One of our last summer outings ended with 4 seas. A quintessential summer experience. Longs beach days are so much sweeter with this Classic Americana treat. .

Long lines, but well worth the wait. Mint chip is my favorite and yes, it's pink! I recently tries the ice cream cookie sandwich and is too was fantastic.

You can eat lunch here, stop by for a cone, or have a couple of pints or quarts hand packed to take home. At busy times there are lots of servers so the wait time is never terrible, even if the line goes out the door to the parking lot. The variety of flavors is excellent (30+ - just guessing).

The ice cream is delicious and creamy, huge variety of flavors from chocolate almond to peach to refreshing cranberry sherbet, my most recent discovery.

My husband found out that this ice cream parlor is one of the 10 best in the country so we had to go since ice cream is his favorite dessert! It is a very old fashioned restaurant set in a gorgeous town. The ice cream was very, very nice. Especially the cantaloupe one! Sandwiches were also quite good!
