This cone-shaped sweet shop lavishes refreshment on tongues with an expansive menu of soft-serve and hand-dipped ice cream, fresh milkshakes, sundaes, and other savory snacks. After fastidiously scanning through the shop's 13 flavors of ice cream, transport dollops of sub-zero black raspberry or sumptuous peanut-butter weave ($2.79 for a regular serving) to your mouth via sugar cone ($.25 extra), waffle cone ($.75 extra), or frosted particle accelerator. Handmade milkshakes ($3.75) rescue jaws from the taxing duties of mastication, and cookies ($1) and funnel cakes ($1.75) succor sweet teeth sans the threat of orthodontic-headgear hypothermia. Those looking to maximize flavor variety can enhance icy eats with toppings such as rainbow sprinkles, gummy bears, skittles, and broken cookies ($.50 each).
I love the resturant. it's a place were I can continue to be a kid and have fun everyday while doing what I love to do. My staff and I tend to go above and beyond trying to bring you the best product we can. We always try and challenge each other to make a product better. We love food and each other. my staff is amazing.
From its Victorian-era brick façade to its tiniest teacup, The Gilbertsville Tea Room is unapologetically pink. It’s a suitable hue for the oft-feminized tradition of teatime. In addition to the color scheme, the tearoom’s three parlors treat dining companions to dainty flourishes such as flowered wallpaper, tiny teacups hanging from hooks and chandeliers, and draping ivy. Teatime is a similarly dainty affair: chefs assemble finger sandwiches garnished with colored cream-cheese flowers and serve flaky scones with Devonshire cream. Thirty loose-leaf teas fill the china, giving upturned pinkies plenty of chances to look refined and signal to tablemates where you'll throw the cup when you're done.
Bagelicious's 20 varieties of dough wheels increase their edible utility by teaming up with 12 tasty gourmet cream cheeses and keeping an arsenal of pastries and lunchtime sandwiches close by. Silky sheets of vanilla-walnut-raisin and peach cream cheese ($7.25/lb.) blanket soft apple-cinnamon or whole-wheat bagel beds ($0.85/1, $4.15/6, or $8/13), offering taste buds a nutritious place to sleep. The bagel sandwich's two eggs and bacon ($3.50) sizzle melodiously, laying a beat for synchronized eating, and pizza trimmings tango atop midday bagels ($4.85). Meanwhile, mischievous apple fritters ($2.20) and muffins ($2.05) let tongues frolic through meadows of sweet flavor while they hot-wire the jaw and cruise away.
Pastry chefstraordinaire Michael Graham, who studied at The Culinary Institute of America, fills the bakery’s burly display case with sweet-laden and fruit-strewn delights. Tear into the sugar-crusted labyrinths of pastries such as linzer tarts ($2.50), chocolate-mocha boats ($2.75), and hamantaschen ($1.95). If you need a pie to throw in the face of a tardy cable repairman, choose from black cherry, southern pecan, coconut custard, strawberry rhubarb, and eight others ($13.95–$19.95). Holiday-flavored dainties include gift baskets and Christmas cookie trays appropriate for festive yuletide gatherings or to be used as oblong-sized stocking stuffers. Savory popovers ($2.75), scones ($1.95), and croissants ($1.95–$3.95) complete the bakery’s motley cornucopia. Cakes are available in 8” or 10” raspberry buttercream ($26.95/$32.95), decadent mocha Nutella ($29.95/$34.95), triple-tiered vanilla or chocolate ($24.95/$29.95), and several other mouthwatering varieties.
Since the first Friendly's opened in 1935, staff members have been serving up hand-crafted ice cream in scoops, cones, and sundaes alongside juicy beef burgers crowned with crisp lettuce and tomatoes. Now with locations spanning the United States, Friendly's has come a long way from its first modest shop in Massachusetts, which sold double-dip cones for 5 cents. Today, servers scoop ice cream in classic flavors such as chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry and dish out new twists on the favorites, including Fribble soft-serve shakes and Friend-z ice-cream desserts whipped with toppings such as Oreos, Butterfingers, and Reese's peanut-butter cups. They also top crisp belgian waffles with scoops of ice cream and hot caramel and fill dishes with new ice-cream flavors such as Vienna Mocha Chunk and Rockin' Poppin' Cotton Candy.
Behind the grills, cooks build big beef burgers such as the Vermonter with melted vermont white cheddar and maple-pepper bacon on a toasted ciabatta roll. Healthier options include meals under 555 calories, such as the sweet and spicy grilled shrimp over rice pilaf and the chicken-caprese sandwich.
