Main Street Sweet Shoppe, Deep River, Connecticut
I assume that for 51 weeks a year Deep River, is a quiet, quaint town. But I visited it the 52nd week – when hundreds (or thousands) of fifers, drummers, groupies and spectators descend upon this beautiful place to parade, jam and play lots of beautiful music. A group of us decided to check out what the town had to offer in the ice cream arena, and to see what Pokemon characters were hiding along the way.
The Main Street Sweet Shoppe in Deep River, Connecticut is a nicely decorated cafe-style place with tables inside and benches outside. The friendly staff served us Ashby’s and Gifford’s ice cream – I had Scouts Honor and Peanut Butter Pie – both of which were very good! We enjoyed our ice cream outside because the shop was quite busy and it was such a warm night. I look forward to stopping by here on the third weekend of July next year!
