Mary's Dairy - The Queen of Cream

POST #    1048

Mary's Dairy is a relatively new ice cream shop in the West Village and it's got one really good reason (in my book) to go - they will put ice cream on a Krispy Kreme doughnut! For those so inclined, they also carry banana splits. They have a bunch of unique flavors that a more traditional ice cream parlor wouldn't have. It kind of reminds me of Rice to Riches in the way that it takes something traditional and makes the product and the store fancy. I actually overheard someone else actually say the same thing while we were there. The "Double Creme", as I think it was called, was a scoop of ice cream on top of the doughnut. It was insanely sweet, but quite delicious. I think I became a diabetic just eating it. Prices are a little more expensive than a normal place, $5.25 for the doughnut thing, but it's almost an experience going there.

I thought their logo was very interesting. Take a close look. What does the ice cream look like? And she's the "queen of cream"...I'm just saying.

Mary's is at 171 W. 4th St, between 6th and 7th.

The Times has a small blurb about Mary's Dairy (scroll down to "Frozen Cream de la Cream"). Sandy, was actually the flavor I had on my order - chocolate with pistachio halvah.

I think I just felt my cholesterol skyrocket vicariously.

I was planning on heading over there this weekend, is it worth checking out?

Oh my god, that doughnut ice cream thing is the scariest thing I've seen. My heart screeched to a halt and then I gained 30 pounds just looking at it.

Tien, I admire how you high metabolism people can just consume anything without guilt.

I'd definitely go on a date with the Queen of Cream.

victoria, i would check it out for those cool ice cream seats alone!

keith, i might have had some heart palpitations after finishing the concoction. and i think my metabolism is slowing...but maybe it's just my slothful lifestyle. after i move, it will be better.

greg, she's totally hot.

the queen of cream? that logo is a bit suggestive. i wouldn't date her, but i think flatgreg and i are on the same wavelength. [we're pervy?]

yes janelle, that's what i thought the logo implied too...but for the area, you would think it would be a guy being the "queen of cream"...
