Two slices of pie and some icecream

New York style pizza. The slices are big and tasty. They serve Gifford's ice cream so I am always happy when I leave.

This isn't just a tourist trap, it's also where the high school kids go to hang out! The food is overpriced and mediocre at best, but the location keeps the doors open. They do have good ice cream, but would recommend driving up the street to Doorman's for a better experience. They sell pizza, sandwiches, and soups but there is... More

The place has gone down hill under the new management, use to make great grilled cheese and other great food. I could make something better at home at half the cost. 6.50 for a grilled cheese? Not worth the price.

This place had good food but it has too many problems to ever go back. Aside from having only three tables that seat 3 people each and a counter with some stools, the food prices are so crazy that it's like a bunch of first graders decided what they would be. My husband ordered a small soup and a sandwich.... More

We went here for lunch. I had the chicken caprese and my husband had a BLT. They were delicious. It was a great place for lunch! I would definitely recommend a sandwich. Oh and get the fresh squeezed lemonade.

I don't eat dairy and I can always find a delightful treat here. Local flavors abound and the range of ice cream offered is outrageous. Fresh baked goods, soups offered in vegan options and gluten free yummies. Love it.

Of course their ice cream is wonderful, but we also tried their mushroom and miso soup and one of their sandwiches, both of which were excellent. Thorndike's has the nicest and most courteous staff and that is the main reason for posting this review. I hope they never change.

We have been coming to Rockland for 6 yrs. now and often stop by Thorndike for ice cream. This time we stopped to grab a quick bite. The sandwiches were very good along with the pizza. Nothing fancy but it was a place you can count on for good food and ice cream.
