  • Review by veganmarcy on September 17, 2010:

  • Last night I checked out Stogo and had the friendliest service in NYC. I'd read all the reviews here beforehand, and a lot of the info needs updating. For example, it's not cash only. I charged my order, and there was no minimum payment in order to charge. And like I said, the friendliest chick ever was behind the counter and was happy to give samples all day. my ice cream choices tasted great mixed together: Coffee, Cardamom Pistachio and my FAVORITE hands-down, Cinnamon Raisin Cookie. Hard to picture, easy to love. I made orgasmic sounds of joy eating it. The cocoa-agave truffle and the babycakes red velvet cupcake were not as much my cup of tea. The lavender-based macaroon, yum yum yum! The lavender cupcake was better than the red velvet, FYI. But the main reason to go here is clearly the ice cream. Gourmet goodness. I love the taste of the espresso in the coffee one. mmmmmmm!

  • how can i express to you how delicious STOGO is!?
    i legitimately cannot get over my experience at this soon to be east village staple. i went in and sampled about 6 flavors; mint chocolate chip (a soy based flavor) salted carmel pecan (soy), toasted almond joy (coconut milk based), hemp maple walnut (hemp milk based!!!!), and two other soy-boys which i ended up getting-- cardamon pistachio and pomegranate chocolate.

    OH MY GOD. the pistachio flavor was so rich and creamy with this robustly sweet yet refreshing taste to it. the pomegranate chocolate was tangy and smooth and had just the right amount of vegan chocolate chips running throughout it.

    needless to say, i will be back to STOGO just as soon as i can! the storefront was clean, the employee behind the counter was incredibly helpful and friendly.

    this place is great!

  • You're much better off going to Lula's on 6th between A and B.

    The owner of Stogo is a nutcase. They have a $10 credit minimum, which isn't legal (no credit minimum is, at least for major credit cards), and after I explained this to her she made up a lie about how she spoke to Visa and they assured her that she could have a minimum.

    Also--who is going to buy $10 worth of ice cream? Granted, it's way overpriced, but that is still an unreal amount.

  • An incredible experience, the ice cream was amazing and the staff friendly and generous with the samples so that I could try all the delicious flavors. The atmosphere was fun and they are all organic and use biodegradable spoons and cups. Gotta say, I love this place more than Lula's....

  • We tried Stogo a couple of weeks ago. The ice cream was really great, but the service and atmosphere left a lot to be desired.

    We weren't greeted when we came in, and the place itself is very unwelcoming.

    Another downside is the plastic. It's your only option there. They don't even offer cones.

    Ice cream is really good, but that's about it.

  • I don't know why, why, why I decided to try Stogo again rather than just leave well enough alone. But, I did, and I wasn't amused. The Salted Caramel Pecan (their "most popular" flavor) tasted like accidentally salted vanilla ice cream. Their Bananas Foster tasted like pureed, overripe bananas. I was going to buy some chocolate truffles to get the tastes out of my mouth, but they were $4 (!?) each. The server was very nice and cheerful, but the atmosphere is too trendy and mainstream for me.

  • Stogo's delicious nondairy ice cream in creative and staple flavors is kind of unbeatable. They are most generous with the samples. Just one suggestion, Stogo: more seating.

  • Review by myfi on August 17, 2009:

  • i've only been there once, and i do definitely prefer lula's for the atmosphere and add ins and cake batter soft serve...
    that being said, this was probably some of the best vegan ice cream i've ever had. i got salted pecan caramel and it blew my mind.
    also liked the presence of babycakes, and though i didn't have any they had about 15 different vegan chocolate truffles and goodies in a cabinet as well.
    the whole place feels very sterile though. and the server was indifferent.

  • Review by beautifuld1rt on June 16, 2009:

  • I brought my omni friend here for some vegan ice cream i had a strong craving for some vegan pistachio ice cream. When i got there the guy at the counter [who was the sweetest thing and let me sample whatever I wanted =D] told me that the flavors rotate so at times they don't have all the flavors listed on their site at the same time.

    After sampling, I got the peanut butter fudge and the red velvet, which infused what appeared to be a babycakes red velvet cupcake [+1]. [Cost $4.65] My omni-friend thought the pbf could have been better, he's still on the search for a delicious one. I thought it was fine [3.5/5], I wouldn't buy it again though. The red velvet, although I enjoyed it, didn't really taste like anything, chocolately or otherwise, it just tasted like vegan cream. the cake was dry [typical of babycakes cupcakes] but the frosting was delish [also typical of babycakes cupcakes].

    tl;dr version

    pros
    - great service
    - babycakes, except on monday
    - creamy ice cream
    - bright atmosphere plus benches outside to take in the lovely weather/views of st. mark's church.

    cons
    -slightly expensive but manageable [good for the occasional treat]
    -hit or miss with some of the flavors
    -unpredictable selection with rotating flavors [i don't know what the 'staples' are at stogo.]


