Jimmy’s Ice Cream. I have passed by it only about a bazillion times, but I have never thought to go in.
I was craving a sweet, and after dropping one child at Pocono Youth Orchestra, and the other at Brownies, I saw my chance.
There was a bit of a crowd, which surprised me.
The man behind the counter smiled, and asked if it was my first time there.
He asked me what flavors I like, and I said I like chocolatey, caramel, coffee, goodness.
He gave me a sample of the cappuccino gelato, which I quickly decided to have. He then asked if I would like another flavor in the same cup. I could have more than one, he explained, for the same price!
Salted caramel was my second choice.
He was actually Jimmy, of Jimmy’s Ice Cream. And everything in the place is 100% homemade.
I grabbed a corner table, so I could indulge, and people watch.
I am usually a day late, and a dollar short for most things, so I am sure most of you know about this place, but if you don’t, it’s located at 1113 North Ninth Street, across from Weis Market, in Stroudsburg.
He told me he was making Cannoli gelato today.
This could become a very bad habit.
And now for something I bet you didn’t know.
Did you know that Great Bear Golf Club, located at 1 Great Bear Way, in East Stroudsburg, has Pasta night on Thursdays, and that it is unbelievably delicious, and anyone can go there, and eat?
Check out the view!
The chef cooks to order your choice of pasta and whatever you want in it, right before your eyes. There is a gigantic salad bar, and dessert bar, and you can eat as much as you want.
I had clams and shrimp in mine.
And cheese. Oh how I love cheese.
The amount of food you get in comparison to price, is a steal. Plus, there is a kids price as well. There is something for everybody. Any kind of sauce, even chicken parmigiana.
You can order appetizers too.
Pasta night at Great Bear Golf Club is every Thursday. They also have a beautiful fine dining room that I don’t think too many folks are aware of, but is a perfect spot for a romantic night out. The menu is beautifully done, and they also have an extensive wine list.

I just realized that I started this blog post with dessert, and ended with the main course. Hmm…very telling.
