Toni’s Treats & Eats
487 Delsea Drive
Hours: Open daily, 11 am-4 pm, but only April through October
Style: Ice cream parlor with chirpy blue-and-green walls and 51 flavors. It also serves classic lunch-counter food at five tables and a counter with four stools. Outdoors, there are a few umbrella-shaded tables.
Don’t Miss: Parfaits are served in a clear cup to show off their layered “sand-art” appearance, says owner Tracey Falisi. You can build your own with ice creams and a sprawling array of add-ins such as Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, caramel turtles and graham crackers ($5.50-$6.50). Milkshakes come in unusual flavors like coconut, cotton candy, German chocolate cake and rum ($4.25-$4.80). Customize your own ice cream sandwich with chocolate, vanilla or a twist, and additions such as crushed cherries, spiced apple or berries ($5.25). Birthday ice cream cakes are made to order ($20-$30). Savory choices are fairly staggering themselves: more than a dozen creatively topped, all-beef, foot-long hot dogs (like the Junkyard Dog, with sautéed green peppers and onions, chili, cheese and french fries, $5); nine burgers; and 15 sourdough grilled-cheese sandwiches. Then there are the nacho platters (French fries or tortilla chips with chili, cheese, bacon, jalapeños and sour cream, $6.99) and a baked tortilla shell filled with crispy Buffalo chicken ($6.99) or chili and cheddar ($6.99).
Head’s Up: There are 51 soft-serve flavors—made with natural extracts— and a custardy non-dairy fruit “whip” made from icy bananas (strawberries or blueberries can be added).
The Scoop: What began in 2005 as a frozen dairy stop has become a seasonal favorite for families and folks in the Vineland area and a welcome stop for those shuttling between the Shore and the Cherry Hill area or Philadelphia.Click here to leave a comment
