Van Leeuwen Ice cream truck

Van Leeuwen Ice Cream Truck
6th Ave & 22nd St
New York, NY 10010

Van Leeuwen proudly displays the big red bag of Intelligentsia coffee that's roasted especially for them in the front window of the truck. I'd be proud of that too if I were serving such a great blend of coffee. $2.75 for a large and it's very smooth. Obviously 2-3 times the price of the typical coffee from a truck but really far superior to starbucks.

Number 1 - I normally don't get coffee from an ice cream truck. For those bashing their coffee service there are Starbucks and multiple places close by for caffeine consumption throughout the day. Since I did see multiple people ordering coffee from them while waiting on line I have to assume it is decent. Number 2 - Their ice cream is terrific. Creamy, great flavor, superb quality. So many great exotic flavors to choose from. Currants and Cream, Earl Grey Tea, Ginger, Cinnamon, and others. A bit pricey for a small cup at $3.95, but worth it for a once in a while treat. Extra toppings will run you an additional dollar or so. So close to Madison Square Park that you can get your ice cream and walk across the street to sit on a bench and enjoy.

It was parked right in front of Starbucks, so...of course, why not? Great positioning. It was too damn cold for ice cream, but my latte hit the spot to guide me through an afternoon...and I didn't throw $4 at corporate coffee. Win! In a truck.

For those that are curious, it's NOT only a Coffee Truck but they do sell Ice Creams too. I've been to the one located in Meatpacking District many many times and glad they are in Chelsea near where I work. Now that it's summertime and the weather can be a bit sticky and humid, I'm gonna try to frequent this Truck to get the Earl Grey Ice Cream for an afternoon snack that is just so perfectly creamy with the right amount of sweetness. Wish they had the Basil + Black pepper ice cream that was pretty interesting or just simply Basil Ice Cream which is definitely refreshing!

Been coming here for about a week now. The coffee is good. Way better than Starbucks and no line. They also have ice cream!

The Van Leeuwen's new coffee truck is a great addition to their family ice-creme trucks. The espresso is good, but euphoric when pored over their vanilla ice-cream in the "Affogatos." Screw all coffee-flavored ice-creams of the world, settle only for the affogato.

Hazelnut ice cream, with REAL Hazelnuts. The fact they offer this out of a moving truck and the ice cream doesn't leak out of the sides means Van Leeuwen, whoever this guy is, did not fail at life. A must have and the fact it is parked across the street from Eataly means only one thing: GELATO FIGHT!

I know it's a coffee truck, but try their ice cream. It's quite simply stunning. At 3.45 for a single cone, it's a good deal for gourmet ice cream. Fav flavs.. not to be confused with the clock guy.. earl grey, mint choco chip, and ginger. I will be back for more.. if I can chase them down.

I don't know if this is the right truck but Coach sponsored them today and they gave out free ice cream! The whole truck was covered with coach logos. I had the ginger ice cream, at first I was skeptical since it was ginger after all, but I'm glad I took the risk. It was amazing!!! I wouldn't mind paying next time. ;)

Not sure how often they move this puppy but there is also one at 5th ave between 15th and 16th. Here's the thing about coffee - its really most important at the START of the day. So they don't open until 8a which means I mostly won't even be here by that late but occasionally, after a big night, I'm sluggish to get to work right on time. What better occasion to stumble over to the Van Leeuwen coffee truck and grab some high quality Joe? Apparently its just not that occasion because being ready to serve coffee, even by 8p is too tall an order for the hipsters. And their coffee is good, not great. And seriously, get yer @ss to the coffee spot on time. Give me a break here.

For those of you who like your hot chocolate not too sweet but not too rich and thick either, this truck is for you. Using Ingredients of superb quality, this freshly prepared comforting drink has the perfect creamy consistency without being super thick, and a robust chocolate flavor that's not overpowering. I love the dark Michel Cluizel chocolate they use, which has a flavor very well suited for a drinking chocolate, in my opinion.
