This ice cream / sandwich shop is an icon in historic downtown Florence. This shop offers the basics, but it is a local fave for sure!

If you want good ice cream and old timey burgers and dogs, along with other sandwiches, this is the place. I am a big fan of the banana split. It can be crowded, but there is a reason. The service staff is really good and...More

Any visit to Florence must include a visit to Trowbridge's for lunch or ice cream....or both! Good, simple food at very reasonable prices. Service is superb and friendly. May get crowded around lunch time but any wait is worth it.
