Jack Frost Ice Creamery

31 Division Street South, Kingsville, 519-733-5070
Date visited: August 28

We stumbled on Jack Frost Ice Creamery during a drive through Kingsville and just had to stop: its setting in a grand old house was irresistible, and a giant sign screaming ice cream seemed like a good omen.

Unfortunately for our purposes, ice cream is a red-headed stepchild here, taking a back seat to the gastropub side of the business. We arrived about 2:30, which we thought well after the lunch rush, but when we told the hostess we were just there for ice cream, she frowned and relegated us to some sofa-style seats outside the fence rather than a table on the patio or porch that we coveted. Maybe we were outside the time staff expected us; a notice on the website promises ice cream from 5 to 9 p.m., “all week long.”

Jack’s serves a variety of London Ice Cream flavours that changes each week. When we were there, the nine offerings included kid-friendly Spiderman as well as more sophisticated Old Tyme Butter Pecan.

We chose a cone of Blueberries & Cream and one of Acadian Vanilla. Both were good although they melted fast in the heat. The vanilla in particular was flavourful; the blueberry really lacked much blueberry. A single is $3, a double is $4, and Jack’d Up is $5, add 50 cents for a sugar cone or $1 for a waffle cone.

Jack’s ice cream menu also boasts a crème brulee, cupcake a la mode, banana split, a chevre brownie, sundaes and floats made with Pop Shoppe pop. By the way, when did Pop Shoppe go from the discount brand to premium?

Bottom line: We think we might want to visit another time for a meal, but wouldn’t recommend dropping in for ice cream until we figure out what went wrong on our visit. Their signage (see photo) raised our expectations.

Marta’s notes: I was disappointed that they didn’t have an ice cream bar, but I liked the ice cream.

Stop 26 Ice Cream

10585 Clairview Avenue, Windsor, 519-735-1355
Date visited: August 16, with special guests Opa, Ute, Katja, Jens, Lydia, Freya and Rhys
We made a stop at Stop 26 after a day at the beach—it is situated directly across Riverside Drive from Sandpoint Beach on Lake St. Clair, just within the Windsor city limits.

That location is obviously a big selling point for an ice cream stand and Stop 26 Ice Cream is an old-fashioned place, with a distinct air of summer. It’s a seasonal operation and feels like one, in a good way.

The interior is welcoming to customers who walk over from Sandpoint and has a few tables, with more tables and benches outside. There are about 30 flavours of scoop ice cream on offer, from Nestle, Chapman’s and London Ice Cream Co.

A kids scoop is $1.50, a single runs $2 and a double is $3.50. Splurging for a sugar cone will set you back another 15 cents; a waffle cone adds 50 cents. In addition, Stop 26 serves sundaes and banana splits, milkshakes, floats and slushies.

Our large group split, with a few opting for milkshakes rather than cones. Among the ice creams we ordered were St. Jacob’s Apple Pie, Maple Walnut and Caramel Cup. All were fresh and tasty—refreshing after a hot day at the beach.

Neighbourhood kids frequent the joint too. There were a number of bikes piled up outside.

Bottom line: Stop 26 is definitely a great way to cap off your Sandpoint experience.

Marta’s notes: It was good. You can eat ice cream on the beach, as long as the wasps don’t get it.

Waterfront Ice Cream

229 Dalhousie Street, Amherstburg, 519-736-5553
Date visited: August 7, with special guests Opa, Oma, Ute, Katja and Jens

Waterfront Ice Cream is another on our list of must-try parlours. Open March to October, it is located directly across from Navy Yard Park, and a short walk from the popular splash pad in Toddy Jones Park.

It offers a full range of ice creams – more than 50 flavours of hand scoop from Nestle and the London Ice Cream Co., soft serve, sundaes, splits, shakes, floats, slushes, sodas, and frozen yogurt with a variety of candy and fruit toppings.

There is plenty of seating, with eight tables inside, seven under an outdoor gazebo, three on the covered porch and three picnic tables with central patio umbrellas, but many clients prefer to take their treats on a stroll along the river through the lovely treed park.

Between us, we tried several cones, including Toasted Smores, Lemon Meringue, Cherry Cheesecake, Pistachio, Rainbow Sherbet, and Lime Creamcycle. All were good and creamy, and the store is so busy, they never have a chance to get stale. A kids-sized cone will set you back $2.21; a single is $2.85; a double is $3.95 and a triple is $4.42. Add 30 cents for a sugar cone or 60 cents for a sugar cone lined with sprinkles; a waffle cone is $1 extra.

