Why locals love it

Picture 1921 Ice Cream Parlor that hasn't drastically changed since 1921. They are one of the longest small business operators that are still going strong to this day. Their fudge is killer. Their ice cream is very well balanced. For someone like me who doesn't enjoy sweets I go gaga for this place.

Why you should visit it

Its a 1921 Parlor. Its a very romantic date place. It is made to impress. It is filled with character and their ice cream is too good to be true. But Alas the experience is real! It is fun with groups of people and it is a great after Ramen at Wasabi place because of the excuse to walk and the proximity.

Special tip

Take the blue line. Order their famous "Turtle" and have with fudge. JJ one of the servers is very charming.
