    Try cinnamon-raisin for a seasonal flavor. It is both creamy and light. One of the ice-cream shops in the city. Love it!!!

    The best ice cream in Cambridge/Boston (far better than Toscanini's and Christina's). The best flavors are cappuccino crunch (for coffee/cinnamon lovers), any peanut butter flavor, and brownie batter.

    A local ice cream chain done good, they're guaranteed to be popular on sunny days, and well worth the small line, which usually moves quickly. The coconut almond chip ice cream is where it's at.

    Winning move: ask for an Extra Spicy 'El Diablo' hot chocolate. Fit caffeine kick, add espresso shots or even go 1/2 coffee 1/2 hot chocolate.
