Little Man Ice Cream

This sweet parlor is located inside a giant milk jug, and all the ice cream is hand-made just a few blocks away. In the summer, salted Oreo and Mexican chocolate are favorites. In the winter, some hits don't even involve ice cream such as pulled pork or mac and cheese inside a savory cones (of the plain, flaxseed, and parmesan garlic variety). And for every scoop of ice cream you buy, a three-ounce scoop of rice is donated to different international food charities.
