Sweet spot in the East Village - Edit

Stopped into Stogo yesterday for a sweet treat on a hot afternoon. They had probably 20 flavors to choose from (not everything listed on their website was available), including hemp, soy and coconut varieties of ice cream. They also had some sorbet, plus cupcakes, cookies and brownies from Babycakes. Sadly no toppings, so I couldn't get the vegan sundae of my dreams, but the offerings were tasty enough on their own. And you do have the option of getting a personalized ice cream cookie sandwich.

I went with chocolate hemp and salted caramel pecan. My husband got bananas foster ice cream and mojito sorbet. All were excellent - I never would have guessed that they were non-dairy. Super creamy, gelato-style and decadently flavored. My favorite was the salted caramel pecan. I was expecting something with mix-ins, but all the flavors were pretty much blended into the ice cream. The chocolate was rich and delicious. The bananas foster was nice and banana-y and the mojito was tasty, but I prefer ice cream to sorbet.

The service at Stogo was really friendly. They generously offer samples (I tried the pomegranite chip, but decided against it) and make a point to make their customers feel welcome and happy.

Pros: delicious ice cream, friendly service

Cons: no toppings

What a great experience - Edit

What a great experience to enter a totally vegan ice cream shop! I literally didn't know what flavor to choose and I ended up having 4 ice creams. Simply Amazing! cannot wait to go back to NY to visit this place!

Pros: variety of flavors, totally vegan, location

awesome vegan ice cream - Edit

I've only eaten here once, but I ordered both an ice cream as well as a cupcake. I got the oatmeal cookie ice cream and a carrot cake muffin. The ice cream was perfectly creamy and had an awesome flavor. They offered maybe 10-15 different flavors of ice cream, all of which looked great. The one thing that would have made the ice cream even better was if they had some cones to serve it in rather than just cups. They did have the option of having your ice cream sandwiched between two cookies, which just sounded too sweet to me at the time.

I saved the cupcake to eat for breakfast the next morning since I was staying with some non-vegan friends and I wasn't sure what my options would be. The flavor of the cupcake was delicious, but it was pretty dry. This may have been because it wasn't freshly baked, but I don't think any of my homemade cupcakes dry out that fast, so I'm a bit doubtful that this was the main cause of the dryness. I'd be willing to try another cupcake next time I'm in the area to see if it was a fluke.

There was limited seating available inside and a few tables outside, which were all filled when I visited. Overall, this place is definitely worth a try if you're vegan and in the neighborhood!

Pros: delicious

Cons: no cones, a bit pricey

Vegan Ice Cream Heaven!!!!! - Edit

Visited on 29/06/11. If you've never been to a vegan ice cream parlour before (like we hadn't) prepare to be amazed. My girlfriend had choc-chip cookie and choc-chip vanilla (coconut base)ice cream sandwich, I had a tub of raspberry (hemp based) and vanilla bean (coconut based)ice creams. It rocked our worlds, we sat on their little bench and watched the world go by, and an elderly lady nearly get run over by the cops.

Pros: Vegan Ice cream!!!!

Cons: None.

Vegan icecream bliss - Edit

I am not a vegan myself, but am willing to trek quite far for good quality vegan ice cream, and this was definitely worth every step. Can not believe the bad review of the person with credit card issues, the people were super friendly, and the ice cream was just amazing! I had three huge scoops, and I finished every smudge. My favourites were chocolate chip cookie and chocolate fudge brownie. Do not miss this if you are in the neighborhood.. or even if you are not!

I only give four cows because I reserve five cows for great, full dining experiences, but the ice cream itself is worth five cows.

Pros: Great ice cream, Great varity of flavours, Reasonably priced

Cons: No seating area

Amazing selection - Edit

Amazing selection of vegan ice creams. Very friendly and helpful owner, she ensured we tried every flavour before we decided which to buy and also gave us advice on where else to get good vegan food in NYC.

Best flavours were chocolate fudge and caramel.

Pros: Amazing selection, Friendly staff

Best Vegan Ice Cream - Edit

This little joint in the east village serves my favorite vegan ice creams. Ever. The variety of bases makes it fun for lovers of texture, and the flavors themselves are creative (pistachio-cardamom, etc).

As a plus- they serve some other goodies (toppings!) from NYC bakeries like BabyCakes and chocolate shops like CocoaV!

Pros: Large Selection, Delicious Ice Creams, Open late night

Cons: No bathrooms

I'd give it one star if the program would let me - Edit

You're much better off going to Lula's on 6th between A and B, which is A) friendlier, B) tastier, and C) adorably decorated (not clinical and cold like Stogo).

The owner is a complete nutcase. They have a $10 credit minimum, which isn't legal (no credit minimum is, at least for major credit cards), and after I explained this to her she made up a lie about how she spoke to Visa and they assured her that she could have a minimum.

Also--who is going to buy $10 worth of ice cream? Granted, it's way overpriced, but that is still an unreal amount.

Pros: organic

Cons: everything else

Amazing ice cream - Edit

Ice cream heaven. There are so many different flavours. We had 3 scoops each, I wish I could have eaten more. Definitely recommended. One of the highlights of our trip to New York was eating totally decadent and delicious dairy-free ice cream from this place.

Pros: big choice of ice cream , healthy and/or indulgent, cakes too!
