For $5, today's side deal gets you $11 worth of homemade gelato from CONES on Bleecker Street. A New York magazine Critics' Pick, this colorful storefront houses Argentine-style gelato made on site.
CONES' menu consists of an array of tongue-tickling gelato and sorbet flavors. Perfectly use the value of this Groupon on a pint of one flavor, two split side by side, or three stacked on top one another ($11 untaxed), which you can bring home for cool savoring. Gelato flavors include coffee mocha chip, tiramisu, almond cream, ginger, and zabayone (creamy Marsala wine flavor), while sorbets feature fruitier tastes such as grapefruit, cantaloupe, and fresh watermelon ($4.36 for small cup or cone of one flavor, $5.28 for a two-flavor medium, $6.43 for a two- or three-flavor large, $7.12 for a two- or three-flavor waffle cone, plus additional tax).
CONES is a cash-only establishment, so any balance owed that is not covered by this Groupon must be paid in cash.
CONES has received excellent reviews from both New York magazine and the New York Times. Grub Street New York documented the saga of CONES' dulce de leche con brownie flavor. The New York Post provides a very positive feature of the shop, and Happy Pig's Hot 100 New York Restaurants ranks Cones among the best culinary delights NYC has to offer. Citysearchers give it a 4.5-star average, and nearly 200 Yelpers give it a four-star average.
- After a few bites, it becomes clear why regulars of the clean, well-lit spot consider it one of Argentina's most winning imports since dulce de leche and grass-fed beef. – Kathleen Squires, New York
- For a departure, you might try the fruit ices, which taste like fruit without the excess sweetness that often makes them cloying. – Eric Asimov, New York Times
- I had the dulce de leche, my goodness it was so good! I was expecting it to be overly sweet since it's caramel but it wasn't. One of the best ice cream cones I've had. – Virginia Y., Yelp
- The ice cream is the best I have ever had! I have had several flavors and they are all amazing! Worth the wait!!! – teach345, Citysearch
