Farfar’s Danish Ice Cream Shop

The real ice-cream aficionado’s conundrum: Once you’ve gone Danish, you’ll never go back. If that Danish is Farfar’s, however, you’ll go back repeatedly. This isn’t your over-the-top carnival of crazed flavor and obnoxious and undiscriminating mix-ins. Farfar’s is about amazing, rich texture and simple but intense fresh flavors. The cinnamon is a coup de cremerie. The peanut butter reaches deep into the nut’s truest flavor. And the sweet cream tastes like innocence itself.
