I absolutely love Emack & Bolio's ice cream (try their sorbet's, too) but their prices are outrageous. 4.50 for a single! Our family would visit more often if their prices were more reasonable...making more money for them.

Declining dessert in a neighborhood restaurant, it was suggested that we head to Emack & Bolio's for a post-meal treat. And, indeed, the selection of in-house ice cream, their generous, albeit expensive, portions, and their creamy consistency topped off an evening out in Albany. Emack...More
