If you ask me, the best part about dining at Beaches and Cream Soda Shop are the desserts. Get a classic sundae, like a Banana Split, or a decadent treat like the No Way Jose topped with peanut butter and chocolate. You can also get milkshakes and floats too.
One of the most popular dessert options is the Kitchen Sink. This showstopper sundae includes 8 scoops of ice cream topped with every topping they have at Beaches and Cream. It serves 4 and is one impressive looking sundae. Not sure you and your family can complete a Kitchen Sink challenge? Try the Mini Kitchen Sink.
