If you are in the area you need to stop here and taste the ice cream. About a dozen different flavors. We tried 4-5 and they were all amazing. Need to stop back and try the rest next time.

My kids request Emma's every time we are in Lake Placid. The huge selection of sugary treats offers something for everyone! I love that we are always treated as if we are the only ones there. We will definitely be back!

I had the most amazing raspberry white chocolate drink here and I'm still dreaming about it. I wish I lived closer!

We stop by for ice cream because it a must stop by according to TripAdvisor and it's true. Went there twice to try out the multiple flavors they have. I love the Dark Chocolate Raspberry flavor ice cream.

We loved Emma's so much we went back the next evening for ice cream. Their waffle cones, ice cream and chipwiches are delicious. They have cookie dough, but we didn't try that.
