Ice Cream Crawl – Maggie Moo’s

The summer ice cream crawl continues! Next up: Maggie Moo’s in Bayside.

MaggieMoo’s Ice Cream and Treatery is located on Bell Boulevard in the heart of Bayside’s bustling restaurant district. Choose from the endless variety of cuisine, from Italian to Korean, burgers to sushi, and then head on over to MaggieMoo’s to cool off and satiate your sweet tooth.

MaggieMoo’s makes a delightful selection of ice cream in-house each day. You’ll have the opportunity to get creative and choose your  flavor and then add your choice of mix-in(s), which will be hand-folded together on a marble slab before your very eyes. You can also opt for one of Maggie’s Fresh Escapes, ice cream combinations carefully concocted by the experts. After several generous samples, I chose butter pecan ice cream with whole pecans served in a waffle cone ($4.49). Yum yum!

In addition to their create your own cone scenario, MaggieMoo’s offers several innovative treats. For the fruit fanatics, they sell chocolate covered bananas. That’s healthy, right?? Have a special occasion coming up? Try the adorable ice cream cupcakes (an inch of cake topped with ice cream and decorated) or an ice cream pizza that looks suspiciously like the real thing. They also have a full assortment of ready-to-go and made-to-order ice cream cakes.
