There is a throwback gem of an original "sweet shop" in Forest Hills Queens that is probably one of a kind in the NY Metro area. I attended my granddaughter's 3rd birthday party there and it was a great experience. This place is 90 years old and is now run by the 3rd generation owners who bought this place from... More

If you like ice cream, and who doesn't, this is not to be missed. A blast from the past. Even if means taking a subway out to Forest Hills from downtown Manhattan. You can include a movie at another landmark, the Cinemart, just across the street. But the homemade ice cream, whipped cream, etc. are, as New Yorkers often say,... More

Those of us who grew up in Brooklyn may remember Jahn's ice cream shops or Karp's on Flatbush Avenue. They made their own ice cream. There were small white tiles on the floor and a tim celing. Well, Edy's harks back to that same time, looks the same and has homemade ice creams, fudge, caramel, marshmallow, and whipped cream toppings,... More

Old Fashioned Ice Cream Shop - from the Gay 90's. This marble bar and spinning wooden stools have been here for 125 years - you can tell this by how small they are - not made for today's big American Butts. Original metal dishes with glass inserts, pressed iron ceiling tiles, ice boxes, homemade ice cream, real whipped cream. Ah... More

Original worn out uncomfortable counter stools are not quaint. They're simply uncomfortable. The ice cream tastes like it has a granular substance in it. How this was ever a popular place is unimaginable.

Milkshakes like they used to make them, ice cream in all the flavours and whipped cream - felt like we'd stepped into a different time. Service was great.

This is what ice cream parlors used to look like....an old counter with stools and a few tables in back but best of all - great tasting ice cream sundaes, shakes, malts, etc.....all the treats we had were terrific! There was a little line developing when we were leaving so you may have to wait a bit if your timing... More
