Lunatics Ice Cream

$$$$
Perfect For:KidsQuick Eats

Lunatics Ice Cream sells just about everything you’d expect to find in a brochure for Coney Island. Cotton candy, candy apples, and rainbow spiral lollipops? Check, check, and check. You can also get classic flavors of ice cream like buttered pecan and cookies and cream as well as deep-fried Oreos and Twinkies. But the main reason you come here is the fresh hot funnel cake with a non-trivial amount of powdered sugar on top. If this sounds gross to you, we can’t be friends.
