Emma's is fantastic. We stopped in everyday for a treat while in Lake Placid. They have soft serve, chipwiches, and many flavors of hard ice cream, along with edible cookie dough and many other little treats. Make sure to stop here for your sweet tooth.

Soft-serve was delicious, but they need a better system... there's just not enough room for the line to go all the way to the back and then to order at the front. It makes no sense!

The ice cream was really good. Like - excellent good. And reasonably priced too. But oh my goodness - it can be super crowded, so time your visit wisely. The set up of entering and going to the very back of the store to line...More

We had delicious ice cream here almost every night. A cute stop on Main Street with good flavors of hard ice cream, served in a cone or dish. Other choices available, including soft serve, cookie sandwiches and brownies. Reasonable prices and pleasant service.
