An afternoon decadent treat

Today was one of those days where you think that you ought to be doing something. About mid afternoon we both said almost simultaneously “Let’s get an ice cream!” Sher and I often think of ideas at the same time. I suggested that we go to Columbus, Indiana and visit the Zaharakos vintage Ice Cream Parlor for the second time. You can read about our visit last April here.

On the drive to Zaharakos we discussed what we were going to order when we got to the Parlor. Hmmm… When we were there before we ordered lunch and said we’d be back for ice cream. Today was that day.

Ready to dive into those hot fudge sundaes!

What delicious sundaes we enjoyed! The butter pecan ice cream was the best I have ever tasted, and Sher agreed. The hot fudge was hot, not like some places. There was also a ton of the hot fudge, as it completely covered the bottom and sides of our dishes. This ice cream parlor was founded in 1900. The place is really an ice cream museum. There are many old soda fountains and several cases filled with the old flavor jars. In addition, there are several old mechanical “orchestra” machines.

    • Hope your situation changes soon. We had our masks, and there were only two other tables with patrons, and were were seated no closer than 20 feet from others. Staff all wore masks. Were that not the case, we would not have stayed, and we are fully vaxed w/boost.

  1. Oh my gosh, stop teasing me! A hot fudge sundae sounds way too delicious. You two act like a married couple with saying things the same time! πŸ˜‚β€οΈ
