Gracie's Ice Cream in Union Square, Somerville, MA | by Lillian Lee

With this one flavor, Gracie’s Ice Cream has won me over as being the best ice cream shop in town. Located in Union Square in Somerville, the shop is also best known for their toasted fluff cone.

But it’s the Earl Grey that won my heart over.

We make our ice cream right in our shop—about five feet away from where it’s served—in tiny, tiny batches. When possible, we make our own ingredients in house, but we also use a lot of cookies, candy, and potato chips. There are always 12 flavors at a time, one of which is non-dairy.

[Updated April 8, 2017] Flavors are on rotation so definitely check out their IG @graciesflavors account for daily updates of flavors. I stopped by the other day again, and there was no earl grey. Luckily, there was a new flavor to save the day – black sesame honey.

check out the marshmallow fluff that oozes all the way to the bottom of the cone!

Looking forward to the return of earl grey this summer!
