Excellent service: both of the personnel were very patient and kind. Food was great! 2nd to best vegan restautant I've been to so far. Not a great variety in their menu as of food food but when it comes to icecream, hmmm, great options! It was the first time I heard of vegan icecream, "coconut bliss". I personally didn't fully...

Karma Cream is excellent. If you aren't vegan, the ice cream is still amazing, although there are dairy ice cream as well. Yummy toppings and they also sell local coffee! The staff is super friendly and I always feel welcome. Prices are very steep but its worth it for what you're getting. Love this place.

Wow. It was so nice to walk into an Ice-cream shop and have a variety of real Icecream options (aka not some measly shaved ice) including chocolate chip cookie dough, chocolate walnut brownie fudge, and at least 10 others. Not only that but ALL OF THEIR TOPPINGS ARE VEGAN! Chocolate fudge, whipped cream, homemade cookie dough marshmallows, gummy bears, peanut... More

I had the very BEST vegan ice cream sunda here. I wish I had been able to go back every day of my visit. They also had the most delicious looking baked goods. I did get a vegan jerky to take back to my hotel and it was amazing. The two young people who worked there were also terrific. I... More

I am Italian and a lover of gelato indeed. Well, when I am traveling I enjoy ice-cream but I often have hard time finding a decent one. This one here is good. I loved the texture, choice of flavors and the pretty big variety of vegan alternatives. Be advised: the coconut milk-based vegan is thick and heavy!..perhaps heavier than the... More

After a great dinner, our server recommended Karma Cream for something a little sweet. They had all kinds of treats ice creams including healthy stuff...we opted for a carrot cake cookie sandwich, most excellent. Student dominated but def. some locals, go support them and enjoy!!

The ice-cream is really good, even the gluten free variety! The staff were friendly and the atmosphere was great.

If you come in the morning, you gotta try their Breakfast sandwich. In the evenings, go for their delicious milkshakes. Karma Cream also has exceptionally friendly service.

I love this place. I am vegan and it is located right by my dorm in college. They have sandwiches, ice cream, coffee & tea, and pastries, and can also make sundaes and milkshakes- all vegan! (They offer dairy too) The best part is that the food actually tastes good- really good. I just wish they had soups!

After the Gators chomped the Rebels, Dunkin' at Target Copy had nobody at the register, and Krispy Kreme and McDonald's had lines out the door. We walked another couple blocks down University and came upon a great experience at Karma Cream. There was only one party ahead of us. I ordered the Maple Spice Latte. It was absolutely lovely and...
