From Our Editors

When Marian and Lew Evans bought the 18 year-old Roses Ice Cream in 1968, they neatly divided the labor: she managed the restaurant, he crafted the ice-cream, and their children worked the lunch counter. Perhaps it's this childhood experience that engendered a true love for the place in their daughter, who took over its operation in 1979. She ran the ice-cream parlor until 1994, when she had to sell it—only to see it torn down just three years later. Finally, in 2007, she joined forces with her brother to rekindle the family business and establish the second Roses Ice Cream.

Though modern, this casual eatery follows the precedent set by the original. Throughout the year, the owner and her staff harvest a rainbow of local berries, nuts, and candies, which they blend into the parlor's old-fashioned 14% butter-fat ice cream. Following this painstaking process, they craft more than 30 flavors in 6-gallon batches throughout the year. Sometimes, these flavors change seasonally—shifting from refreshing berry flavors in the spring and summer to heartier pumpkin in the fall and humanely raised snowman in the winter. These classics are accompanied by other frozen treats such as soy-based ice cream, fresh fruit sherbets, and an ice cream sandwich made with snickerdoodle cookie and cinnamon ice cream. To complement the sweeter offerings, Roses also serves savory fare such as soups, salads, and char-broiled local chuck burgers.
