CoolMess is a fun, new make-your-own ice cream parlor from the folks behind Burger Heaven. We did a little research before arriving, and discovered that the full Burger Heaven menu was available for lunch. Isn’t that great? Everybody can line their stomachs with actual food to avoid being thrown into diabetic coma. That’s exactly what we did before my six year old got busy building his ice cream concoction. Lucas chose a chocolate base (the other option is vanilla), and added brownie bites, cookie dough, and a side of chocolate sauce. He LOVED the whole experience, but I’m not gonna mince words here – it is also crazy expensive. We rang in at just under $90 including tax & tip after two cheeseburgers, fries and the $25 make your own ice cream activity. Personally, I think that’s special treat territory. It’s the kind of thing you do once or twice each year, certainly not everyday.We’re home this week though on Spring Break so we’re living la vida loca.
Other important details…One make-your-own bucket of ice cream serves two very enthusiastic kids easily. That makes CoolMess an experience best enjoyed with a friend. And of course, you’re just blocks from Central Park only minutes from the zoo. Might as well make a day of it!
