“Soft Ice Cream at Its Best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013 via mobile

If you enjoy soft ice cream that is creamy, fresh, and flavorful, you will not want to miss this Adirondack landmark. My Dad used to take me there during the 1950's, when we were spending summers on Upper Saranac Lake. My wife and I are keeping the tradition going this summer with our granddaughter. You would be hard pressed to find a better ice cream cone anywhere, and good luck finding any true Adirondackers who does not know about Donnelly's.
