Hand dipped Soft serve Sundaes Other treats An old fashioned Ice Cream stand with decent prices. $2 for a small cone or $2.50 for single scoop. Reasonable prices. My grandmother lived around the corner her whole life and I remember walking there as a kid. Don't let appearances fool you. Main Event Custard is the bees knees. Check out that... More

A sweet little hut with tons of flavors and options. Soft serve and Jack and Jill hand dipped ice cream, plus many sundae options and snacks. Prices were quite reasonable and portions were generous. A nice seating area with picnic tables is situated under a roof if you need shade. Nothing fancy here, in a residential area of town that... More

What can you say about Dunkin Donut's coffee - it's great!! Service at this establishment tends to be better in am than after 5 pm.

Came here with the family for ice cream and it was good, but not great. My wife's family is local and I think the draw comes from the nostalgia of this place. Still good ice cream, and when we visit we come here daily.

Best ice cream in the area. No need to look elsewhere. Many ice cream shops in the area, but none like this one. The flavors are so rich.

I have no idea what they do to the soft serve here but wow! It's amazing. So creamy almost like gelato. It's the best I have ever had. Must try.

One of the best ice cream shacks I've ever had the pleasure of visiting. The staff is amazingly friendly and the ice cream treats are top notch! We actually went 2 nights in a row :P

The best tasting ice cream I have had at the best price around. The most popular ice cream shop in Pleasantville for good reason. Friendly, excitable service is waiting at the windows in both English and Spanish. You may find a line to the end of the parking lot on the weekend summer nights but it's well worth the wait....