    Since lula's was closed that day, we couldn't do a comparison. :( I've heard better reviews from there. I wouldn't mind going back again, although the medium [2 scoops] was a bit small for me, considering a girl passed by us with a HUGE bowl of ice cream from the parlor across the street, but thus is the sacrifice for yummy vegan treats.

    added note, small = 1 scoop, medium = 2 scoops, large = 3 scoops.

  • I am a die-hard Lula's fan, but I did want to give Stogo a try. I was pleasantly suprised by the ice cream: the toasted coconut almond joy was divine. The server was pleasant and cheerful, the but the guy hanging around (owner?) was aloof & disinterested. Again, the ice cream was very good but the whole vibe of the place seems to be: "Look how hip we are serving vegan ice cream; don't you want to eat here like Kevin Bacon & Kyra Sedgewick?" (photo near the front door). Contrarily, at Lula's the owner treats you with warmth, kindness, and a million acts of special attention that lets you know that it's a labor of love. Lula's is definitely the shoppe to go for the very best homemade sundae/cone/shake/float/egg cream served with class and pizazz. Stogo is more of a mainstream cup of ice cream that is made in a factory in Long Island and shipped to a store owned by non-vegans.

  • Review by capevegan on March 17, 2009:

  • My daughter and I checked out Stogo recently. She had strawberry (soy) ice cream and I had the pina colada (coconut) ice cream -- but of course, we had to try each other's. Delicious! I only wish I'd been more assertive about trying flavors before we ordered; I'd have liked to try some of the other flavors too.

  • Ohhhhhhhhhh soooooo gooooood!
    I love how conscious they are of vegan and environmentally friendly products there (dishes, food production, etc). The girl at the counter gave as many samples as me and my friend wanted, much to our delight! Every flavor there was awesome. I love the homemade-gelato-type ice cream.
    I will surely be back....and soon too!!!

  • Review by halfie on February 12, 2009:

  • Yes, the ice cream is super tasty. I had the pomegranate chocolate chip, and my boyfriend had the pistachio with cardamom, both delicious. What's extra appealing, even beyond the genuinely friendly service and generous sampling policy, is their level of commitment to quality. One of the co-owners (Steve) was there when I went in, and I chatted with him at length about the ice cream. He's adamant about not adding any refined sugars to any of their ice cream, in addition to using all natural ingredients throughout their products, including for the coloring (for instance, spinach to make the pistachio ice cream green). He's very passionate and earnest about offering only the best, and it shines through in the delicious flavors. He also mentioned that they'll be rolling out a hemp-milk based ice cream soon!

  • Review by champurrado on February 2, 2009:

  • How can I really complain about another vegan ice cream parlor?!! That being said, this is a review, so let me break it down.
    Pros:
    --bright, cheery place
    --excellent service--they let you try any and all flavors you want to
    --they carry babycakes!--good little selection of their cupcakes and cookies

    Cons:
    --No cones, sundaes, syrups, or ooey, gooey icecreamfest stuff (for your chocolate brownie, hot fudge, marshmallow cream banana split, you'll have to go to Lula's). They just do straight up ice cream in a cup, and their toppings are all raw and slightly spartan (soynuts, goji berries, granola).
    --They had a little bear shaped bottle of honey next to the soy milk for your coffee! What? That's just inexcusable for an (almost) all-vegan establishment that uses agave nectar for all of their ice cream.

    Other tips:
    Definitely try the flavors before you decide. Some look great but weren't worth it in my opinion (personal fav=chocolate hazelnut).
    Also, they take credit cards if you spend $10 or more

  • Review by parrca50 on January 7, 2009:

  • My wife and I went here recently and did not know what to expect. The service was excellent, they allow you to test any of the ice cream you'd like. This comes in handy because all the flavors sound/look amazing. We didn't mind that it was snowing outside, we happily walked through the snow eating the incredible ice cream. I'm glad I don't live around there anymore, or I would probably find myself there once a week (probably more). If you're in the area check it out, even if you're not hungry, its so good, you'll be happy you made the trip.

  • This place is amazing! Best gelato-like ice cream outside of the dairy-filled stuff I ate while in Italy. They offer a wide variety of flavors that are all unique. I am also glad to be able to get some Babycakes cupcakes without making the trek to the Lower East Side. This place is very dangerous for my waste line. The owner was there when we went and he was very courteous, friendly, and genuinely excited about his products. Everyone should run to Stogo.
