KindKreme, a vegan ice cream and desert shop, opened its Echo Park outlet today in the former space once occupied by the raw vegan restaurant Mooi, which closed late last year after only a few months. Today’s cold and rain was not ideal for frosty deserts. Still, vegans and the curious came by to check out the two-story, corner space, which will also house a vegan cafe scheduled to open on Saturday. In addition to vegan versions of ice cream, the KindKreme menu also includes shakes, juices, coffee drinks, vegan brownie sundaes and raw chocolate truffles. Even if vegan cuisine is not your thing, those giant windows overlooking Sunset Boulevard and Logan Street make this a perfect people-watching space for what promises to be a rainy weekend.
