Great flavors, you can taste the freshness

Incredibly fresh ice cream. Lots of great choices and everyone I have tried I have loved. I think German Chocolate Cake is my favorite. They are renovating right now but they manage to still serve people quickly. They have cute seating areas too, to relax and enjoy the ice cream.

Meolas is an old fashioned ice cream shop that is hard to find today. There used to be many of these dairies/ice cream stores, but they have faded away. This is local ice cream made in an old fashioned way. It is a seasonal business so check before driving to this location.. There is a wide range of flavors and... More

Ah, Meola's - a sign that spring & summer are finally upon us! They are a cash only business, but have an ATM on premises. They have a TON of flavors. I have been recently sticking to the frozen yogurt, ya know, trying to be good. ha ha. I have had the black raspberry chip yogurt & the mint cookie... More

My family and I had been enjoying our time at the parlor, when a large group of high school students arrived, loud and disruptive, vandalizing toys meant for young children. After trying to, unsuccessfully, to wait "storm" out, we decided to leave. I reported the ongoing behavior to the owner, but he just shrugged it off, saying that "you could... More

one of the best ice cream stores in central MA. Unfortunately it is not open year round. Would highly recommend their bear claw flavor. They take only cash and sometimes the quantities of the ice cream fluctuate a lot.

I always love finding small places like this that still make home made ice cream. I wanted my kids to get a taste of the real stuff, so I drove an extra 10 minuets rather than going to the near by dairy queen. The ice cream was great, and there was a large variety to choose from. The only down... More

Having just finished a most pleasant dinner at The Mill in West Boylston, we walked next door to Meola's for ice cream...mostly for the two kids in our party, but almost everyone wound up with at least a small cone. We were very impressed with the unusually wide choice of flavors (all of it apparently home made and unique to... More

It may seem expensive, but the kiddie size is what you would normally consider a two scoop medium sized ice cream. Amazing flavors and the service is quick.
