Hershey's ice cream is always a winner. Several types of cones to choose from. VERY friendly service. Wish they had offered hot fudge.

A must destination for both visitors and locals. Stephan's Sugar Shack is a beach theme ice cream parlor, complete with a sand and sea shells that is truly one of a kind. Over 50 flavors of ice cream (Hershey's and Dippin Dots) and Italian Ice are served by a friendly staff while the best songs from summers past play in the background. Products include milk shakes, floats, sundaes, cones, and our famous ice cream pies.
