2019 Best of the Boat ice cream/frozen yogurt: Lyon’s Corner Drug & Soda Fountain

There’s nothing better than an old-fashioned ice cream and soda fountain to let you enjoy life’s simple pleasures. Our voters think so, as Lyon’s Corner Drug scooped up the competition in the town’s Best Ice Cream category.

The keys: old-fashioned counter charm, 11 different flavors and “a couple of specialties.” 

“The counter has moved around inside the store a lot,” says co-owner Wendy Lyon. “We’ve had a lot of old-timers come in and say that it used to be somewhere else. But it’s a very important landmark. A lot of kids have grown up with it and worked here. It’s great to have a piece of town’s history here.”

Bonus: They keep the kiddie scoops at just a dollar.
