With its last renovation in 1948, entering the Lexington Candy Shop is like taking a trip back in time. This vintage luncheonette serves locals and tourists alike. Stop in for a burger, but be sure to try the classic ice cream creations, such as malteds, egg creams, and floats. Lexington Candy Shop is located at 1226 Lexington Ave at 83rd Street.
This ice cream shop has been open for over 28 years. Its owners take ice cream making very seriously and serve up the delicious treat with pride. They have “original flavors” flavors such as cherry pistachio, black sesame, and zen butter and “exotic flavors” like wasabi and avocado. Chinatown Ice Cream Factory is located at 65 Bayard Street.
Possibly the most famous Manhattan ice cream shop, Serendipity 3 is known for its decadent and oversized desserts. The Frozen Hot Chocolate is a must try, and also leave time to check out the store where you can grab chocolate treats as well as fun toys. Serendipity 3 is located at 225 East 60th Street.
