I had a poor experience here. The flavors they offer are only available in a dish, not a cone, because they stir syrup into the vanilla soy soft serve with a flurry machine. Stirring it like that turns the mixture into an unappetizing soup. The syrup or the ice cream had an artificial, almost chemical aftertaste that was so unpleasant I ate less than half, despite feeling badly that I'd spent so much money on it. Grocery store soy ice creams and those I've had along Cayuga lake are far superior. I'm sorry to say I won't be back, I was looking forward to having more options in the region.

Was so happy that they had an ice cream parlor that offered vegan self-serve right in Watkins Glen, New York!!! I wish they had something like this in Chicago!
