The best vegan ice cream I've ever had....it's a very adorable shop with some cute/creepy original art decorating the walls. It's also conveniently located in downtown Elmhurst for maximum ice cream eating/people watching entertainment.

The sugar cone is vegan, but the waffle cone is not.

A suburban ice cream shop that offers four flavors of vegan ice cream daily, as well as sorbet? I'm impressed. Elmhurst, in general, is a good place for vegans (check out the vegan cupcakes at Heavenly Cupcake Shop, 162 N. York Street), which is highly unusual in the homogeneous, philistine suburbs of Chicago.

I had a large single scoop of mint chocolate chip and cookie dough ($4.75). It was Chicago Soy Dairy ice cream, which personally isn't my favorite (I like Soy/Almond/Rice Dream better, or So Delicious brand), but it's definitely creamy and sugary.

I didn't ask about the vegan status of their cones, but next time I will. All in all, Brain Freeze is a positive sign for vegans in the Chicago suburbs.
