Has the summer heat got you down? Then it's time to visit Chesapeake for some delicious local ice cream. Here are three local shops where you're sure to satisfy your summer sweet tooth.
Creamy, smooth and always freshly made in-house, Bergey's ice cream is a treat for folks of all ages. This family-owned Chesapeake gem has been serving up fresh food for over 75 years. While you're there, treat your taste buds to their made-from-scratch pies, cookies, cupcakes, muffins, breads and more.
As far as old school diners go, Irwin's Fountain is as nostalgic as they come. Transport back to the days when friends met at the local soda fountain for a bubbly drink and some of Irwin's delicious ice cream. Be sure to check their Facebook page for daily specials.
Located inside Lawrence Pharmacy since 1996, The Creek Grill offers three classic flavors of hand-scooped ice cream. But the simple deliciousness doesn't end there. Pick your favorite topping and the ice cream experts will mix it with vanilla to make whatever flavor your heart desires-be in pineapple, strawberry or any other flavor choice from their wide selection of topping blends. Be sure to grab one of their famous banana splits, or indulge in their milkshakes, malts, sundaes and more.
