Strickland’s Ice Cream: Try the Custard Flavor of the Day

May 26, 2015 3:31 pm

Strickland’s Ice Cream abides by the old mantra of quality over quantity, and it certainly shows in the delicious custard-style ice creams here. The shop serves only four flavors per day, but that leaves Strickland’s the time to perfect every flavor and make it fresh before serving.

The custard itself is smooth and creamy, with a consistency that’s more like soft serve ice cream, and regulars agree that that really sets Strickland’s apart from other ice cream places. The smiling employees even hand-dip every customer’s order using antique dippers, only adding to the traditional ice cream shop experience.

Check the online calendar to see when they’re serving exciting flavors like Thai tea or Dole Whip for an even more memorable visit.

Strickland’s Ice Cream is open noon to 10 p.m. daily.

If your Mexican food of choice is usually tacos or burritos, you just might change your mind after visiting the family-owned Olis Bakery. This cozy bakery specializes in south-of-the-border baked goods like flan and Mexican bread, as well as savory tamales for lunch in your choice of cheese, pork, or chicken.

Conchas and pan dulce (a customer favorite) are prepared fresh on site, but where the bakery really shines is in its gorgeous custom wedding cakes. The friendly staff will work with you to decide on the perfect theme, and the bakery's affordable prices will help keep you right on your wedding budget.
