Snowflake Ice Cream Shoppe

Spring has arrived! The air is warmer, the birds are singing, the trees are pollinating (ugh!) and a “young” man’s fancy turns to…ice cream!

In a previous post, I mentioned Snowflake as an after dinner option. As they have no indoor seating, I usually save this treat for the warmer weather, although they are open all year round. Nothing beats getting a cup or cone of your all-time favorite flavor, topping it with your favorite sauce (with or without whipped cream and cherry) and heading back to the gazebo at the rear of the property to savor the wonderful goodness.

They have soft serve and hard pack, all of which are made on premises. Beside the usual, some interesting flavors include cake batter, peanut butter cup, Peconic swamp thing (chocolate ice cream with brownie pieces and chocolate sauce), and pumpkin (a seasonal offering in the Fall). Not to be missed are the seasonal fruit toppings. My all-time favorite is fresh peach, which I sampled last Summer. Outstanding!

So, after dinner at any restaurant in the Riverhead area, head on over to Snowflake. It sits on the north side of SR 25, diagonally across from Buoy One. It’s open 7 days a week 10-10 Sunday-Thursday, 10-11 Friday & Saturday. Take my word for it, this is as close to Heaven on Earth as you get. But this is, after all, just One Man’s Opinion.
