Really delicious ice creams made with high quality ingredients, and they do have a very velvety, creamy texture. Good range of flavours too, will hopefully be back to try more before flying home.

Yes, be prepared to wait on a long line. Very good ice cream. My vegan son found several flavors that fit his diet. She unusual flavors as well as the regular ones. Some seating inside , but not a lot.

Not cheap, but some delicious ice cream. Very sweet. There was a long line, but it moved fast. There is indoor seating, and there is also some outdoor benches.

We were searching for an ice cream shop while on vacation in NYC and found Van Leeuwen's. There was a short line outside the door—we probably waited for 20 minutes to get the ice cream. The shop itself is tiny, and there is room for...More
