Surreal Creamery

Surreal Creamery might be the key to bringing society together. No matter how hard you try, you can’t resist talking to the person next to you about what they ordered (and vice versa). This Greenwich Village spot serves sundaes in mason jars, with options like their Nom Nom Cookie with blue cookies and cream, marshmallow puffs, and chocolate syrup. You can also just get a cup of soft serve in flavors like taro, matcha, or earl grey vanilla and customize it with various toppings like condensed milk, waffle cookies, and Fruity Pebbles. But the “floateas” (soft serve on top of bubble tea) are why you come here. Take a few sips of tea, then have a bite of the ice cream swirled on top. Wait until the two layers begin to coalesce, and you basically have a bubble tea milkshake. It’s a beautiful thing.
