Cafe Arpeggio:
With their 103 flavors of homemade deliciousness, the possibilities are endless, and the decision time might take a few extra minutes. If you’re a peanut butter fiend, then the Elephant Memory sundae is the way to go. This mouthwatering sundae consists of peanut butter hot fudge drizzled over two scoops of ice cream, chopped Hydrox cookies (similar to Oreos), chopped Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, and of course, whipped cream and nuts. If you’re looking for something a little more simple, but with the same amount of flavor-blasting taste, some great options are white chocolate almond, coffee crunch, butter walnut, apple pie, ginger snap, mint triple chip, mudd pie, heath bar, or raspberry chocolate, to name a few. All ice cream flavors are handmade with the best ingredients at the Fall River location every Wednesday. Moderately priced and made with the finest ingredients, Cafe Arpeggio’s special flavors can also be made-to-order for special events. Cafe Arpeggio’s is open daily 7am-10pm

Ben & Jerry’s:
From a renovated gas station in Burlington, Vermont, to far-off places with names we sometimes mispronounce, the journey that began in 1978 with 2 guys and the ice cream business they built is as legendary as the ice cream is euphoric. This legendary ice cream chain has opened a shop in the Seaport District.  Ben & Jerry’s is located at 83 Seaport Blvd, they are open daily from 11am-11pm.

The Fro-Yo Mix & Match:
Imagine this: All of your favorite candies and treats, blended together with vanilla, chocolate, plain or sugar-free frozen yogurt, to make the perfect confectionary treat. If that’s what you’re looking for, then Amsterdam Cafe and Broadway’s Best are the places for you. You can choose from an abundance of toppings, including banana, blueberry, Butterfinger, brownie, cheesecake, peppermint, honey graham, Kit-Kat and even pumpkin, pick a frozen yogurt flavor, and have it all mixed together for the ultimate frozen-dessert dream come true. Both cafes also offer shakes and smoothies! And they both deliver.
