Magpie’s is arguably the most popular ice cream place in the city right now. And for good reason: this Silver Lake strip mall spot is making the best soft serve you can find on the Eastside. Lines during peak hours (and unexpected heat waves) can get downright heinous, but the wait is worth it, especially if soft serve is something you get excited about. If it’s your first time, the move is definitely their signature sweetened cream, and then get involved with their daily flavors (like maple French toast) on return visits. And not to worry, you will certainly be returning.
