girls picture in back! We split a pint of Lunchbox which is strawberry ice cream with peanut butter cups filled with strawberry and it was awesome. No...More

Stopped by after lunch for a treat. They have a variety of toppings and such, but at its core it’s soft serve ice cream. The decor and idea is cool , and makes for a cool post on your Instagram or Facebook.

My friends and I stopped here after lunch. The place was packed, but the line moved quickly. I had the chocolate peanut butter milkshake. It was wonderful. Everything looked delicious. It's your childhood ice cream shop upsized for grown-up you. Lots of choices. Then take...More

Hot summer day and an ice cream was just the ticket. I had rocky roadhouse which is caked in nuts salt and chocolate, very much enjoyed. We got a seat after a short wait. I wouldn’t eat outside as would have melted in seconds. We...More

We were excited to try this after seeing it on tv and hearing the hype- but it was bland and dipped in attitude! Normally we love soft serve- but this was just meh with a unicorn on the window. Love the area, but way better...More

Ice cream tastes like chemicals. Plus the worst customer service ever. Ordered a root beer float and asked for it to be blended. They made it using coke and charged me double price just to blend it. Manager was extremely rude. Waited 15 mins on...More

Big Gay Ice Cream Shop has some seriously good soft serve. The texture and consistency are great. Just an FYI, they typically only have vanilla, chocolate, swirl, and a rotating specialty flavor. They have more flavors available as scoops

Went out of my way to try this place. They have soft serve ice cream. And only 3 flavors (at least when I was there-Vanilla, Chocolate and a rotating flavor). It was good but it did not live up to the hype. I love the...More

Big Gay Ice Cream has quickly become a staple of the Christopher Street area. It actually started out as a legit ice cream truck and morphed into a brick and mortar location. Their ice cream is awesome, but is a little on the expensive side....More

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
