I love ice cream. I am addicted to it. I love exotic flavors - the more exotic the better. I've been to every ice cream parlor in the city and, IMHO, Cool Moon is be far the best -- so far above Salt 'n Straw I wouldn't even dare to make a comparison. I will keep coming back until I've... More

Cool Moon makes all their ice cream on-site. Their flavors are very good, and the ice cream is rich and creamy. The staff are always friendly and accommodating. We take all new comers there.

We were told by a restaurant nearby that the ice cream was good at Cool Moon, so we walked over. The flavors were different, but they were very good. I had the Belgian Chocolate and my husband the Salty Caramel, both on sugar cones. Mmm... We'd definitely go back for a quick lick!

I've cream AND coffee?! How could my world get better! Such great flavors. I couldn't decide, so I got two flavors - salted caramel and Thai iced tea. Both were excellent. They have all kinds of coffee too. There are a few chairs outside in case you came with your furry friend - but someone still had to go inside... More

Very sugary, but good. Not someplace I would go out of my way for, but good. Also offers espresso, espresso drinks, sundaes, floats, and moon pies.

Cool Moon is like the salutatorian who had about the same grades but was passed over for being less flashy than the valedictorian. The ice cream is very good and there are many varied and flavorful selections. The cones are fresh and crisp and the scoops generous. I like how I can choose from subtle and sophisticated flavors like rosewater... More

Four of us visited Cool Moon Ice Cream and after we all had a good share of tastes, we picked our favorites. My favorite flavor usually had something to do with chocolate and I have to say that the chocolate ice cream was perfect! Fantastic taste and creamy texture! I highly recommend Cool Moon!

Perfect location next to Jamison Square. After having your children or grandchildren frolic in the fountains just cross the street for a wonderful treat. The flavors change frequently (and some times your favorite will not be there, unfortunately). Cash brings you a discount. If in the area and crave a treat, do not miss Cool Moon

This is a nice little place to come for dessert. The ice cream is handmade and there are so many choices. The people are friendly and it's perfectly located across the street from a nice little park. It's a great family oriented place -- you'll be happy you came here!

Great ice cream that is all natural and made right there! I tried the Salted Carmel and it was delicious! Another great point...they serve samples with real mini spoons, so there is no waste with plastic wear. Nice touch! If you are enjoying the Pearl District be sure to stop by!
