We were staying at Big Boulder for a few days. Went out for a drive and grandson wanted ice cream. We stopped here, but he said he didn't want soft serve. Since they had pumpkin, hubby and I decided to get a cone. It was awful! It didn't have much shape to it and started melting right away. The worst... More

What used to be a truly excellent soft ice cream place has devolved into a less than mediocre one. The changed the soft ice cream mix they use. I know because I immediately tasted the difference so I asked the young woman who works there and she confirmed it. It tastes totally artificial. It doesn't taste anything like the old... More

I'm very sorry you are disappointed with the change to the soft serve ice cream. We changed our mix to a farm owned fresher, cleaner, and much more healthy mix. The other mix was filled with preservatives to create a longer shelf live. Here at the Junction we strive to serve fresh quality foods. We are sorry you do not... More

Yum - best ice cream place up here! Be prepared to wait but it is well worth it. We tried the pumpkin soft serve - they do seasonal items - and it was amazing!!!

We had tried to go somewhere else that was not open so we decided to go to The Junction since we had driven by here numerous times for ice cream. I had my heart set on it. It was around 1:30 in the afternoon. We were served and it was so yummy. We had sundays. I said something to the... More

We loved this place! First of all, our daughter is vegan and they have 24 flavors of non-dairy soft serve to choose from. She is thinking of driving 1 hour with a friend just to go back for more! Way to go for serving such a variety!!! The rest of us are regular eaters and we loved it too. I... More

We stopped here on a Pocono Sunday drive and we were so glad we did. Staff is super friendly and the food is good. My husband really enjoyed his chili dog. We both got burgers. The tiny patties are cute and we still felt they were filling. One of the best chocolate malt shakes that I've had in a while... More

Best stop on Pocono Mountaintop for an after dinner treat. The Junction has been serving up sweets and ice cream for as long as I can remember. Limited menu but super family fun ! Milkshakes are excellent.

A must stop for dessert. They have a large variety of ice creams, both soft & hard. We all got medium soft on cones with jimmies. They were good size & tasted great.

Recently changed ownership and the size of their ice cream varies significantly depending on who serves you. We miss the "old" Junction, but we can't beat the location!
