What is the most famous ice cream shop in Massachusetts?
If you want to try the world’s best ice cream, you’ll have to visit Toscanini’s Ice Cream & Coffee in Cambridge. The famous ice cream shop in Massachusetts, in fact, earned props from the New York Times for having “the world’s best ice cream,” but you really have to try it for yourself. The vanilla, in fact, is just one of the flavors that are to die for. Other flavors you might want to try include lemon vanilla, gingersnap molasses, and cocoa pudding. Consider ordering the incredibly popular burnt caramel ice cream, the ice cream shop’s specialty.
