Today I visited Emack & Bolio’s Newbury Street location to get myself a cool treat on a 60-degree November day. The store specializes in ice cream, sorbet, yogurt, and smoothies, and their colorful menu does not disappoint.
Their 290 Newbury Street store is relatively small (most likely since square footage is at a premium here), but is bright and exciting, and almost everywhere is painted. For those thinking about coming here, make sure to come on a nice day, since there it zero seating indoors, thus forcing their customers outside to eat.
The real instagram-worthy food is their unique cone toppings such as Rice Krispies, chocolate Rice Krispies, and some loaded with sprinkles. The store is definitely a must-visit, however it is too pricey to be a weekly treat, my cone & single scoop ice cream cost about $7.50.
While I was there, I spoke to another customer (the only one there) about her experiences.
“I’ve come to the store maybe three or four times before,” said Northeastern junior Anne Klauck. “The cones are really the main reason why I keep coming back. The ice cream is fine, but not really worth the price.”
Since this was my first time, I asked for recommendations.
“The Salted Caramel Chocolate Pretzel flavor is a top choice for sure, but my favorite has to be the Heaven flavor [vanilla, marshmallows, and white chocolate chips),” said Klauck.
