Brooklyn-based Van Leeuwen Ice Cream, known for its vegan varieties (10 at a time) as well as its 18% butterfat ice cream dips (14 varieties), is opening its first Philadelphia location on Aug. 18 at 13th and Sansom Streets with scoops, shakes, sundaes, and coffee/espresso.
This location is a former Capogiro, the gelato brand that was similarly uncompromising with ingredients.
Until then, Van Leeuwen’s truck is stopping at various locations on Aug. 12, Aug. 16, and Aug. 17 to dish out samples.
