A retro spot in the West Village starring handmade gourmet ice cream and Toby’s Estate coffee, with fun chill vibes and a mix of old and new pop tunes.
Made from scratch in Greenpoint, Van Leeuwen’s uses only fresh hormone and antibiotic free milk and cream, cane sugar, egg yolks and the best fruits, chocolates, spices and nuts from small producers locally and around the world to make their ice cream. Think flavors like Earl Grey and Ceylon Cinnamon. While the ice cream is definitely the hero, VL’s fresh pastries and Toby’s Estate coffee are equally delicious. You’ll find VL’s sold form trucks all around Manhattan and Brooklyn, but the East Village store is a super fun place to hangout and perfect for a first date. Picture Credit | Sidney Bensimon.
