Mikey Likes It Ice Cream
@mikeylikesiticecream
Michael “Mikey” Cole is one of the first pop culture-inspired ice cream shops. Ice Ice Mikey? Yup. Pink Floyd? Oh Yes. Fun fact: an ex-con who sold marijuana, Mikey got into the business after a homemade vanilla ice cream recipe made it big. That's true Southern flavors and hospitality for you with the delicious vanilla X 3!

MO Gelato

When Italy arrives in New York. Mo’s rich, creamy, classic gelatos come in an array of classic and twist flavors from the master gelato-maker in Italy.

Classic with twists aplenty! Soft Swerve is best known for the sprinkling on swirls of soft serve ice cream, usually in bright colors and flavors. Try them all!

Van Leeuwen Ice Cream 
@vanleeuwenicecream
Flavors might not get wild but they are deep, indulgent, and especially the vegan and newer oat milk-based ice creams, with the former in coconut base.

Whipped Urban Dessert Lab
@urbandessertlab
With lab and science at its forefront, this is a minority and women-owned, award-winning hotspot. The first plant-based and indulgent oat milk soft serve, that alone merits how its take on the classics can taste so, so, so delicious!
