After lunch at a nearby restaurant, we got ice cream at The Bent Spoon. It was an extremely hot day. The person working at the counter informed us they were out of cones, which was probably a good thing given the heat. (We ate our...ice cream in a small nearby park with tables and benches.) Servings are 2 scoops. I had coffee with cookies and milk chocolate. Others in our party had other flavors... all delicious and super creamy. Interesting flavor combinations, including chocolate with rosemary. The cups used are uncoated paper, and the spoons are wood. Environmentally friendly. Makes it easy to feel good about splurging!More

Place is jammed. Due to COVID, they are set up to take orders and deliver the treats on the sidewalk. Take a number organization. It works. And the ice cream is among the best I've ever had - one chocolate and one vanilla. Classic

This is "fancy" icecream. It's delicious but it's not your run of the mill sugar on candy sundae. I do wish they had their menu posted outside as the line geta very long then you feel rushed when younare finally get inside and can see...the options.More

This place works every time. Great seasonal choice of ice cream and sorbet. . Generous serves. The staff was great and willing to let you sample. In summer there's almost always a line but its well worth the wait.

Fantastic quality and flavors. The line is usually moderate and can be crazy long but moves quickly, and totally worth waiting anyway.

Saved room from dinner to have a cup of homemade Bent Spoon famous ice cream. The chocolate mint was good but left a film in the back of my mouth. The peppermint was just to overwhelming. The last time I traveled to the Bent Spoon...the chocolate orange was delicious. I’ll be back but next time I will taste 1st.More
