Jersey City – a place I have heard lots of stories about over the yearsl – I finally visited today. The section I saw was walkable from Hoboken. It was a charming city with nice parks, lots of brick buildings and a great ice cream shop!
Milk Sugar Love in Jersey City, New Jersey is a smal shop featuring homemade ice cream and baked goods. Everything is made on the premsis except the ice cream cones which are made in an ice cream conery (is that a word?) in Brooklyn. In addition to hand-dipped ice cream, pint packages of many flavors were also available. The friendly and enthusiastic barista was happy to welcome us and told us that they use fresh, local ingredients when ever possible, and let us try any flavors we were interested in. There were many flavors of ice cream I had not see before – I had Peachy Cherry and Lemon Olive Oil in a red velvet cone. The ice cream was a different texture than I was used to and not as sweet – but I totally enjoyed it. Renee did not like her Salted Carmel. There were benches outside the shop or a nice park acrss the street to sit while eating your ice cream. This place is worth a visit.
