This is definitely one of my favourite ice cream shops in New York City. It really feels like it fell out of the 1950s and somehow managed to stay afloat all these years. You can even sit at the counter! Like at Pop Tate's!
Jenn and I went here recently so that I could finally try an egg cream. Despite its name, it contains neither eggs nor cream - it's a beverage consisting of milk, carbonated water and chocolate syrup. What does it taste like? I would classify it as a lighter milkshake (ie. delightful).
I've wanted to try one of these for years and it didn't disappoint. I'm not sure if it's mainly something you can order in New York or if they're as popular in other states, but if you find yourself in this part of Queens, you should really try one.