The store is usually busy but well-staffed, especially on weekends, so no wait is too long.

Bottom line: Waterfront Ice Cream is a summer destination and a walk through Navy Yard Park makes it worth the drive.

Marta’s notes: “It’s yummy ice cream, especially the Toasted Smores ice cream. I think that was actual chocolate-covered graham crackers in there.”

Dairy Freez

368 West County Road 34, Northridge
Date visited: July 31, with special guests Opa, Ute, Katja, Jens, Lydia, Freya and Rhys

Why stop off at the Dairy Freez? We were on our way home after a day on a Point Pelee beach, natch. This is a tradition for Windsor families dating back to 1957, and Dairy Freez does not disappoint.

The drive-in stand serves vanilla soft-serve as well as sundaes (with fresh local fruit in season), milkshakes, and a full car-friendly menu centred on burgers and sandwiches, fries and onion rings.

Since the completion of the Highway 3 bypass, County Road 34 is no longer the fastest route between Windsor and Leamington—just the most interesting. If you have seen the Pixar movie Cars, you will recognize Dairy Freez as a place that would fit well in Radiator Springs.

There are picnic tables under roofs, but if the weather is fine, you’ll want to sit at one under a tree, or perhaps at a cafe table on the brick patio. There’s a large grass lawn for kids to play on away from the road, as well as a small wooded area behind for them to explore.

Carhops will take your menu order and deliver it to your car or table, but if it’s busy (as it was on our visit – Sunday of a long weekend), you must order ice cream at the window and wait for it there.

Our large group ended up with eight cones. A quite-substantial baby-size runs $1.65; small is $2.15; medium is $2.65 and large is $3.15. I have seen people order medium and large cones but never witnessed anyone finish one. I believe it would be impossible to eat more than half before it melts entirely. A chocolate dip adds another 25 cents; dipped in chocolate and nuts adds 40 cents.

Dairy Freez is one of the places that inspired us to start this blog; we waited this late in the season to go because we wanted to take our visitors from BC. They seemed to appreciate the gesture.

Marta’s notes: The ice cream is yummy. The French fries are yummy. The onion rings are yummy.

Marta likes to dip french fries into her ice cream.


Beachside Eats and Treats

Jackson Street, Colchester
Date visited: July 23, with special guest Grandma
We stopped by Beachside Eats and Treats during our Explore the Shore tour, a day on which we tried four different yummy ice creams along County Road 50, the former Highway 18A.

The new ice cream stand at Colchester Harbour is part of an upgrade to the Lake Erie beach, as an effort by the town to recapture this resort’s glory days. If the menu looks like it was transplanted from a Dairy Queen, there’s a good reason. It was!

Beachside serves DQ-style soft ice cream in cones, sundaes or other forms, as well as frozen yogurt. For Explore the Shore, it gave away more than 1,000 free cones!

There is no indoor seating but several picnic tables; it’s a seasonal amenity to the neighbouring beach. A park atop the bluff features a splashpad and a large play structure in the shape of a pirate ship.

It was drizzly the day we were there, but we still had fun in the park and hope the beach draws crowds for years to come. Beachside will be a welcome source of eats and treats for those visitors.

Besides Beachside, our tour included a buy-one-get-one-free cones from Ure’s Country Kitchen’s 24 flavours of Nestle hard pack, 50-cent baby cones from the Village Country Store, and cones at Klassen’s Blueberries—Marta’s first taste of orange sherbet.

Beachside, as its name implies, overlooks the lake.

St. Joachim Diner and Big Scoop Ice Cream Parlour

2744 County Road 42, Lakeshore, 519-728-0919
Date visited: July 10

Located in the hamlet of St. Joachim in what used to be the Country Boy restaurant, the Big Scoop Ice Cream Parlour is situated at the rear of this diner. On our visit early on a Sunday afternoon, we entered a large dimly-lit space with a small ice cream bar tucked into one end.

The freezer holds 16 flavours of Nestle ice cream and a menu board offers a variety of specialties, including milkshakes and floats, slushes and sundaes. The servers double as wait staff for the diner, but appeared promptly to wait on us.

