Blossom Ice Cream — 75.6 decibels

Blossom Ice Cream is a relatively new shop featuring Thai rolled ice cream.  Essentially, the ice cream is made after you order–the base is poured onto a frozen surface, mixed with some ingredients, scraped into a roll about the thickness of a roll of quarters, placed in a cup, and doused with whatever toppings you request.  It’s visually appealing, and there are some theatrics if you enjoy that sort of thing.  In the end, the ice cream was good, but not great.

Blossom is very live as there is a lot of glass. Dance music was planning in the background when we visited, but it wasn’t too loud.  We thought the sound level was manageable, especially given how live the space is, but then Very Loud Guy came in and shouted his order. With all the glass in this tiny space, he quickly filled the room with his voice, and we found it hard to concentrate on anything other than his banter.

Blossom Ice Cream should be tolerable if other patrons use their indoor voice, but all you need is one very loud person to make it uncomfortable. That said, with only one table for four and two stools,  the space shouldn’t top 80 decibels even when every seat is taken. But why take chances? Order your ice cream to go and try to score a seat on the small bench out front, or walk one block to lovely Cobble Hill Park.
