I've been coming here for years and never disappointed! My favorite flavor is maple walnut - yummy! and I usually get a coffee ice cream soda with maple walnut ice cream. I've brought many friends here and they also think it's a find. Last time I was there I had an extra thick chocolate shake - it was worth the... More

If in Rego Park, or Forest Hills Queens NYC, this is a bucket list stop. I don't believe it has changed once in my 30 + years of going here, just getting older. Same soda counter, tables and old time Ice Cream pallor. The Ice cream just taste better here. tons of flavors

The service is a little frustrating as is the wait but this is one of the ever shops I've ever been too. The ice cream and whip is better then the norm.
