The Best Ice Cream – Homer's has been making ice cream since 1935 and is still making it from scratch and on premise. It has been family owned for I believe 3 generations now.They use only the freshest ingredients and pay attention to detail and tradition. Go and try it for yourself. You will not be disappointed. Their seasonal flavors ROCK!!!!
not homemade – i'v always loved this place but the ice cream has gone down hill. I asked an employee why? "it's because we do not make it ourselves anymore, it's all produced by Ceder Crest"
classic ice cream – This place is a fun blast from the past. The ice cream is wonderful. And yes, be ready for kids having post-soccer season treats.
Soccer moms and dedicated dads pile kids into SUVs and head here for tasty, homemade ice cream treats. – In Short
Brick walls, a carnivalesque red-and-white interior, and old-fashioned ball lights create a festive backdrop at this North Shore favorite. Little Leaguers and groups of teens dig into shakes, malts, sundaes and cones. Flavors range from vanilla and chocolate to banana, peach, Baileys and Reese's Peanut Butter Cup, plus lighter fare like sherbets and frozen yogurt. Aside from sweets, the menu offers hot dogs, burgers, subs, pastas and more.
The BEST! – This is THE quintessential ice cream parlor. It has been a main stay for over 75 years at the same location.
The Ice Cream is still made the old fashioned way, right on the premises. They don't mask inferior ice cream with gobs of candy and crap, like all these new ice cream spots like Cold Stone. It is just REALLY good ice cream, done the right way.
Homer's Ice Cream Company – Although the ambience is not the best, and you had better like screaming children, the ice cream is the best in the world. It is made right on the premesis with the best of ingredients. In the summer, the Fresh Peach is to die for! It is well worth the trip.
