Ice Cream & Custard: Sparky’s Homemade Ice Cream

Eccentric art-covered walls welcome customers at Sparky’s Homemade Ice Cream, which offers a selection of imaginative takes on classic flavors. Try the Oreo Speedwagon (cookies and cream with coffee), pineapple upside-down cake or s’mores. Make it a sundae with a brownie and fudge sauce or, for the 21-plus crowd, a boozy float.
