Sweet Treats To Beat The Heat On Pride

Marching for Pride is hard work. Why not reward yourself with something tasty along the way?

By Harry Hantel

As you navigate New York City's Pride march, stop at any one of these joints for something cold, delicious, and perfect to bring along for the walk.

Spot Dessert Bar (W 33rd between 5th and 6th Ave)

A classy dessert bar combining Asian and American flavors. The best part? It's right at the start of the march so you can either sit in for some tasty tapas, or grab an ice cream sandwich for a rush of sugar to last you all (or part) of the day. We won't judge.

Maison Kayser (W 21st between 5th and Broadway)

Maybe you walked the first 15 blocks and found that you already need a pick-me-up. Lucky for you Maison Kayser is right on your way. An iced coffee and any of their lovely baked goods will have you up and at 'em in no time.

Liquiteria (17th between 5th and Broadway)

Catering to trendy types all over Lower Manhattan, Liquiteria has cold pressed juice options that will quench any thirst. The perfect way to cool off on a hot, Pride-filled day!

Chloe's Soft Serve (17th between 5th and Broadway)

Soft serve made from fruit? Skeptics be warned, this healthier take on ice cream is de-lish. If you're in a hurry to get back to the march, grab one of their yummy popsicles from their freezer.

Big Gay Ice Cream (Grove St between Bleecker and 7th Ave South)

Okay, okay. You're probably thinking, "That's so obvious." But just because something is obvious doesn't mean it's not a good decision! BGIC is located close to the end of the march route (right by the Stonewall Inn), so you can conclude your day with some well earned sweetness.
