Fodor's Review

This combination bakery, ice cream parlor, and sandwich shop offers quick-serve access to chef David Chang's cultish pork buns, along with some truly psychedelic treats by pastry whiz Christina Tosi. Swing by for a kimchee croissant and a glass of "cereal" milk, or for treats like the curiously flavored soft-serve ice cream (cereal-milk, lemon verbena), "candy bar pie" (a sweet bomb of caramel, peanut-butter nougat, and pretzels atop a chocolate-cookie crust), one of the addictive cookies (try the "compost" cookies, with pretzels, chocolate chips, and/or whatever inspires the bakers that day), or any of the intriguing savories (the "volcano" is a cheese and potato pastry that is impossible to eat daintily).

Your grocer has superior frozen desserts

You imagine an adventurous, gourmet experience. Instead, you get awkward, do-I-have-to-be-here people taking your money and handing you a child's size soft serve in the "Cereal Milk" flavor. Tastes like cornflakes...and not in a good way.
