Van Leeuwen Artisan Ice Cream

View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

Van Leeuwen is one of our all-time favorite ice cream places. The Greenpoint outpost is bright, has a few booth seats, and also serves coffee and a few pastries. They’re famous for their salted caramel and vegan flavors (which we promise don’t taste like vegan flavors), but all you need to know in order to do it right is: sundae. Get one or live a lesser life.
