There's nothing better than stopping by Maxwells during the summer for a cone, shake, coffee, or bit of candy. My only beef is that they should stock more local ice cream (from Purity in Ithaca).

OK, the shakes are so good here I even get one when I visit Colgate in the freezing middle of winter. And bringing a box of their chocolates home always makes me immensely popular!
