Everyone knows ice cream tastes best when it's churned by bicycle. There’s something about a little exercise that makes your sweets even sweeter. Peddler's Creamery, now with a storefront in hip DTLA, has capitalized on this universal truth. They offer house-made (and often customer-churned) ice cream, sorbet and vegan desserts prepared with local and organic ingredients.
Edward Belden, Peddler’s founder, started his sustainable-centric creamery as a single bike unit that could be set up all over Los Angeles. In 2012 he ran a successful Kickstarter campaign to open a brick-and-mortar in Downtown LA and now sweet-seeking foodies can swing by, peddle up a small batch and enjoy quality ice cream.

Wonderful spot in DTLA! All of the ice cream is churned by bike, and the entire shop has a very cute bicycle theme. They have vegan options and while the scoops aren't super big, they are extremely flavorful! Every time I've been, the workers have been kind and attentive. It's never crowded so it's a great, quiet place to sit and relax.
Peddlers is a tiny place with a big heart—big enough for my ice cream appetite. They don’t make you feel guilty about taking samples, which is a huge plus. After sampling my way through their selection, I ordered a double scoop of lemon cookie and lavender (two separate flavors). I imagined a twee AF scoop of lavender ice cream sandwiched between two lemon cookies, and reality did not disappoint. The girl working behind the counter was also really helpful and generally pleasant. This is the kind of place I would take my parents because they like trying new things, but are scared of places that are too trendy. This place walks that line, but is ultimately pretty chill and not too overwhelming.
