The unicorn in the window might be fun but the quality of the ice cream is terrible. It is just cheap soft serve dressed up with a fancy covering if you order that. But nothing can hide the dreadful ice cream underneath. Icecream for me...More

Ice cream was good, but the establishment itself is catered to the selfie you might take for IG. Its a fun location in a good neighborhood worth walking around in. The walk is even nicer with a big a ice cream.

Stopped by after lunch for a treat. They have a variety of toppings and such, but at its core it’s soft serve ice cream. The decor and idea is cool , and makes for a cool post on your Instagram or Facebook.

Hot summer day and an ice cream was just the ticket. I had rocky roadhouse which is caked in nuts salt and chocolate, very much enjoyed. We got a seat after a short wait. I wouldn’t eat outside as would have melted in seconds. We...More

Ice cream tastes like chemicals. Plus the worst customer service ever. Ordered a root beer float and asked for it to be blended. They made it using coke and charged me double price just to blend it. Manager was extremely rude. Waited 15 mins on...More

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you
