Four Seas Ice Cream, Centerville, Massachusetss
Lat: 41.644 Long:-70.345
PBS featured this popular place on a documentary about ice cream, and yesterday we were returning from a short holiday in Cape Cod. It was humid and in the high 80's. A short detour led us to the quiet little town of Centerville, and this store which has been popular for half a century. There was a staff of helpful and friendly young people who handled the steady flow of customers. A huge choice of flavors made it difficult to choose, but we had just had lunch and I only had room for one small scoop of black raspberry. It was perfect, probably because of the ingredients including very high butterfat milk. There are all kinds of combinations: small $2.75, medium $3.00, and large (two scoops) $4.00. A handpacked quart is $5.10, so bring ice if you plan to drive more than a few minutes. The web site has more locations and some interesting history of the store.
