Ice Cream

East Village

$$$$Perfect For:Impressing Out of Towners

Included In

When it comes to ice cream places, there are really only two types. One type prioritizes base ice cream flavors, and the other focuses on toppings and mix-ins (although this is, of course, a spectrum). For some reason, shops that fall into the latter category tend to have better names for their flavors, 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. This is a fun spot, and it’s perfect for when your standard ice cream place simply doesn’t have enough to offer.
