I was in the East Village, and since we're in the middle of a heat wave (heat waaaave), I decided to get some ice cream. I googled something like 'best ice cream in east village,' and the hacks at Thrillist.com had recommended Davey's Ice Cream as the best in the neighborhood. So I went in and got a cone of cookies 'n cream, which was like $5, and it was....okay. Pretty average, really.
Verdict: Pinkberry or Cold Stone would've been a lot better.
You can get your over-priced ice cream from Davey's at 137 1st Avenue.
