We went to Snowflake every night of a three-day stay in Riverhead. Hands-down best ice cream we've ever had anywhere, and a very friendly staff as well. Worth a stop in Riverhead just to try it out!

A local legend. Often has very long lines. When you go inside they ask for the next “group.” People go together. Really large parking lot. GREAT ice cream. Very rich butter fat content. Worth the price. Hard to pick a flavor.
