“Bland Coffee and Blander Service”
Review of Karma Cream

Karma Cream
Ranked #3 of 16 Bakeries in Gainesville
Restaurant details
Reviewed 5 September 2013

The coffee here is the type you get at a hotel continental breakfast. It's just pumped like oil out of a canister and handed over to you with an over-priced tag. I was not impressed. The ice cream is fair enough and meet the basic standard of what you'd expect for that price.

The true turn off was the terrible customer service from the owners who stayed busy but apparently are too busy to treat customers with even a smile or any sense that they care you even exist in their establishment. Maybe they are burned out from the constant overturn from the University and figure no one will notice if they don't care about their customers.

Most unique flavors around! Great atmosphere and a "must go" when in Gainesville. Well worth the price! Cookie sundae - yummy! Scoop of ice cream with espresso on top will have you singing!

Karma Cream is absolutely my favorite ice cream place. They offer exciting flavors that they change often both vegan and dairy. They have very nice staff and a great atmosphere. As a UF student I love coming here to read with a scoop of ice cream and one of their delicious coffee drinks. Their drinks are very reasonable and they serve them in adorable mugs. I get a medium soy iced latte (which they make with coffee ice cubes!) for only $3.95 (the price of a Starbucks tall soy latte- with no coffee ice cubes) They also have baked goods and sandwiches. But their ice cream is outstanding with unique flavors like Cinnamon Chocolate, Almond Coffee, and Lavender. I highly recommend this hip ice cream place if you are in Gainesville!

The ice cream is okay but too expensive for the serving. The service is uncomfortable because the servers are too rude and unfriendly.
