The oldest ice cream shop in NYC, Eddie's Sweet Shop serves as a dine-in sundae parlor and candy store rolled into one. The decor is nostalgic, the ice cream is handmade on site, and they also offer floats, ice cream sodas, and milkshakes.
Yelp review: "If you want to really impress an ice cream lover or throw an epic ice cream sundae party for yourself, go to Eddie's. Eddie's is a super old school ice cream parlor featuring about 20 homemade flavors, lots of toppings, and a candy counter, too. I don't think it's possible to get a banana split better and cheaper than this one anywhere in the city. On a recent trip, I shared a three scoop banana split with four friends and it was the perfect amount of ice cream. We got it with hot fudge, which kind of melted all of the flavors together almost immediately, but it was still delicious! For flavors we got maple walnut, coffee, and vanilla fudge. The ambiance of this place will make you feel like you're in high school again. Perfect date spot or just a great way to cool off after a hot summer day." —Carol B.
