Does vegan soft serve taste just like cow’s milk soft serve? No, and we’re not going to pretend it does. But it can still be rich and delicious, as proven by Vaca’s Creamery in Bucktown. This vegan ice cream shop’s oat milk-based soft serve is smooth, creamy, and a perfect base for their plant-friendly sundaes—like the s’mores sundae topped with cinnamon cookie crumble, toasted marshmallows, and fudge sauce. But one of the best things about this small, walk-up window-only operation is their housemade gluten-free waffle cone. It has a light cinnamon flavor, and manages to stay magically crispy no matter how much soft serve is dripping over the sides and onto your hands.
