The Jamaica Plain–born ice cream institution, which has since spread to multiple locations throughout the area, is known for its funky cow motif, lively atmosphere, youthful scoopers and exciting flavors. Expect to wait on steamy weekends, and pass the time by reading through the lengthy list of flavors. New England-inspired options run the gamut from grapenut raisin ice cream (made with malted vanilla) to "Cape Codder" sorbet (cranberries blended with local vodka and a hint of lime). The place also roasts its own coffee in case you want to supplement your sugar rush with a caffeine fix.
