Celebrating warm weather with frozen custard
Check out what we had to say in August after our first trip there.
Yesterday I had vanilla custard and chocolate custard (in alternating scoops in my cup, so they mixed together nicely), while Dom had peanut butter chocolate ice cream and strawberry custard (the banana custard hadn't been made yet). What a nice treat for the start of spring!
Not all of the flavors have been made, so first-timers might want to wait a few weeks to get a better selection. And remember, the key thing to say is, "We've never been here before." The super-nice staff will give you recommendations and samples of all the important stuff.
It's a bit of a haul to get there, but you won't be disappointed in what you get. If you're not sure you want to spend a couple hours of your day on a trip to get ice cream, you should plan a stop there when tending to other business on the West Side.
Want to learn more about Weber's? Check out this article from WestLife: Vintage machines secret to Weber's ice cream. That's a good dose of nostalgia for old-fashioned ice cream, even for those of us who never had the pleasure of eating vanilla ice cream at Euclid Beach Park or a frosted malt at Higbee's in downtown Cleveland. (That article also notes that Weber's is now sold in quarts and pints at The Grille, "a new restaurant in Cornerstone Plaza at the corner of Lorain and Clague roads").