The Big Scoop name was well-earned. We each had a baby cone that was as big as a single any place else. The baby cone was $2.65, a single is $2.95 and a double is $3.65. The parlour does not stock sugar cones and serves flat-bottomed stubby cones.

We tried a Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough and the orange-licorice blend Tiger Tiger. Both were fine and as mentioned above, the portions were large. There were plenty of round wooden tables in the restaurant and a bench in the shade alongside the building overlooking the parking lot.

About a 40-minute drive from our downtown Windsor home, St. Joachim isn’t really a destination we will hit too often. It is on the way to Rochester Place golf course; we made the most of our afternoon with a walk through the Ruscom Shores Conservation Area.

Bottom line: The ice cream definitely seems like an afterthought to the much larger diner, and the dark tavern interior did not strike us as conducive to a family atmosphere. If we hadn’t been looking specifically for a site in the county’s north east corner, we could have given this a pass.

Marta’s notes: “It was awesome. I liked the variety of flavours they had.”

Freddy’s Park Stop

655 Point Pelee Drive, Leamington, 519-325-1257
Date visited: July 3

Freddy’s Park Stop is the last place to get ice cream before Point Pelee national park. It offers 32 flavours of Breyer’s hard pack as well as frozen yogurt, sundaes and other specialties, and is adjacent to a full-menu licensed restaurant with standard pub fare and a few dishes reflecting the Lebanese origins of the owners.

Breyer’s, like many ice cream manufacturers, has an unfortunate tendency towards the more-is-more school of design. The all-natural line it flogs in grocery stores features simple clean flavours like strawberry, butter almond, or four varieties of vanilla. For commercial service, though, it leans heavily on gimmicks: a lot of goo-filled chocolate cups with names like Hokey Pokey and Caramel Turtle. The further we get into this project, the less patience I have for these “loaded” flavours.

When in Rome, though, so we ordered Caramel Caribou – toffee ice cream with caramel ribbon and chocolate caramel cups – and Raspberry Bugaboo – black raspberry ice cream with fudge ripple and raspberry filled chocolate cups. I don’t know what I was expecting, but these were some over-sweet candy-crammed ice creams. Marta loved hers of course.

On the plus side, the servings were reasonably proportioned at $2.30 for a single cone. A double costs $3.20 and an upgrade to a waffle cone, waffle cup or sugar cone tacks on an extra 99 cents. Now waffle cones and cups hold more ice cream, so a premium is expected, but a buck more for a sugar cone is unconscionable. Nine weeks in, Freddy’s was the first place I didn’t spring for the sugar cone.

The setting is memorable, though – across the street from Lake Erie and from a public playground, Freddy’s makes the most of its location with a patio boasting a number of tables with comfortable chairs and big sun-screening umbrellas.

Bottom line: Freddy’s Park Stop is worth a stop after a hot day on the beach at Point Pelee and appears popular with its core clientele of cottagers.

Marta’s notes: I liked the ice cream and I liked being able to look at the water.

Ice Cream Festival

Toddy Jones Park, Amherstburg
Date visited: July 1

We couldn’t let the fourth annual Amherstburg Ice Cream Festival go unmentioned, especially since this year’s edition featured the most ice cream yet. The event is held Canada Day in Toddy Jones Park on the south end of Fort Malden and spills onto the fort grounds.

Previous years we had been disappointed in the number of vendors actually offering ice cream as opposed to candles or kettle corn, but this year there were a full seven varieties of frozen treat to choose from, and we sampled several.

We skipped the Dairy Treat soft ice cream truck on the grounds that all soft ice cream pretty much tastes the same. Marta can’t pass up a Hawaiian Ice, though, and she opted for a rainbow striped cup of lime, orange and blue raspberry. For $3, it’s shaved ice with brightly-coloured flavoured syrup – an upscale snow-cone. It’s only once a year, so what the heck? She liked it.

Dad tries some Nucelli's while Marta finishes her Hawaiian Ice.

Next up, some Nucelli’s Frozen Yogurt. Again, not strictly ice cream, but we weren’t in the mood to be particular. A cup of Strawberry-Chocolate set us back $3.50.

Gennaro’s gelato was offering $4 and $5 cups. This Italian specialty is denser than American ice creams, with typically richer flavours. We settled for a couple of taste spoons, sampling the Hazelnut and Limoncello. Both were terrific, with the not-too-sweet taste we want from gelato. Kudos to Enzo Palumbo, who was on hand that day, serving up the gelato he crafts himself in his Via Italia café.

