“so reasonable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2014

For some reason, other than ice cream, desserts are scare in Rockland so we came for ice cream. They serve Gifford's which is very good and the prices were so low--at least compared to the Boston area.
They also serve pizza which we didn't try but it looked pretty good.

“Relaxed friendly spot for icecream or small bite. ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2014 via mobile

Stopped here for lunch as we headed home after a 5 day stay in the area. Great space and very nice and friendly staff. We ordered pizza and blt's. pizza was good but very soggy crust. We are from NYC so our pizza standards may be unfair. Blt's were very fresh with amazing bacon and tomatoes. We ordered one blt gluten free and the bread was inedible. Turned out to be a roll that was still cold (presumably from freezer) and it crumbled when bitten or handled. Really good place otherwise.

“Pizza and Ice Cream”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2014

Awesome staff at Thorndike's. We had pizza which was good, not out of this world or anything like that. One unknown fact about Thorndike is that they have a fairly organic menu which is not advertised.
Did not have time to try the ice cream this time, but last time we were there it was very good with a lot of flavors to choose from.

“Really liked this restaurant!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2014

I review by the type of restaurant, not by five star restaurant criteria, and that is why I'm giving five stars. This is a little corner cafe, not the Ritz Carlton . If you are snobby, stop reading now and look for another restaurant ;-)
Food: a good variety....pizza, and not just typical pizza, lots of toppings, great crust, soups, and not just seafood chowders, sandwiches, great ice cream (Giffords, which I understand has a great reputation, well deserved!), coffee drinks.
Wait staff are genuinely friendly and considerate.
Seating was what I would expect, two larger tables and counter seating by the window allowing for great people watching.
The only downfall was the restrooms...they were very clean, but you had to travel thru the kitchen with an employee escort to get to it! I refuse to take off stars for the restroom...these guys are in the restaurant business, NOT the restroom business!
I don't care for chains restaurants, I like individuality. I would most definitely stop for lunch or snack next time thru and recommend it.

“Great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2014

Good ice cream treats. we had to wait a bit for the ice cream order to come in. But the wait was worth it! The moosetracks was really tasty! The pistachio was excellent! The salted caramel with pretzels was the best!
