We went on Wednesday night after dinner and I wish I had not eaten all of my supper. I had the honeycomb while my husband had the vanilla and blackberry danish. OMG!! This ice cream was so good as soon as we returned home, I...More

Ascribing faith in Whole Foods' selection of Van Leeuwen ice cream, I bought several pints of mint chip to try. Eager to enjoy pure ice cream ala my childhood, I sampled it at once. My first mouthful sent shockwaves of an overload of salt through...More

Van Leeuwen has shops all across the city. Do yourself a favour and pass by one of them. They make the waffle cones right in front of you and they are still warm when being served. The ice cream is delicious - and yes, very...More

I found their ice cream almost too rich to enjoy. The honeycomb flavor left a thick film on the roof of my mouth. Almost like butter. I got one scoop for $6 and threw it out after 4 bites. Not worth the wait on the...More

My salted caramel was far too salty. $15 for two medium-sized ice creams. Would not rush back and no comparison the Italian icecream in Italy.

I like this ice cream shop because it is open late and it has very original flavors. The service is a little slow and the serving sizes are small - but the ice cream is very creamy! The vegan chocolate is delicious, and I am...More

My favorite sundae is the New Yorker, vegan espresso ice cream, non-dairy whip cream, chocolate syrup, and cacao nibs! YUMMY!

It’s quite small so limited seating available. An extensive choice of ice cream, both regular and vegan. I had the earl grey; a huge serving which was delicious as it was big. If I’m in the area I’ll be sure to pop back in!