After taking some time to enjoy the live entertainment, we came back to try the cups from Cold Stone Creamery. In Windsor-Essex, this high-end product is available at certain Tim Hortons locations, including the one in Amherstburg which organized the tent at the festival. The big draw to these super-ultra premium (with concomitant pricing!) specialties is supposed to be the experience: trained ice cream ninjas blend in expensive exotic extra ingredients on a frozen slab made of pure amethyst or somesuch. Suffice it to say this experience did not translate to an outdoors festival. “Here’s our freezer, here’s your cup of basic ice cream.” Our party tried Cake Batter and Apple Fritter, $4 each for a small. The latter is specially formulated to mimic a Tim Hortons apple fritter doughnut. Opinions varied on the former, some claiming to taste just sugar and others noting a distinct flavour of cake batter.

Besides serving its signature crepes, the Cottam-based Crepe Temptations offered small cones of Mapleton’s Organics ice cream. We ordered a couple of grown-up flavours: Ginger and Cappuccino. By this point in the day, our taste buds should have been jaded, but these final cones were the highlights. Rich and creamy, packed with flavour, the Mapleton’s ice cream was everything we were looking for. The fact that it’s organic and produced on a family farm in Ontario is just a bonus. At just $2 (for an admittedly small cone), it was the best deal of the day. I wonder how much it costs at the shop?

Even at the Ice Cream Festival you need a break from all that sweet. How about a Honking Big Pickle on a Stick (actual name)? Marta ended up eating two.

Cow and Cluck

333 Ouellette Avenue, Windsor, 519-903-1055
Date visited: June 27

We decided to break our Sunday routine to visit Cow and Cluck on a Monday, on our way to the Summerfest fireworks show on the Detroit River. We had been curious; Cow and Cluck is an atypical outlet, offering streetfront window service. On fireworks night, there were a few tables and chairs set up on the sidewalk outside.

The menu lists 16 flavours and says they’re all Chapman’s premium ice cream, but I’m not sure this specialty line actually offers that many, so presumably some were regular Chapman’s. There is a notable difference in quality, though. The premium line was distinctly less airy than I’m used to from Chapman’s.

We tried a cone each of Black Cherry and Mocha Almond Fudge. Both were good, although Marta noted of hers that “it was mocha-y and almondy, but not very fudgy.”

A single will set you back $2.90, a double $3.50 and a triple $4.90; a single in a sugar cone is $3.40 and a waffle cone is $3.90. Cow and Cluck also serves smoothies, sundaes and milkshakes.

Bottom line: Located on Windsor’s main drag, adjacent to nightclubs and directly across from the Palace theatre, Cow and Cluck is a welcome addition to downtown and its window service adds a note of urban sophistication.

Marta’s notes: “I liked the ice cream and it was a really nice place.”

Sunset Ice Cream & Gifts

2211 Front Road, LaSalle, 519-978-0177
Date visited: June 19

Billing itself as “Where ice cream meets art,” Sunset Ice Cream & Gifts offers more than just a snack — it’s an experience.

The ice cream isn’t the art, though.
Sunset offers 16 flavours of London Ice Cream co. product as well as floats, milkshakes, and a range of candies and other sweets.
In addition, the store is a gift shop, heavy on garden wares, which suits its setting: outdoors, patrons are welcome to tour a garden that features a pond boasting koi and even a frog.

We tried a Lime Creamcycle and Pralines and Cream, each in a sugar cone. The lime was surprisingly good, although even Marta said it could have been a bit more tart. Ask for the kids’ size although it’s not listed on the board — it’s a dollar cheaper than the posted $2.99 price for a single. A double is $3.99 which includes the sugar cone upgrade.

The shop is located directly next to Chappus Farms, which sells local produce in season. It’s south of the main part of town, and its seating choices: benches, chairs and even brightly-painted kids’ picnic tables, offer lots of comfortable perches.

A couple of indoor tables are used to hold tea parties!

Bottom line: We spent much longer than we had planned enjoying this oasis.

Marta’s notes: “It has good ice cream and you would probably enjoy seeing the fishes.”

