    Very good ice cream here. Cracked Salted Caramel is amazing. Prices are fair.

    Quite possibly the best ice cream I've had in NY. We ordered three scoops of awesome: The Dude, Salted Crack Caramel, and Mexican Chocolate.

    Some of the BEST ice cream I've ever had. Salty crack on pretzel cone. caramely/salty, not too rich. The pretzel cone is kind of thick however...not necessary for the experience.

    Salted Crack Caramel is... a very dangerous thing. Mexican Hot Chocolate was good. They had a flavor, Moroccan something that was mint with fig in it. Go for the crack, but the rest are good too.

    Prepare for long crowded lines. Ordered the salted crack caramel and the ooey gooey pound cake ice cream. Very disappointed in the crack caramel, very bitter and salty! Loved the pound cake ice cream!

    Unique flavor combos. Of the 2 I tried the smore one was super interesting. Excited to go back and try an ice cream flight.

    Not just ice cream but THE treat you need. All flavors are great but I recommend "the cookie that crumbles". Tip: always ask for one sample... Or more!

    This really is the best ice cream in New York. Go for The Munchies or Ooey Gooey Butter Cake. The only thing you'll regret is not getting a bigger size.

    Pro-tip: if you get a small serving, they'll actually give you two scoops and you can mix and match flavors.

    Not your typical ice cream store! Most warm and inviting staff I ever encountered. Unique, delicious flavors. Stayed way past closing and wasn't rushed at all! Loved it.

    Cookie au lait wasn't available, so we went with the commodore. Perfect blend of sweet and salty!

    The lines are long but the product is worth the wait. It's so damnably creamy that all other "ice cream" can go punch itself in the face.

    Homemade salted caramel ice cream is the way to go. Just avoid the free hand job night line that inevitably crops up on Saturdays.

    Try the Game of Thrones flavor (The Iron Cone). Black cherry ice cream, spicy dark chocolate, and sugar cone pieces. Diabetes is coming!

    It took dozens of visits before I got around to trying Sweet as Honey, but it's definitely a new favorite. So good.

    Small size of the Salt Crack Caramel is big enough to share with your buddy. Try before you get, it might be too salty for you if you are not from the States.

    What makes this place so good (besides the actual ice cream) is how great the staff is: cheerful, generous

    The chocolate sorbet texture was real flakey and unsatisfying (compared to some other vegan ice creams around like van leeuwens)

    Anything here is amazing. I'm obsessed with the oatmeal flavor. It sounds odd, but believe me, it's AMAZING

    Fun fact: These guys make all of our ice cream from start to finish, pasteurizing the milk, cream, sugar, and eggs together on site, which makes them a registered dairy plant!

    Among the quirky flavors is the aptly named "the munchies," a pretzel-infused ice cream studded with potato chips, pretzels, Ritz crackers, and mini M & M's. Read more

    Lots of exciting flavors, and all made entirely in-house. They make their ice cream from local milk which they pasteurize themselves (!) as well as local cream and eggs.

    They have an awesome Ice Cream Lab where you can literally watch the magic happen. They even have a window down low for the little ones to get a peek.

    Yes, the answer to your question is yes. Go inside and get ice cream. Don't worry about which flavor. They are all amazing. The answer is yes.

    The best ice cream I've ever had! No bases used here, everything from scratch. I'm convince they have a dairy cow out back.
