Sometimes Hump Day requires a shake to the routine. I took mine this morning at Van Leeuwan's ice cream shop on East 7th Street and 2nd Ave. If you're looking for a break from the freeze-dried Starbucks pastries, and the watered down Dunkin' Iced Coffee, you are ready for Van Leeuwans. Famous for their ice cream and even more so for their Ice Cream Truck that dots the trendiest areas of NYC, they offer not only homemade, vegan, and all natural ice creams, but their menu also included freshly baked pastries from scones to croissants, and cold-brew Toby's Estate coffee, which is made locally in Brooklyn. I enjoyed an iced-coffee and a crispy croissant while planning out the rest of my week. What will you be having on your next morning get-away?
