Great ice cream and occasional live entertainment. Only downside is it's a bit expensive, but definitely give it a try.

“So cute! Lively. Good treats.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 October 2011

Emack and Bolio's is this charming little gem that you would not expect to be so quirky. And the ice cream is good, but they also have other treat to choose from. And it is hard to choose, but you really can't go wrong. The order counter area can get pretty crowded, but once you have your food you can go in the back room, in the window, or outside. It's a fun spot for ice cream with friends in Albany and has far more charm and pizazz than Ben and Jerry's on Lark Street.

The best ice cream and coffee, ever. Gourmet quality, but reasonably priced.
