Ted Drewes has incredible custard! Parking can be intense and hard to find due to popularity. Prices are reasonable. There is always a line, multiple lines, but it moves quickly.

Ted Drewes is a custard classic! Make sure you swing by for a quick treat at this landmark. You can keep it simple or go with a flavorful concrete or mix in. Either way, there are tons of choices and you won’t be disappointed.

It might. Pack it in heavy ice. It is really thick! You might ask the staff their recommendation.