Slinky’s Dairy Hut

100 Lesperance Road, Tecumseh, 519-735-1717
Date visited: June 12

Slinky’s is an institution. Situated at the terminus of the Ganatchio Trail, it operates seasonally — “from March Break to Hallowe’en,” our server said, serving a variety of ice cream treats.

Besides 32 flavours of Nestle and London ice cream hard pack, the store offers soft serve, frozen yogurt, and fancier concoctions: sundaes, banana splits, parfaits, milkshakes and sodas and floats. A word of warning though — our server told us their recipe for a Boston Cooler involves Vernor’s mixed with soft ice cream, rather than the traditional vanilla hard pack.

A girls’ soccer team ahead of us in line challenged the single server, but she handled them all quickly and expertly. Our orders of single scoops of Triple Chocolate Brownie and Gold Medal Ribbon, respectively, tasted good, but the servings were small for the price — $2.79 for a single and $3.99 for a double, plus 65 cents extra for a sugar cone and 85 cents for a sprinkle-edged cone. The total came to $7.49, our most expensive yet for the smallest cone yet.

Soft serve will run $2.19 for a single, $2.49 for a double, and $2.79 for a triple, more with a dip.

There are several stand-up tables indoors and a series of benches lining the outside, facing the parking lot.

Bottom line: Slinky’s may be a Tecumseh tradition, but it is not really worth visiting unless you’re in the neighbourhood.

Marta’s notes: “The ice cream was really good and the staff are friendly.”

Dari DeLite

2686 Howard Avenue, Windsor, 519-969-3845
Date visited: June 5

A stand-alone drive-up, Dari DeLite offers a limited selection of hard ice creams. On our visit, the sign listed six Sealtest flavours but the bins contained Chapmans products.

In fairness though, no one goes to Dari DeLite for hard ice cream; it’s really all about the soft serve.

A quick-moving queue forms to order cones in vanilla, chocolate or twist at three price points — $1.48, $1.76 or $2.10. Dipped in chocolate, the cones increase in price to $1.78, $2.05 or $2.38. A waffle cone will set you back $3.05.

On a really hot day, eating soft serve is a race against time and gravity to consume the sweet treat before it drips down your arm. It’s worth it to spring for the dip, which forms a casing that actually helps slow the dripping.

There is limited afternoon shade at Dari DeLite, no indoor seating and a few benches ranged along one wall facing the parking lot. But when the weather is pleasant, there are almost always families and young couples, patrons are happy and the staff is friendly and efficient.

The establishment serves its soft ice cream in a variety of creations, from sundaes to banana splits. Its menu also boasts shakes, malts, slushes, and even hot dogs (I’ve never seen anyone order one though).

Bottom line: Dari DeLite is not designed to satisfy a real ice cream craving, but is a quick and convenient stop for soft serve.

Marta’s notes: “I like the location because on a hot summer day, you can grab your ice cream and go for a walk in Jackson Park.”

The Candy Shoppe

523 Notre Dame Street, Belle River, 519-728-0682
Date visited: May 29

The Candy Shoppe is aimed squarely at kids, and it shows.
Located in the heart of Belle River on the Essex County north shore, it skews young, with about half of its 14 ice cream flavours meant to appeal to children.

The shop serves London Ice Cream Co. We had one cone each of Georgian Strawberry Cheese Cake and Loaded Cookies ’n’ Cream. Both were good if a little airy and the term “loaded” was no exaggeration, yet even in a sugar cone it was not overwhelmingly sweet.

In addition to ice cream, the Candy Shoppe sells bottles of Pop Shoppe products and a variety of old-fashioned sweets, but has a very reduced inventory since cutting its floor space in half over the last year.

There is no indoor seating, but a wooden deck holds three tables with umbrellas and is lined with comfortable benches.
Price for a cone: kids $1.50; single $2.45; double $3.35; triple $4.25.
A sugar cone adds 30 cents; $1 more for a waffle cone.

Also available: sundaes, shakes, smoothies and frozen yogurt.

Bottom line: the Candy Shoppe is close to the Belle River Marina and the adjoining  Lakeview Park, with its white sand beach, splash pad and playground, making it a nice visit in the summer.

Marta’s notes: “It was really good and they had candy as well as ice cream. It’s nice that it’s close to the beach so if you’re really tired and really hot after being at the beach, you can go there.”

