ok - Edit

Although the description of this restaurant says "several vegan flavors," there is only one vegan flavor - tofutti vanilla. There are many vegan toppings and cones. The ice cream is very, very sweet. I inquired about the toppings but for some reason, was told that they couldn't actually put the toppings on my ice cream cone - they offered to give me the toppings on the side. I declined, but then saw that there were pics on Happy Cow of cones with toppings! What gives?!

Sweet Place - Edit

This really took me back: the decor to the 1950s and the vegan ice cream to the 1980s when Tofutti first became available. It was like Saturday night at our house in 1988. Three flavors of Tofutti (soy-based nondairy ice cream) chocolate, vanilla, and their unmistakable classic vanilla almond bark. Topped with nuts and fruit, absolutely delicious.
You really need a sweet tooth to enjoy it--more sugar than I'm used to eating nowadays! But still great fun to be able to eat it a such a unique place. The waffle bowl with 3 flavors is definitely enough to share with someone.+

Pros: vegan ice cream, lots of vegan topping choices, fun fifties decor

Cons: lots of sugary ingredients, not a place to go if you are vegan for your health

Good vegan ice cream, great atmosphere - Edit

On the day that we went, there were several vegan Italian ice flavors and one flavor of vegan ice cream - vanilla. One flavor doesn't sound like much, but the really cool thing is they have a vegan menu with some gourmet cones & waffle bowls, and a nice selection of vegan toppings!

The ice cream itself was delicious - not too sweet with a nice vanilla flavor. It was a bit on the soft side so it wouldn't stay securely on the cone and they gave me a plate & spoon. I don't know if they make it there or buy it, but it reminded me a lot of So Delicious soy-based vegan ice cream.

If you order the vegan ice cream, they give you an individually wrapped plastic spoon, so you know for sure that there was no dairy cross-contamination.

But the really cool & unique thing is the atmosphere: it's decorated in a 1950s/60s theme and the booths in the main room look like classic cars. The 2 side rooms are decorated like a 50s diner. Every inch of wall space is covered with vintage 50s & 60s posters and photos, including many signed by celebrities. Shelves hold tons of collectibles like vintage toys and memorabilia. Yes, that's a Beatles Halloween mask, a vintage record player, classic Barbie dolls, an antique phone booth, and a mannequin dressed like Lucille Ball.

If you're just going for the ice cream, other places have better vegan ice cream with more flavors to choose from (yes, Cookman Creamery in Asbury Park). But Cool Scoops is just so much fun and still one of the few places in NJ to get a vegan ice cream with loads of vegan toppings. I'm so glad that we went! We will definitely be back!

The only dairy free option in the area! - Edit

great dairy free options! super creamy. extremely nice staff who seem to care greatly to help support your diary free choices from ice cream to toppings. has a special list of vegan toppings. during summer has 3 or so flavors of dairy free, in non summer just vanilla which is still great and plenty of toppings.
