Little Damage's dramatic, black ice cream cones have been all over the internet lately. They are definitely photogenic. I was surprised to find that even at 1:00 a.m. on a weeknight there was a fairly long line, people coming in right before closing, and people taking their Instagram photos of the cones out on the street.


The flavors have names like Unicorn Tears, those which you have no idea what it is supposed to taste like. The cones are colored black from activated charcoal. There are plenty of patterned black, white and neon spots to take your cone shots. The employees wear tshirts saying, "I licked it so it's mine". 


We tried the Dark Cinns, a thick and creamy soft serve which looks like poured concrete. I am guessing it might be black sesame. While the texture was rich and decadent, I have no memory of the taste. The waffle cone was crunchy and delicious and the toppings add to the texture and look. We chose a crunchy almond topic which gets sprinkled on top of the cone.
