The other night I was driving home during a summer storm and had to get gas…we are talking driving on fumes.
I pulled over at a random gas station that barely accepted credit cards at the pump, you know the kind. As the rain dripped through the over hang my gaze was drawn to a shiny red light of the neighboring business.
There it stood in the rain, parking lot filled with cars, people in raincoats with umbrellas, pushing and shoving their way into this random ice cream shop/grille. For a moment I thought to myself, “why on earth would this place be so hoppin, and who would actually make it a destination on a hot and humid night?”
Then somehow, my feet started walking towards the light, just like a bug zapper luring a mosquito. I was entering the Cone Zone & Grille, located in Cleveland (next to Westpark) at 4081 Rocky River Drive. There was a big banner on the front of the building reading “24 Flavors of Soft Serve”….Apricot. German Chocolate. Coconut. Peach. Peanut Butter. Just a few of the LOTS of flavors of soft serve.
I hadn’t eaten dinner so it gave me a free summer dinner pass for a small cup of cheesecake soft serve and WOW, was it tasty. Don’t judge a book by it’s cover. Fill your car and head over to the Cone Zone for a variety of smooth creamy treats. Next time, I’m thinking a mixture of peach, coconut & banana, tropical fun.
