Fabulous [vegan] ice cream

The vegan coconut ice cream is truly divine. I spent the outrageous $9 on a pint of it, and genuinely have no regrets because it is THAT good. My omnivorous family did no realize there wasn't dairy it. Even my grandmother who thinks the vegan Ben and Jerry's flavors aren't creamy enough (which cracks me up) approved with gusto!

Pros: Creative flavors & vegan options, Locally sourced ingredients , Cool, community vibes

Cons: Expensive (but worth it!!)

Amazing ice-cream and flavours

So many flavours to choose from here - I went with a scoop of grape and a scoop of peach and cinnamon - delicious!

Yummy vegan options!

This place was busy when I went but the service was quite efficient. They have just as many vegan options as non-vegan ones and the flavors are pretty unique! They made sure to clearly repeat back the order and were super friendly! My only criticism is that there was only one size cup. I tried the vegan dark chocolate mint, which was super creamy, and the rosemary lemonade sorbet, which was very refreshing.

THE VEGAN MALT MILKSHAKE REMINDED ME OF MY CHILDHOOD. SO GOOD! They had different vegan milk options for my shake as well! I look forward to trying their vegan hot-chocolate and whip cream.

The ice cream is good but overrated and portions are small.

So good!!

Hit the spot on a hot day. The chocolate sorbet was a little too sweet, but the Thai basil coconut with mango was amazing, as were the other fruit options (which I don’t usually go for).

Pros: Vegan options clearly labeled (as sorbet)

Best ice cream I’ve ever had!

This place is hands down the best ice cream I’ve ever had—dairy-free or otherwise! They have unique flavors (not just fruit sorbets) and it’s super rich and creamy.

Amazing vegan ice cream

The (vegan) dark chocolate sorbet is the BEST. It’s the richest vegan chocolate ice cream I’ve ever had. Several fruit sorbets are also available (I recommend mango and raspberry). They also have vegan hot chocolate and some vegan baked goods.

Really liked the sorbet! I love how they have a vegan cookie (yum!!) and that all their sorbets (clearly marked with an “s” sign) are vegan. The staff knows what vegan is, and is happy to answer any questions.

Pros: Great sorbet and cookies, Friendly staff who knows what vegan is, Lots of vegan options

Cons: Usually a long wait, Small eating area and no outdoor seating.

Heavenly Ice Cream and Sorbet

Bent Spoon is quite a phenomenon. They opened up an ice cream store right in between two of the most well-regarded ice cream shops in town... and outdoes them both. Or put another way, Bent Spoon found fills a niche: they offer very unique (mostly locally sourced and sometimes organic) ice cream flavors and sorbet (dairy free). The staff is friendly and you can sample as much as you'd like before you order. You can also pick up to two flavors with a small order.

Pros: heavenly ice cream, unique flavors, locally sourced

Cons: lines can be long, wish it were open a bit later
