Frozen yogurt/gelato/ice cream around Tribeca?

lchang Aug 4, 2007 12:50 PM

Looking for a frozen yogurt or ice cream or gelato shop in or near Tribeca that I can walk to on these warm evenings for a scoop. I know there is a Tasti D on Chambers around Bdwy, but I'm not a fan. I'd love something closer than walking to Pinkberry on Spring/Lafayette.

    This is a Ciao Bella at the World Financial Center, right opposite to Godiva.

      Does the Financier branch in the financial center have gelato? the one on Stone St. does and it's outstanding.

        Hi nokitsch,

        Unfortunately it does not. But now you get me to go to the Stone St. branch for the gelato!

        By the way, on South End Ave, there is a little deli shop that has Sedutto ice cream, if you are interested

          Haha, you should! It's excellent (my sin). It's by the entrance opposite from the Stone St. one (forgot the street, Pearl?). Or if you walk off the Stone St. entrance, walk through the entire place to the other side.

            Do you know if the Financier on William has gelato?

            If you want to walk further East on a nice night, Barbarini on Front Street (btw Beekman and Peck Slip) and Acqua (Peck Slip) have some kind of Italian gelato or ice cream.

              Not sure, but Zeytuna does, at least during lunch hours. It's more expensive than Financier though.

                thanks, nokitsch. I called Financier on William, they used to have gelato, no more.

        Bazzini on Jay St and Greenwich used to have a soda fountain and ice cream. Haven't been there in months so not sure anymore, but that used to be the best local bet.

          Forgot to mention the Soda Shop, on Chambers near West Broadway, where Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory used to be. Best bet of all.

            Thanks all for the suggestions.

            Just went to Ciao Bella tonight. Good blood orange sorbet, and it's open til 9 every day. Unfortunately Bazzini closes by 7 on weekdays, and earlier on weekends. Ceci Cela has a selection of sorbets (or maybe gelatos) but closes early too.

            Will definitely check out the Soda Shop. I've been meaning to see what it's all about. Hopefully it stays open late.

            Also, just read that a Flurt frozen yogurt will be opening on South End Ave. Sounds promising...

              don't forget that 'wichcraft has their ice cream sandwiches, but not sure how late they are open until. not quite a scoop, but pretty good nevertheless.

                    what's a wichcraft? I guess I need to walk West more often . . .

                    Just remembered Chinatown Ice Cream Factory. On a nice night it's a lovely walk from seaport north, tribeca, etc.

                      'wichcraft is the sandwich chain from Top Chef dude Tom C's Craft enterprises:


                      quite nice sandwiches actually, some interesting combinations, obviously more expensive than your local deli, but very fresh, some good combos and garnishes.

                    I wasn't aware they had ice cream there, but I checked it out today for lunch, and sure enough it seems there is a rotating flavor of ice cream sandwich. Great to know. I find their sandwiches to be quite tasty with good quality ingredients.

                    I'm pretty sure it does close around 7 or 8 though.

                    Walk to the B'way Bloomingdale's for their awesome yogurt.

                      Really? I wasn't aware there was a frozen yogurt shop in the Broadway Bloomingdales. I love the one at the uptown location. That would be great to get it closer to home.
