Peppermint hot chocolate was Truly Scrumptious. Reminded me of something out of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. I would recommend stopping in if you're in the mood for a sweet treat.

Last thing I needed was ice cream at night but that didn't stop us. As their sign says "It's never too cold for ice cream". Even when the line is out the door we still waited. Ice Cream was very yummy. Kinda weird how they serve you at the tight front register, but hey it's a small store and it... More

The sign outside reads it's never too cold for ice cream and they prove it to be true! I couldn't decide between 2 flavors and the kind woman let me sample them both. Service was quick and friendly! I ultimately went with the minty mint chip, which was delightful. My boyfriend, who is a vanilla man, shook it up by... More

If this place is number 2, then I must find number 1. It's hard to believe another dessert place in town is better than this place.

I loved the smell of the place as soon as we walked in. Very cramped, little place but amazing ice cream and great flavors. Lots to offer!

Yummy variety of desserts, and love the Lake Girl attire! Chocolate covered pretzels and ice cream were a bit hit!

We visited over Christmas weekend 2016 and it was a highlight of our food experience while in town. The maple ice cream sandwich was one of the most amazing desserts I have ever had...so delicious! I wish they could mail some more out to me :) Others in my group had the chocolate chip cookie ice cream sandwich, s'mores sundae... More

The Kids wanted ice cream after dinner so we went to Emma's. the selection was just right. We tasted a few before we made our selections and we were all very happy with our choices. If ever we visit Lake Placid again (I'm sure we will) then we will DEFINATELY visit Emma's again.
