Eddie’s Sweet Shop is an ice cream parlor that’s been around for roughly 100 years, and hanging out here feels like going through a time warp to an era when you could smoke on airplanes and watch The Monkees on TV. The space looks like an old soda fountain, with a bar and some table seating, and they specialize in sundaes with all your classic toppings like whipped cream, hot fudge, and sprinkles. These come in a few different sizes, but you should probably get the largest one, with three scoops. It’ll come in a big metal serving dish, and you should bring some friends to help you finish it.
