Bruster's Real Ice Cream
A step onto Bruster's Real Ice Cream front porch—where red wrought-iron furniture and blooming flowers pop against a white façade—might as well be a step back into the good old days. Despite the traditional imagery, the ice-cream shop's exterior was recently remodeled so that customers could get the same enjoyment out of the environment as they do from a bowl or cone of its premium ice cream. The friendly staffers behind the counter not only scoop up the creamy dessert but also create custom cakes for special occasions, lead summer camps and birthday parties, and provide catering to private events.
