Jeremiah's Italian Ice
I discovered Jeremiah's Italian Ice as a teenager (years ago). Tonight, I visited this location with my husband after a craving for coconut flavored Italian ice... and my wish was granted. I think their 28/30 Zagat rating is attributed to many things.
One of the most important things to know about Jeremiah's is that the experience never changes. There is always a young teenager who takes your order and serves you who is polite. Your selected item always tastes the same, always has the same texture, and always satisfies (large servings).
I also like that the business owner seems to embrace giving teenagers the responsibility of running a small business. If there is an adult supervising these teenagers, I have never seen them. Perhaps they're hiding somewhere in the back (of the tiny work space) counting money and checking inventory.
The business, according to their website, was established in 1996 and serve 40 varieties of Italian ice, gelati, and soft ice cream. Although, the experience is scheduled and the same no matter which location you go to, they still present as a small business with an "at home" feel. Will always be one of my favorites.
My coconut Italian Ice has 220 calories for every 4 ounces and no fat :)
