Time Out says

This vibey ice cream shop is shaping up to be another trendy late-night Echo Park hangout.

Some people like their ice cream with a side of apple pie, or maybe a shot of espresso. If you’re El Prado’s Nick Fisher, the perfect pairing just might be some horny goat weed or any of the other supplements available for sale at Fluffy McCloud’s, his new late-night scoop shop just across the street. Nightly, local characters dressed in styles from every decade—from Y2K to the Roaring Twenties—flock to Fluffy’s for vegan-friendly ice creams and the quirky interior, which draws inspiration from 1950s soda fountains and writer M.F.K. Fisher’s description of Downtown’s Pig ’n’ Whistle location (long gone). The gleaming all-mirror walls offset a giant Saturn-shaped lantern overhead; there’s a demonic juke box, a Lactaid candy dispenser and a horned ice cream case; and banana splits and scoops come in classic silver-hued ice cream dishes. Made with organic dairy and minimal stabilizers, the ice cream itself is delicious as well, from the Thelma’s vanilla to the “pistachioyoyoyoyoyoyoyoyoyoyoyo” made with Italian pistachio paste.
