It's an old time ice cream parlor that has been around forever and a day. The ice cream is homemade and wonderful. Never ate anything else

I went to Krishch's for breakfast with my grand daughter. IT certainly has that old time luncheonette look and feel about. My grand daughter thought it was really cool - counter stools that spin, pictures on the walls of old time Massapequa etc. I ordered a basic scrambled eggs, toast, home fries and bacon w coffee. My grand daughter ordered... More

Krisch's reminds me of the type of ice cream parlor I went to in my childhood. There aren't many family-run businesses like this left. The food is homemade, the portions are generous and the ambiance is nostalgic - think 1950's diner. The menu is huge and the selections diverse. You can order most any sandwich on a pretzel roll, which... More

Old fashioned at it's best. An ice cream parlor, but also so much more. A great meal any time of day. Reasonable prices and homemade quality. Love to browse the chocolate selection at Easter. You can't go wrong.

People and the service are great. The food is very good. It is "Dinner" type food, not fancy but tastes great. The dessert ( Ice Cream ) quality and selection is what brings me to Kirsch's. The last time I went was to bring my three grand daughters. They loved it. They want to go again. ASAP

And today's youth too. Really really popular ice cream parlor and luncheonette. But popularity has not diminished the experience - always comfy. At a perfect little nexus of of a "downtown"-like Massapequa, convenient to all. Any fountain treat any way you like it. High quality ice cream. Some of the best whipped cream I've had and very generously applied. And... More

Had the deluxe breakfast wrap, it was very good! The service was also very good! The atmosphere had a fun 1950s vibe and it has been around for a long time. I will definitely be back.

Right on Central Avenue and two blocks north of the Massapequa train station, this has been known to be a hangout of some of the acting Baldwin brothers... Really good ice cream and a great place for a great sandwich as well.

Krisch's has a great breakfast menu but their home fries are some of the best on Long Island. They offer breakfast/lunch/dinner. Their selection is typical of a diner but the quality is much better. They also have homemade ice cream in approximately 30 flavors with all the options of the soda fountains from the 50/60's. Service is good to excellent... More

Took the family out for some ice cream. This place was like an ice cream shop from the 50s. So retro ! So many flavors to choose from. The small sundae is huge so if you order large, will be very filling. I got mint chocolate chip with peanut butter sauce and hot fudge. Pure heaven, great homemade chocolate. Wait... More
