Among all of New York’s great ice-cream shops, OddFellows pushes hardest against the conventions of frozen treats. Sam Mason has served chorizo-caramel ice cream, found a signature flavor in miso-cherry, and doesn’t hesitate to create unusual combinations like tobacco, smoked chile, and huckleberry. (Yes, that’s one flavor.) The physical stores emphasize originality, too: As Mason and business partners Mohan and Holiday Kumar have expanded, each location has allowed for a different idea of just what OddFellows can be. The third one, on Houston Street, is called Coffee & Cream, and it’s, yes, a combination ice-cream shop and café that serves ice-cream-and-coffee drinks that go far beyond milkshakes and traditional affogati. Even the coffee has unusual twists via infused milks, like one made with burnt marshallows and another that tastes like Thai tea. There’s a full espresso bar, pastries, and a rotating selection of ice-cream flavors, but the main act is the Coffee & Cream menu. Everything in that section is made with both coffee and ice cream, and in typical OddFellows style, nothing is all that straightforward. Even the simple espresso con panna isn’t just coffee with whipped cream but comes with a flavored cream that will rotate regularly. (Saffron-cardamom-pistachio is the debut flavor.) There’s also a coffee-and-cream soft serve that will change, depending on what kind of espresso is being served, and a café liégeois that, Mason says, is “like a parfait,” a composed dessert with coffee-crunch ice cream, coffee soil, whipped cream, and wafer cookie.
