If you need an ice cream shop where you can really go all out, try Old School Frozen Custard. Their custard - churned fresh all the time - is extremely rich, and it’s available in chocolate, vanilla, and a couple of other rotating options (we like the matcha when it’s available). Pick a flavor and then decide between a sundae, concrete, cone, or homemade cookie sandwich. There’s no wrong choice.
