Pretty Cool is an ice cream shop with a lot of charm and the tiered seating reminds us of eating ice cream on a stoop in the summertime. The menu has lots of different types of treats to order: popsicles, mini-popsicles, “fancy pops,” buttermilk bars, custard bars, plant-milk-based ice cream bars, and collaborative Bang Bang “Piecicles.” These are all pre-wrapped on a stick, so you can’t sample flavors like you would in a scoop shop, but the good news is that they’re all delicious.
