The quality of the ingredients (like whipped cream made from imported Italian cream and fresh fruit from the Greenmarket in Union Square) and the range of flavors make this place one of the best ice cream spots in the city. There are almost no simple options here, so expect to walk away holding an accessorized cup of pistachio fig affogato or an almond oreo sundae that’s loosely based on Italian tri-color cookies. It helps that all of the toppings are free, even coconut berry crunch and Oreo brittle.
