Best Ice Cream Parlor
CRITICS, UPSTATE | Sweet Lucy’s
3201 Concord Pike, Wilmington, 477-0777
The ice cream at Sweet Lucy’s Ice Cream & Treats is from Woodside Farm Creamery in Hockessin. It’s fresh. The servers, on the other hand, are not. They’re nice, patient, helpful teens. Try the Flying Elvis (banana ice cream with peanut butter and chocolate), the Motor Oil (coffee ice cream with chocolate syrup and caramel), and others. Don’t get us started on the sundaes.
CRITICS, DOWNSTATE | King’s Homemade Ice Cream
201 Second St., Lewes, 645-9425
302 Union St., Milton, 684-8900
Since 1972 in Milton and 1981 in Lewes, King’s Homemade Ice Cream has put the social in ice cream social. Of course, great homemade ice cream is an important part of the formula, but it’s the experience of sitting or standing outside the store, enjoying the ice cream with friends and strangers alike, that makes this hometown parlor special.
