Sugar Rush: Brownie Sundae at Lula's Sweet Apothecary

This venue is now closed.

We first checked in with Lula's Sweet Apothecary back in late 2008 when the vegan ice cream parlor first opened. Both vegans and non-vegans alike flock here for intense flavors and fresh ice cream churned out in small batches.

Options range from milkshakes to flurries and hot chocolate--all impressively dairy-free. However, my heart lies with the brownie sundae served in glass bowls. The pictured one includes strawberry, banana walnut-chocolate chunk, and peanut butter ice cream with brownies on the bottom, and whipped cream, chocolate sprinkles, and a cherry on top. It comes with two scoops, but ambitious bellies can easily throw on a third. Even when it's ice cream temperature outside, this sundae should put a smile on your face.
