Sweet treats at Boardwalk Italian Ice & Creamery
Homemade ice cream, ices, custards, candy apples, cannolis, zeppole, milkshakes and all things yummy. Ice cream flavors rotate but include strawberry, honey vanilla, root beer float and maple bacon (hungry yet?). For the ultimate: Try the Beach Bowl. Sizes range from four-16 scoops and include nuts, cookies, chocolate chips, cake, fruit, syrup, whipped cream, sprinkles — and more!
This red and white gem has historical charm. It’s ensconced in a former 1940s home and sports iconic postcards of various beaches and boardwalks. The beach theme continues outside, with Adirondack chairs, sand and beach balls. Former New Jersey residents opened this family business, and it’s obvious they know a thing or two about the Jersey Shore and boardwalk ambiance. Their enthusiasm is as refreshing as their ice cream.
Where do we begin? How about with the delectable, gigantic banana split ($6.95), enough for two people to savor three scoops of ice cream, nuts, sprinkles, sauces and much more. Another scrumptious selection: fried Oreos ($4).
REASON TO GO
The ice cream is packed with fresh ingredients — and with plenty of outside seating, games, including a bean bag toss and a fun house mirror, plan to stay awhile. The seaside courtyard is perfect to reserve for a party.
Genuinely friendly, welcoming and efficient.
There’s a wonderful energy, but it’s quiet enough to chat.
Absolutely. We all scream for ice cream!
