There is a new ice cream shop in town, and thank goodness for that, since the part of town it's in is Williamsburg, a neighborhood that has until now been absurdly lacking in ice cream options. Recent years have seen the opening of a branch of 16 Handles as well the Williamsburg Creamery, and of course if you walk far enough north, you will come to Van Leeuwen. But none of those quite filled the niche of downtown Williamsburg real ice cream in the way that Odd Fellows does.
Odd Fellows is great. You walk in and you can feel confident that this is a place that is legitimately into ice cream.
They don't offer a lot of chocolate options, but we will forgive them this because they do offer a lot of creative options, such as "Beet with Candied Pistachios and Honey Goat Cheese." Also they change their menu daily, so there's always a reason to go back to see what they have now.
I got a scoop of the Toasted Marshmallow and a scoop of the Chocolate Chunk. I was trying to make an ice cream s'more, apparently. No big surprise there.
It was very solid ice cream. Very solid indeed. And much-needed in this heatwave! I would go back any time.
BOTTOM LINE: A welcome addition to the Williamsburg ice cream scene.
