Little Damage – DTLA
What: Little Damage
Where: Downtown LA
For: All Ages
Little Damage is a family-owned ice cream shop right in the heart of Los Angeles. Known for it’s black ice cram and black cones, its creations are an Instagram Lover’s dream. After following the shop for a while on social media, Ethan and I decided to try it out for ourselves and were pleasantly surprised.
The Ice Cream
When we came to Little Damage, it was around Halloween, so they had ice cream options/colors/toppings that fit with the holiday. It wasn’t very busy when we walked in around 2:00pm on a Sunday, so we were able to chat with the staff while sampling different flavors of ice cream. What I really enjoyed about our experience was that all of the ice cream is hand-made every day with organic ingredients. There is always a vegan option available for patrons who are dairy free. Also, those awesome-looking black cones are made with activated charcoal and created fresh in-store.
Ethan and I chose two different Halloween-themed ice creams and went into the photo booth (free!) to take pictures. We loved how our ice cream looked so much that we had to take pictures of it around the store. The only problem that we had was that the ice cream and cones were so rich and large that we were only able to eat about half of both before we were completely full.
The crowd varies in Los Angeles. During the work week, there are more adults and during the weekend there are more families and younger adults. The great thing was that whenever I saw someone walking around with a black ice cream cone, I knew exactly where they came from!
Each ice cream with waffle cone cost us $7, so you can expect to spend less than $10 per person when you come here. I definitely suggest everyone check out Little Damage if they are in Downtown Los Angeles…if not for the amazing tasting ice cream than for the photo opportunities!
