While it's still warm out, order a cup of house made soft-serve at this Soho chocolate shop. Flavors change from time to time; my most recent visit brought a velvety milk chocolate swirled with wattleseed vanilla. More

7 Great Places for Soft-Serve in NYC

Carey Jones 3 comments

If given a choice between soft-serve and regular ice cream, I'd take soft-serve in a second. I'm crazy for its airy-light texture, how it's always perfectly lick-off-the-cone-able. And New York happens to be an excellent place for soft-serve, ranging from treats as simple as Mr. Softee to as complex as coconut soy milk soft-serve or goat's milk orange blossom. Come see 7 of our favorites in the city! More

Daily Scoop: Mahlab-Mastic and Chocolate-Chocolate Mint Soft Serve at Victory Garden

Max Falkowitz 8 comments

A relative newcomer to New York's best ice cream neighborhood, Victory Garden has received no shortage of favorable press for its crisp, light goat milk soft serve. I love it for that, but I'm more intrigued by the Turkish owner's creative flavor, which borrow ingredients from the Eastern Mediterranean you don't often see around here. More

Weir's Ice Cream in Salisbury Mills, NY: How We Spent an Hour Before Adam Kuban's Wedding

Erin Zimmer 9 comments

We weren't especially hungry and definitely overdressed, but when you pass a sign for Weir's Ice Cream, you stop. Actually, sign does not begin to describe the nearly two-story high soft serve cone (with a vanilla-chocolate swirly top, naturally) next to the stand. It was visible from many a street light away, and potentially from space. Ed was driving our Hertz-rented car through the Hudson Valley last weekend when we saw it. I don't think a car has ever parked so fast. More

Soft-Serve Ice Cream Stands in Upstate New York

Brad Thomas Parsons 32 comments

One taste of home I always associate with summer is soft-serve ice cream, especially the classic twist, a sweet spire of equal parts chocolate and vanilla ice cream. More often than not these ice cream stands were attached to a miniature golf course, but even when that wasn't the case, a soft-serve cone on a summer evening was always the perfect way to wrap up the day. Here is a little lickable tour, with stops at: ZEMS, the North Pole, Troops Scoops, Coneheads, and Nicky Doodles. More
