    Has anyone gone to Bruster's yet? My wife and I did earlier this week (first day crowds subsided) and it was very good! The twin order lines and central serving line is a pretty good arrangement. Staff was friendly and all had masks and seemed to be cleaning a lot. People seemed to self distance themselves. Hats off to Bruster's to be brave enough to open in the midst of the pandemic,

    Haagen Dazs is the best, I guess people goto Brusters for all the addons and extras. The brownie Sundae is good.

    I find their ice cream 'ok'. Sure tastes a lot like frozen self-serve if you ask me. The variety of mix ins they do for their flavor menu is nice.. I love the fresh waffle cones. But doesn't seem like traditional ice cream to me.

    Give me dumsers over this.

    I went by there, but since I can't have any milk or sugar right now I just watched. It looks so good. I hope they stay in business there. That is a perfect spot for an Ice cream shop.
