Lots of fun flavors and sundaes!

I haven't had a sundae in years and it was great and had cherries that tasted really good on it.

Best vegan ice cream

I’m amazed at how good this vegan ice cream tastes coming from such an unassuming storefront. Beats out so many big name brands. Only downside is store hours are inconsistent and hard to find.

Pros: Delicious, Great variety of flavors

Cons: Never know when they are open

So Many Flavors!

The variety of flavors intrigued me, so we checked it out and it was really yummy too!! The girl told my husband that it could come on a GF chipwich and he was sold because that’s his FAVORITE!!! 🤤 We’ll be back… parking is just so hard…

Certainly some of the best ice cream I've ever had, let alone vegan ice cream.

Friendly service with a variety of creative flavors, which really embraces the food's versatility. I hadn't thought of sage ice cream before, but it totally works: vibrant and savory. The golden milk flavor (turmeric, ginger, etc.) was complex; less punchy than sage but maybe easier to eat in large quantities. I would love to try more.

If you're visiting Beacon (maybe for the art museum?) consider a trip here afterwards.

No complaints. $6 for a pretty good sized scoop of vegan rocky road in a waffle cone with sprinkles. Hard to not eat this after you get a sandwich here

Amazing vegan ice cream

Delicious! Creamy! It doesn’t taste like coconuts unless it’s supposed to. I love this ice cream. It’s all made in house with real ingredients. They don’t use gums or fillers or anything weird. Mostly made with cashews but they do have flavors for people who can’t have cashews. Go try it!

Pros: Creamy, Great flavors , Free stickers

Cons: Not open every day

No one working on a Saturday afternoon

Beautiful last Summer weather hurrah today, Saturday September 18th: 82°F. Arrived at 3:15pm excited to try multiple scoops between my ice cream fanatic bf and myself. It seems they’re located as a stand-alone operation inside the Végétalien storefront at 504 Main. The girl working the juice bar said no one was there “to scoop” which essentially seems they didn’t show up for work and the other business is not going to open up their register to operate on their behalf. I do wish them well and understand life stuff happens sometimes.

Still super disappointed after a 90 minute trip to Beacon and have no idea if they’ll even be open in the Autumn should we make a return visit so soon. :(

I hope to update my review in the near future!

Some of best vegan ice cream out there!

The Vegan Stuff doesn’t disappoint. It’s creamy and delicious in over 40 flavors that are on rotation. Some flavors have alcohol in them along with classics like rocky road and mint chip. Made with cashews, oat milk and organic coconut oil. Every flavor is true to its name and everything doesn’t taste like coconuts or almonds!

Pros: Lots of flavors, Creamy, Fun toppings