Tecumseh Bar B Q’s Frosteys

5965 Malden Road, LaSalle, 519-972-1111
Date visited: May 22, with special guest Caileigh J
Formerly Frostey’s Ice Cream Palace, this place seems to be no longer aimed at an ice cream market. It used to offer an order counter open to outside, but now requires customers to order at the take-out pick-up counter.

When we visited, no prices were posted – this is extremely unfriendly to families – and the ice cream tubs are stored out of sight, so we can’t even tell you what brand is served. There are 19 flavours listed on a board but the freezer holds just 16.
We had three cones – Chocolate Peanut Butter, Bubble Gum, and Butter Pecan. They were good.

Frosteys has no indoor seating and lots of outdoor seating at benches and picnic tables.
Price for a cone: our singles in sugar cones were $3.19 apiece.
Also available: Sundaes, shakes, malts, and a hot fudge ice cream puff.

Its conversion to a Tecumseh Bar B Q means Frosteys is now open year-round rather than seasonally. Ribs, barbequed chicken, and sandwiches anchor a full menu that includes higher-end desserts like tortes.

Bottom line: a place to stop with kids if you’re in LaSalle, the new management approach devalues ice cream so that Frostey’s no longer warrants making a special trip unless what you’re hungry for is ribs.

Marta’s notes: “well, it was really good, but I thought it could be better, because it wasn’t what I really bargained for.”

T. Bear’s Creamery

9945 Tecumseh Road East, Windsor, 519-735-8445
Date visited: May 15

T. Bear’s is the Windsor distributor for Kawartha Dairy Co. ice cream, and also serves soft ice cream, yogurt and sherbets. Located directly across the street from the Forest Glade Cinema, it attracts a steady stream of family business.

T. Bear’s stocks 48 flavours of scoop ice cream, ranging from Black Raspberry Thunder to Pumpkin Pie to Marty’s World Famous Buttertart. This is good ice cream made with actual cream – we tried Crème Brulee and Bear Claw, which is dark chocolate with chocolate-covered cashew “claws” swirled with caramel. The dark chocolate actually tasted like dark chocolate, and the crème brulee was smooth and delicious.

T. Bear’s does not have seating besides a bench inside the door and is located in a strip mall—it’s meant for a pick-up and go experience. To that end, it also stocks pre-packed tubs to take home.
Price for a cone: kids $1.99; single $2.99; double $4.05; triple $5.54.
No extra charge for a sugar cone; 50 cents more for a waffle cone.
Also available: sundaes, shakes, smoothies and ice cream cakes.

Bottom line: we were surprised and pleased at the quality of the Kawartha ice cream and agreed to return. If you like ice cream you may want to check out T. Bear’s, especially given its very competitive pricing.

Marta’s notes: “It was really good and they had unusual flavours.”

Busker’s Ice Cream and Subs

1805 Tecumseh Road West, Windsor, 519-254-2212
Monday to Friday, 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Sunday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Date visited: May 8

Busker’s offers a wide range of ice creams – typically, 36 flavours of hard ice cream on hand as well as soft ice cream and frozen yogurt. It serves Nestle’s ice cream favourites such as Tiger Tiger, Rainbow Sherbet and Pralines and Cream and premium selections from the London Ice Cream Co. 

On the day we went, every barrel of ice cream looked all-but brand new. A cone of Chiquita banana was really good; surprisingly, it was not oversweet. A hot fudge sundae made with soft serve was loaded with toppings, including nuts and a cherry.

Busker’s does not offer indoor seating. There are five benches outside along with six tables surrounded by chairs. It’s on a busy road, so there’s lots of traffic to watch go by, but it’s not exactly a picturesque view.
Prices for a cone:
Hard pack: kids $2.78; single $3.15; double $4.90; triple $5.90.
Soft: kids $1.75; single $2.50; double $3.15; triple $4.15.
A sugar cone is an extra 10 cents and a waffle cone is an extra 75 cents.
Also available: sundaes and banana splits, shakes, malts, floats.

Note: Busker’s also serves a full menu of subs, salads, and sandwiches from gyros on a pita to a classic reuben. French fries, onion rings, mozzarella sticks, etc.

Bottom line: This was a good place for us to open with, since we’re very familiar with Busker’s – it’s close to grandma’s house.
Marta’s notes: “I loved it. It was really good!”
“Personally, I thought that it was pretty nice but you got to be careful or you won’t get a seat!”
