Kids liked visiting here. They enjoyed the books and read while eating ice cream. The ice cream was just ok.

Cute little ice cream and coffee place in a cute little downtown. I had ice cream, so I can't attest to the quality of the coffee, but I enjoyed my sundae a great deal. The ice cream was very good, though the choice of flavors was fairly "standard", and the man behind the counter was very pleasant. They get a... More

If you grew up with a local ice cream store instead of the big chains, like I did, you'll love thinking back to your childhood by going to zebra striped whale. Cute neighborhood ice cream place that has a 2 cases of ice cream flavor choices, and tons of toppings. They mix it together similar to a cold stone creamery,... More

With good competition from Goodnoe's, this comes out on top because it has more flavours and a nicer area for sitting. Our daughter gave the thumbs up as the best ice cream she had on this trip - high praise indeed. I have to say, the "Jersey Shore" (vanilla with salted caramel) and the "Gold Medal Ribbon" (dark chocolate, vanilla... More

Lines are too long and prices are too high for the value. Opens at 11 for coffee? Ridiculous. Are you selling books or ice cream? Choose one.

We came with kids at 9:30pm on Sunday for some desert. We did not know they were already closed for the day since the door was open. The staff was very friendly and the whole ambiance was very nice. We had all the time we wanted, never were rushed or anything like it. Kids got giant marshmallows and juice boxes,... More

Zebra Striped Whale has lines almost out the door in summer months. They have a cute seating area in the back with local artists' work for sale on the walls. Thomas Sweet ice cream is for sale and you can order your toppings mixed in which is a big hit. They also have baked treats, though their ice cream concoctions... More

This is an interesting neighborhood ice cream shop with comfy seats and tables in the back and local artists pictures on the walls. There is delicious ice cream, tea and confections. The shop is on the main street of the borough of Newtown. You can window shop while you eat.

We had ice cream and sorbet. The flavors were good. The store was cute. Great comfortable seating in back. The displays were very attractive. Everyone inside was having an enjoyable time.
