Welcome to the neighborhood Van Leeuwen Artisan Ice Cream Store!

 

I thought I'd post a quick note to announce a new face in North Brooklyn. On Saturday, the wonderful folks at Van Leeuwen Artisan Ice Cream opened the doors to their first ice cream store in Greenpoint, and as a welcoming present to the neighborhood gave away free ice cream and samples of baked goods. What a great first impression!

You might have heard of Van Leeuwen already - their beautifully renovated mail trucks have been serving up ice cream all over Brooklyn and Manhattan for the past two summers.

As I've noted several times on this blog, the vanilla ice cream they produce is probably the best vanilla ice cream I've ever tasted. So, if you're in the neighborhood, be sure to stop on by the new Van Leeuwen store - you won't be disappointed.

I have heard really good things about this ice cream store. The family is from my home town in Connecticut.

Van Leeuwen is amazing. My heart always beats a little faster when I see one of their pastel yellow trucks in my neighborhood. I'm so happy they have a store now - bring on the elastic waist pants!

James - Damn you for mentioning doughnut ice cream sandwiches! I hadn't thought about making one before and now it's front and center in my mind. Food coma is imminent:)
