Without ice-cream cones, people would have to make their own frosty treats by scooping the brains out of snowmen. Bwargh snow zombies with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of ice cream and café fare at Creamery on Main in Emmaus.
Creamery on Main's troop of gregarious servers dishes out treats for all times of the day, including bagels, sandwiches, and ice cream. Morning munchers can replace their flasks of ground corn flakes with a cereal bar ($2), while lunchtime and dinnertime eaters can wrap mitts around a pulled-turkey, pulled-pork, or hamburger sandwich ($5). Fill upside-down wizard hats with up to four scoops of ice cream ($4.25) before strewing them with various toppings, such as M&M's, peanuts, and Oreo crumbles ($0.50 each for all toppings). Mountain-climbing cherries scale the whipped-cream peaks of ice-cream sundaes ($3.75–$4.50), and patrons can slurp up milk shakes that are blended as liquid likenesses of their favorite ice-cream flavor ($3.50–$4.50). Inside Creamery on Main, inviting pink tones swaddle diners, and full-grown and pintsize tables provide seating for all ages of dairy devotees. Black-and-white snapshots hung up on walls capture moments, including kids happily soothing their throats after getting a tonsillectomy or swallowing a pinecone.
