Old fashioned ice cream bars are almost something of the past. There’s not too many around anymore. Now it’s much more common to find a fro-yo bar, with all you can pile on toppings. In fact, a new one of those just popped up by my house, and is now my son’s new favorite weekend treat. And as good as the fro-yo is, I do want to have a good quality indulgent ice cream once in a while.
An old-fashioned ice cream parlor has the atmosphere that takes you to a different time and place. The feel of the establishment transports you back in time with their furnishings, decor and ice cream treats. The type of ice cream they serve is rich, delicious, and made with love. They will also have a variety of other treats like malts, ice cream sodas, sundaes, and milkshakes.
All these ice cream parlors listed below are family owned.
