Every once in awhile I stop by Brewsters for a treat. It's the only place I know of where you can get a black raspberry ice cream cone. Yes they have young inexperienced help, yes it takes a while to get sometimes, but hey, you're there for a treat, relax and enjoy it.

We stop at Brewster's quite often. I really only like their Double Chocolate Chunk and they are out of it too often but since they give my dogs "doggie sundae's" we continue to go.
