This is a take out ice cream cone or dish place with loads of unusual flavors. It was mobbed at 9:30 on a Saturday night in the summer with a big line that moved quickly.

The line was out the door and down the block...I waited in the line!! I was totally disappointed that there was no flavor with chocolate and any kind of nuts! I did enjoy "Chocolate Addiction" with fudge chunks...would have been better with NUTS!!!

Delicious ice cream with large variety and fun cones. Friendly staff. But like most things in NYC, still a little overpriced

I've seen these originals ice creams a lot, and couldn't go from NYC without tasting them, they are delicious, original flavors and combinations, and heir cones, which are their specialty are awesome and delicious too.

Three of us had dishes and a cone. I had the latter with chunky monkey (cookie dough, vanilla, & Oreo) - delicious!

We think for the prices they charge, they could do a lot better. Not much flavor. Not creamy like a homemade ice cream should be. Much better places in the Big Apple!
