Foursquare Tips

  • Don't come on a Monday - they aren't open, but they are open the other 6 days of the week.
  • Cash-only; there is an ATM on site
  • Did you know you can order a drum of ice cream for your next summer party? They give you the tools to get all that serving done too!
  • Try the large 3 scoop to go called the 'Candy Bar'. It's Milky Way, Mounds and Heath Bar. Yum!
  • Milky Way ice cream - Wow! Not vanilla with chunks of candy bar, but nougat ice cream with ribbons of chocolate and caramel. SO good!
  • Go on saturday mornings - it's more relaxed and less crowded than Sundays. Great place to take your kids.
  • get the newtonite!! 20 to 22 scoops of ice cream, pineapple sauce, strawberry sauce, coffee sauce, rum toffee, hot fudge, whipped cream, and a cherry for $36
  • The mellowcream fudge is a must-have topping.
  • Tropical frappe is awesome.
  • Clown sundaes for the kiddos
  • Egg Nog French Toast! Omg! Heaven!
  • Absolute decadent splurge - coffee almond fudge on a warm belgian waffle. nuthin on top. nuthin better!
  • The Death By Chocolate and Maine Black Bear ice cream are Richardsons... But for some reason they taste better here than anywhere else!
  • Be aggressive. If you don't push and shove, the legions of the self-entitled will trample you while you beg to have your order taken. Very, um, let's say, provincial.
  • If you're lactose intolerant you can get some delicious non dairy ice cream. You can choose from lots of flavors. I reccomend the coffee flavor.
  • Take your kids and have them order a "clown sundae"
  • Very cute place! I had hot chocolate with whipped cream and marshmallow. Sugar Coma :D
  • If you're craving some desserts with cloying sweetness, this is the place! Choose from 70 flavors + 35 toppings. The non-dessert foods taste average at best but I will come here again for the sundaes
  • make your own sundae is a must.. service is slow but friendly
  • Great breakfast at an old school newton diner. Plan accordingly as lines tend to be out the door on weekends and summer nights for ice cream.
