Dark Chocolate or dulce leche – Not great for a group and the serving portions are small but worth the 3 bucks for a small. There is also no seating in the store so its best if you just grab and go.
Only If You Want the Taste of Sugar! – My best friend and I tried four different flavors at Cones the other night. Everything tasted the same, just like sugar. What a waste of time and money! I had heard that the owners of Cones, the DAloisio brothers, brought the technique of "made-from-scratch" ice cream and sorbets from their native Buenos Aires. I had also heard that they trained with a master gelato maker in Buenos Aires for four months, before bringing their product to New York. I've been to Argentina on many occasions and they certainly know their ice cream and gelato down there. In Argentina, where the population is largely Italian, the taste for ice cream is similar to that from Italy. Therefore, people in Buenos Aires take their ice cream very seriously. Argentinean ice cream is some of the best in the world! These Argentinos need to return home for more lessons on how to make this product properly. I probably will never return to Cones, unless I'm just passing by and decide to try a FREE SAMPLE of their "zabaglione / sambayon" flavor. I've heard it's good. But, then again, I heard Cones has great ice cream. I guess those people Only Want the Taste of Sugar!
AMAZING gelato!!! – So I walked in here as I was going down Bleecker with a friend, and I wasn't going to order anything but my friend wanted gelato... but since we were in, I figured I'd try some anyway, since gelato is one of my favorite things EVER. So I tried the tiramisu and I swear, I almost cried. It was absolutely AMAZING and had truly captured every essence of good old-fashioned tiramisu. And then I tried the hazlenut which was totally great too. So then I ended up getting both because they were just obscenely wonderful. DEFINITELY worth going to!!!
for selection, and quality cones is the best, plus the location is great, only three blocks from my house, I love the sorbets dairy free, and they carry like a dozen.
without a doubt, that guy that wrote about the green tea flavor doesn't know that in most of south american mate is prepared mostly sugarless.
and you call yourself a fan of green tea?
Great gelato – This place gets pretty busy on summer nights and for good reason. Their gelato is creamy and tasty.. although a bit more expensive than your typical ben and jerrys. However, service could be given with a smile by the older gentleman. Try it if you like icecream! The tiramasu and almond icecream are great.
Great Gelato & even better sorbets! – You won't remember that a Sorbet has no milk or fat of any kind when you have a taste of any flavor of sorbet at Cones. They use real fruit, not condensed juices- the rasberry is particularly yummy.
The Gelato is dense and tasty too.
It is pricey, but remember that gelato has almost no air, while ice cream is loaded with it, so you are actually getting more taste per scoop than you would with ice cream. Just a small scoop is very filling.
Really nothing special – Ice cream is ok, but not really that great. Also a relatively small selection of flavors. Not sure what all the hype is about.
weird green tea – I am a real green tea fan and I was really excited to see that there was Brazilian Green tea. I was soon disappointed when I tasted it and it was bitter when I was expected something sweet and creamy. My friend got tiramisu and it tasted like vanilla fudge which was really weird.
The place is really trendy but the portions are really small. Your paying for the decor but not the product.
the BEST! – My boyfriend and I am in LOVE with Cones. Our favorites are the Pistachio, Chocolate Chip and Tiramisu.
User review by lyonsandweazels – Cones is the perfect place to finish off a lunch or dinner. Have great pizza at John's just 2 doors away and get a scoop of Almond Cream and Coconut (my favorite) to top it off. Melts in your mouth like nothing other!!!! Delicious!!!!
