As soon as you walk into this cheerful family-run ice cream shop, you're greeted by the smell of fresh-baked cakes and the vibrant colors of cool sorbets and yogurts. The owners pride themselves on their hand-churned and certified-kosher ice cream and their family-friendly environment. Flavors range from regular coffee and cookie dough to Smurf (blue raspberry with marshmallow) and Garbage Can (candy bars in vanilla ice cream), and can be combined into custom ice cream cakes. Hours change with the season. — Carrington Fox
