NileGuide Expert tip:
Get a scoop of ice cream during summer hours at their stand on Governors Island, too!
Eco-friendly treats abound at this Prospect Heights spin-off of the original Atlantic Avenue location. Choose from about a dozen ice cream flavors, all handcrafted by an upstate farmer—from the adventurous Conscientious Chip (organic vanilla and dark Ghanaian chocolate chips) to the more traditional Stick-o-Butter Pecan. If you're a fan of fro-yo but bristle at the laundry list of scientific-sounding ingredients at most chain purveyors, go for the tangy, refreshing Culture: plain frozen yogurt made with only Ronnybrook Farm yogurt and a little evaporated cane juice. Baked goods from Red Hook's Baked, bagels from Bergen Bagels and free-trade coffee round out the menu. Even the biodegradable cups, dishes, spoons and straws have earth-friendly cache.
