Cabot’s Ice Cream And Restaurant – After 42 years in business, the “granddaddy” of Newton ice cream places knows a thing or two about making a delicious sundae or a tasty frappe. They have 70 different flavors and 35 toppings which mathematically means you can have your ice cream… a lot of different ways.
Wally’s Wicked Good Ice Cream – Known for some doggone good ice cream (because it’s named after the owners’ dog), Wally’s has a loyal following for all of its many gourmet ice cream flavors. And now they are offering “Wally’s Lollies” which are chocolate cake balls mixed with frosting and covered in chocolate. Have some dessert after your ice cream!
Nudo Gelateria – The newest addition to the Newton frozen treat scene doesn’t sell actual ice cream. But Nudo’s gelato is made just like they make it in Italy and is so chock full of fresh fruit, nuts, chocolate and other goodies that you might become a gelato convert. Try one of their seasonal fresh fruit smoothies or an espresso drink. Buon appetito!
J.P. Licks – Yes, there are JP Licks all over the Boston area but the one in Newton Center seems to have the friendliest staff and the most delicious ice cream. Did you know that in addition to many flavors of “regular” ice cream they also have lactose-free, low fat and low-calorie options? So you can be good to yourself even when you’re indulging your sweet tooth.
