It is almost impossible to stay in a bad mood when you walk into any of these pink-hued ice cream-yogurt-candy-everything-sweet shops. The smell of freshly baked waffle cones alone can lift your spirits. The thing that distinguishes Sloan’s is that it really packs flavor in its ice cream. If the sign reads, “carrot cake,” then you get chunks of carrot cake with cream-cheese frosting and walnut. If you order the rum raisin, then you get what seems like a few shot glasses of Myers’s dark rum. Oh, and make sure you check out the glass bathrooms. No joke. They’re kind of magical.
