Ice Cream & Desserts
There’s always room for ice cream and desserts after a great meal or on a warm summer evening with a scoop from favorite Lehigh Valley ice cream shops and dessert shops.
Nittany Lion fans will love Hotel B’s Ice Cream Parlor on Main Street in Bethlehem, which features ice cream from State College’s famous Penn State Berkey Creamery. Head on out to the dairy farm at Klein Farms Dairy & Creamery in Easton and say hi to the very happy cows that provide the milk for the rich ice cream. And our staff favorite is Bethlehem Dairy Store, known to locals as "The Cup", a Christmas City establishment for over 85 years, serving up tons of flavors, vegan options, and their famous chipwich.
The Downtown Allentown Market has something for every hunger pain, from barbecue, to coffee, and yes, decadent ice cream at Batch Microcreamery. Try their over the top sundaes like the Salty Dog, which hits the salty & sweet cravings with vanilla ice cream, peanut butter sauce, hot fudge, pretzel pieces, and a pretzel.
For more sweet treats, like pudding, sundaes, and cobblers at Khanisa’s Desserts (formerly on Northampton Street in Easton and reopening soon in the Downtown Allentown Market). The “Southern Classic” is a must—a layered pudding delight filled with bananas, vanilla wafers, and Khanisa’s vanilla pudding.
So go on, go discover your favorite scoop or dessert from Lehigh Valley.
'Tis the season for ice cream, al fresco dining, water recreation, and the great outdoors. I think it is safe to say ice cream is the official sponsor of summer! And that means you should celebrate with a scoop of your favorite Lehigh Valley ice cream!
