2018 Best Ice Cream

Honeycomb Creamery

With vanilla, chocolate, and matcha-flavored homemade cones and a smattering of bold ice creams to top them with, wife-and-husband team Kristen Rummel and Rory Hanlon retain their thrones as dairy queen and king of Cambridge. Their quaint shop’s imaginative list of locally sourced scoops rotates seasonally: Standby favorites include cold-brew-coffee chip and malted vanilla, but fresh ideas such as honey lavender and London Fog are palate pleasers, too.
