Vanilla ice cream nothing, the blue ice cream itself in the Cookie Monster is cotton candy-flavored (AND pulls the cotton candy flavor off brilliantly). The mint ice creams from this place are ace, too!

Serendipity Homemade Ice Cream offers ice-cream noshing beyond the norm for the dairy-treat connoisseur unimpressed by the everyday sugar rush. Nearly every flavor boasts of something novel — the shop's take on classic cookie dough is "Cookie Monster," which combines cookie dough with cookies 'n' cream, all swirled through vanilla ice cream in a lovely shade of Muppet blue. Craving chocolate? Well, there's "German Chocolate Cake," "Old Fashioned Chocolate," "Chocolate Cake Batter," "Chocolate Peanut Butter" and "Gold Coast Chocolate." And last but not least, perhaps the most popular flavor, "Gooey Butter Cake" ice cream. The air-conditioned indoor seating area has more than tripled — in September 2008 the shop adopted a small space to its west, doubling its size. This is in addition to the already abundant outdoor seating behind the store, which features lovely shade and a generally cozy atmosphere.
