    Too noisy, stale ice cream, not clear about the seating.

    It's worth waiting if there's a line. They move pretty fast, even on Sunday morning.

    This is a great icon of american life. Hard to go wrong - great breakfast and wonderful ice cream & frozen yogurt. No pretense here, and the service is enthusiastic and genuine...a real family feel

    get the newtonite!! 20 to 22 scoops of ice cream, pineapple sauce, strawberry sauce, coffee sauce, rum toffee, hot fudge, whipped cream, and a cherry for $36

    The omelette seemed rushed, and the short-stack was very dense. Just not what we had anticipated.

    Did you know you can order a drum of ice cream for your next summer party? They give you the tools to get all that serving done too!

    The Death By Chocolate and Maine Black Bear ice cream are Richardsons... But for some reason they taste better here than anywhere else!

    Be aggressive. If you don't push and shove, the legions of the self-entitled will trample you while you beg to have your order taken. Very, um, let's say, provincial.

    If you're lactose intolerant you can get some delicious non dairy ice cream. You can choose from lots of flavors. I reccomend the coffee flavor.

    Don't come on a Monday - they aren't open, but they are open the other 6 days of the week.

    Go on saturday mornings - it's more relaxed and less crowded than Sundays. Great place to take your kids.

    actually, Cabot's did me repeatedly with a the sort of lust that you can only get from a great ice cream parlor.
