New York's Van Leeuwen Ice Cream has been rolling around Los Angeles for over a year in a truck, but they're finally ready for their brick & mortar debut tomorrow in the Arts District's gigantic One Santa Fe project. From 1 to 4 p.m. tomorrow, they'll dole out free ice cream scoops for anyone in the area, so be ready to line up for some fine fresh confections.

The artisan shop will boast 26 flavors at this location, with classics like vanilla, pistachio, chocolate, and salted caramel plus innovative takes like honeycomb, vegan banana nut, and cookies & cream. In addition to scoops, they have a selection of crafted sundaes like the ginger caramel crunch or the "New Yorker," mixing espresso ice cream, fudge, and cacao nibs.

They'll open every morning at 7 a.m. serving a full lineup of Toby's Estate Coffee, with service until 11 p.m. Weekends commence at 9 a.m. Van Leeuwen was founded in 2008 by Pete Van Leeuwen, Ben Van Leeuwen, and Laura O'Neill.
