Van Leeuwen Ice Cream is big contender for our favorite ice cream shop next to Salt & Straw. It's located in East Hollywood right next to UCB Franklin. After you see a show you can show your ticket on the same night to get a 20% off coupon for their ice cream so it's a perfect post-show ritual. But, of course, ice cream is an "anytime treat" so go whenever!!
They have a menu of their regular ice creams and a separate menu for their vegan selections. Some are also gluten free. They also have a rotating special menu which features some of their more experimental flavors. Our personal favorites we've tried from their main menu is Honeycomb and Mocha Cookie Crumble.
The store has friendly employees and have a small section for you to sit and eat. It's a sweet little shop and we highly recommend it!
