Hey everyone!! I just wanted to slide a quick blog post your way because I came across the cutest spot in LA for a cool treat! Cool literally because it’s soft serve (so duh!) and cool figuratively speaking because as far as I’m concerned anything Instagram pic worthy is pretty darn cool! And that’s exactly where I came across this little gem of a place. Instagram. The spot is called Little Damage in Downtown Los Angeles and they have small batches of the most interesting flavors. But these aren’t your regular chocolate and vanilla flavors. The flavors they had the day I went where Vegan Mango Sticky Rice, Unicorn Tears, and this beauty right here:
Me and the bestie Brittnay ended up at Little Damage after a day at DragCon, with all the fabulous Queens!, in DTLA. We knew we’d be in the area so we had planned on going to see what all the Instagram hoopla was about! I mean, who wouldn’t be intrigued….? Now initially I wanted to go because the charcoal colored soft serve that I kept seeing was called Almond Charcoal…don’t quote me on that name. So when I got to see the menu I saw Black Roses which looks identical so I purchased it. I would describe Black Roses pretty much as the name states: It tasted like vanilla and roses with a hint of charcoal on a charcoal cone. Pretty tasty. Before I even got my cone they allowed us to sample other flavors. The Mango Sticky Rice wasn’t bad at all! I passed on getting that one because it was a sweetness I wasn’t in the mood for. And they had all these different toppings like sprinkles, coconut flakes, fruity pebbles! I opted for the Oreos. YUM! Everyone on Instagram was posting pics of these delicious ice cream flavors but not one person posted a picture of the monstrosity of a line that we had to stand in! Yes…. we waited in line for about an hour. I don’t know if this is an everyday thing or if we just chose to go on the busiest day of the week. Clearly everyone in the city ad the same idea as we did! Once we got inside I could see how cute this place was. It is a pretty small shop and it has such a cool Zen vibe with minimalist colors, cute decor and little plants. I was not in blogger mode that day so I didn’t take pics but just take my word. CHILL. Now to keep it 100 with you all: Was it worth it to stand in line for an hour and pay $7 for some charcoal colored ice cream. Eh! Maybe not…But I regret nothing! LOL. But would I do it again… Probably not! I’m convinced, we Angelenos, pay for a hip,trendy experience. And to put cute pics on our Instagram feeds! LOL
The customer service was good and I guess they were going as fast as they could considering how many people they were servicing. So if you’re in the area, with a lot of time on your hands and some coins to give away, I’d suggest you try it!
