Manchester, CT is the home to Shady Glen - a classic ice cream shop that lures us back each year when we go East to visit family.
The stand alone store on Middle Turnpike is the one to visit (there is another less interesting store in a shopping center ) The Pistachio flavor is brimming with pistachios and flavor. they also have seasonal flavors: right now pumpkin is available - try the pumpkin in a sundae with toasted pecans and caramel sauce! Shady Glen is also known for their hamburgers and hot dogs with "wings" - crispy melted cheese. (I like the ice cream better than the burgers and dogs) Time is standing still here - go and have a taste.
