Delicious ice cream, frozen yogurt, drinks and hot dogs, adjacent to the train, walk to the beach, plenty of covered but open air seating and parking, too. So friendly and a local favorite. Kids swarm after nearby baseball games (or during!)

The perfect summer spot for ice cream. They have wonderful soft serve ice cream and also great richardson's ice cream with every kind of topping. It is right near the train to / from Boston. It isn't summer without a stop there.
