Comment: Cauldron is an ice cream store that recognizes that the fact that ice cream is the best thing in the world is not enough to draw customers, and thus innovated both aesthetically and gastronomically.
Not only are each liquid nitrogen serving of ice cream made to order, the way their cones fit snugly in their paper containers was almost too perfect, each circular puffle (which is something that you do have to pay extra for, though it is well worth it) a bite oozing with nostalgic cakes of my childhood, of vanilla, milky. If you are like me, you would pair it with the stumptown coffee they sell on the side, for the bitterness adds infinite complexity to the taste altogether.
This sun moon and stars flavor is a delicious mix of oolong, jasmine and green tea with an irrelevant blue color that clearly was leaning more towards the aesthetic, contrasting with the miniscule sparkle of stars.
