Whoever said ice cream was only for a treat for kids has clearly never tasted the 31 flavors of Baskin Robbins, a world-renowned cake by Carvel, or even just an ordinary chocolate cone on a so-hot-you-feel-like-you're-gonna-melt day in July.
So when the sun is beaming and you're looking for some relief, there's no better place to be than licking an icy cold cone from any of these local eateries.
Who said ice cream is just for kids? With sports memorabilia splashed across the walls and regular on-site autograph signings with sports legends like Yogi Berra, any kid at heart can enjoy their favorite flavors with their favorite athletes. Hours also last until 10 p.m. on the weekends, making this the perfect spot to grab dessert after a trip to the movies.
There’s nothing like a Carvel cake, so if you’re looking for a great way to celebrate a friend’s birthday, look no further than this Boston Post Road address. Milkshakes and soft ice cream by the cup or cone is also available.
Homemade treats have made this eatery has been a town staple since 1995. Indoor and outdoor seating also make it the perfect place for some cool relief on a hot summer night.
Tasting remarkably similar to conventional ice cream but with less calories, this self-serve yogurt eatery offers toppings sold by weight with 12 fruit and other dry and candy toppings.
This national favorite for years has a Halstead Ave. location, so it's no surprise that kids and parents come in troves by the dozens all year round for a double scoop or milkshake.
