Staten Island - Boo Boo and Lyle's Ice Cream and Pie

comestible | Jun 12, 2011 01:27 PM

A new shop at the corner of Beach and Van Duzer in Stapleton. It has been open about two weeks, and was initiated by the owner of Vida Restaurant down the block.

A pleasant little place with a few tables, counter seating at a window, and small kid's activity center.

Ice cream is from Jane's Ice Cream in Kingston, NY. Pies and pastries are sometimes homemade, sometimes from specialty bakers. Lavazza espresso is served.

I visited twice and had two pies that were great...a blueberry and a strawberry rhubarb. Those are the big attraction for me, as well as the coffee...the espresso is surely the best you'll find in the local area. I enjoyed the ice cream too...coconut almond had good strong flavors.

Worth trying, especially in the summer heat.
