New York City Ice Cream Parlor Kaylee’s Creamery Is The Hot Spot for a Cool Treat

If you haven’t been to Kaylee’s Creamery, we encourage you to stop what you’re doing, close your computer, and amble over to 115 East 27th Street.

Kaylee’s cotton candy blue-tinted banner beckons newcomers and stirs up your taste buds with fond nostalgic sensations, and the heavenly scent of a fresh batch of waffle cones is sure to lure you through the door.

Keene, Kenneth, and Sam, college buddies turned founders, birthed the idea of Kaylee’s while toying with popular deserts around the world. That led to an epiphany: their true fervor lies in the confines of a three gallon frozen tub. While their friendship and mutual love for ice cream created a special relationship among the three owners, the bond was sealed with the birth of Kenneth’s daughter, Kaylee—an event so unifying for the trio, that she became the trademark for the shop. It was inevitable that Kaylee, with a face so sweet, would become the company’s icon and Kaylee’s Creamery was born.

The ice cream shop is home to an array of creative flavors that transcend those of its contenders. The intense flavor profile of this ice cream is unparalleled, and it can be credited to the quality of their product and minimal ingredients, free of artificial sweeteners, preservatives, and all of those questionable additives you probably can’t pronounce.

The menu caters to all ice cream aficionados, with fun options for the adventurous, such as “Spice Spice Baby” (a pumpkin spice medley with a gingersnap pie crust), “This Little Piggy” (maple syrup ice cream with glazed candied bacon pieces) for a more elevated palate, and of course, staying true to the classics with flavors like “Choco-lit” and a decadent “Rocky Road.”

Critics seem to agree: Vicky, a Queens local and Kaylee’s enthusiast raved, “I’m in the area a lot due to work, and this is by far the best thing on the block. They never disappoint. The flavors are interesting and always good.” Have we mentioned the waffle cones? Perhaps Nikhil, a Chicago native summed it all up, noting, “I have never had such a good waffle cone in my life.”

Summer may be coming to an end, but any diehard ice cream lover can appreciate that ice cream knows no bounds (or seasons). To top it off for you locals in the city that never sleeps, they’re open very late.
