Gold Winner Dee Dee’s Ice Cream
Silver Winner Humani-T Cafe, South Park Street
Bronze Winner Cows Ice Cream
Sure, the perfect location (near the Common) and an old-fashioned school house look (right down to the stained glass and wooden shingles) help underscore Dee Dee’s Ice Cream’s charm, but really, what makes it the best scoop spot is simple: Homemade waffle cones that aren’t too brittle or sweet and ice creams in fresh, creative combinations (Mexican chocolate anyone?) that’ll have you licking the last droplets running down your fingers. Oh, and that they’re all made in-house with real milk, no weird stuff from a binder labelled “top secret.” Well, we’ll make that two scoops, please.
