MadLab is an ice cream shop in the Design District. And, like all things in the Design District, it’s a little fancy and over-the-top. For example, you can get your ice cream topped with gold leaf and fluffy cotton candy that will kind of make your cone look like Bob Ross. But the reason we like this place is that the ice cream underneath all that fancy stuff is really good. And if you don’t want to pick gold leaf out of your teeth in the bathroom, you can just come here for a couple plain scoops of matcha or passion fruit and still be very satisfied.
