It’s Summer – and That Means Ice Cream! Where to Get The Best in Jersey City


After a chilly spring, topped with a worldwide quarantine, it’s safe to say we could all use a good ice cream pick me up right about now. Finally, the time has come – it’s warm enough to enjoy a delicious ice cream cone from one of the many ice cream parlors we have near our Jersey City apartments!

If you’re ready to indulge in a cone, check out one of these parlors for ice cream you can receive through takeout or delivery. Plus, many of them offer walk-up windows, making getting a cone to-go easier than ever.

Conez – Not too far from home, Conez is a colorful mom and pop shop that has dozens of hard ice cream flavors, quite a few soft-serve and specialty sundaes to choose from! You’re all set to stop in and get some for your family, just remember to wear your mask and keep a safe distance when on-line.

Torico – A Jersey City staple since 1968, Torico is offering both pick-up and delivery for all it’s hard ice cream flavors. You can still also get their ice cream cakes, ice cream pies, ice cream sandwiches, and all their other special ice cream delights as long as you put in a special order ahead of time. Their special ice cream flavors change seasonally, so we’re excited to see what they have in store for us in this summer!
