On a fundamental level, there are only two types of ice cream places. One type prioritizes base ice cream flavors, the other leans toward toppings and mix-ins (although this is, of course, a spectrum). For some reason, the latter also tends to have better names, and Mikey Likes It is a great example. Here, you can get a scoop of “Foxy Brown” with chocolate wafer cookies and a sea salt caramel swirl or some “Pink Floyd” stuffed with strawberry and cheesecake. It’s a fun spot, and it’s perfect for when your standard ice cream place simply doesn’t have enough to offer.
