Hi,
My family is coming to NYC tomorrow for a long weekend and I am wondering where to go to get a lot of ice cream flavor choices?
I was looking forward to Lula's but see they have not reopened :(
My daughter is 5 and I would love to take her someplace to get something other than sorbet, vanilla or chocolate.

Thanks!

Sustainable NYC sells Lula's ice cream at their cafe (139 Avenue A, between St Mark's & 9th St), i think about 6 flavors when i was there this spring. Ice Cream House looks like it has a bunch of vegan options, if you'll be in Brooklyn. two ice cream trucks (Coolhaus and Van Leeuwen) also have vegan options. i've only tried Lula's, so i can't vouch for any of the others.

I was at Sustainable NY on Saturday and they had eight flavors. I've had Ice Cream House ice cream at other places and it's good but not as good as Lula's. I've had one flavor of Van Leeuwen and I liked Lula's and Ice Cream House better.

Coolhaus has vegan options?! I don't know why, but the coolhaus truck was driving around astoria yesterday. maybe they were just going home, but i'm HOPING that they were stopping somewhere in the 'hood. i had no idea they had vegan options.

hmm, maybe they only have cookies and sorbets that are vegan. http://eatcoolhaus.com/menu

sorry to get your hopes up :(

I wish I had seen this before we left NYC, but I DID get to have Lula's at Sustainable NYC and it was seriously the best vegan ice cream I have ever had. Unbelievable.

I should have gone today! It's been closed so long it didn't even occur to me.
