Tiny’s Tasty Treats
By Charles Chandler
Tiny’s Ice Cream Shop located at l98 State Rd in Newaygo, MI is a destination for the seasonal summer crowds that travel along M 37 or gather in River City to float or paddle down the big Muskegon River. Here they ladle up those Michigan favorites, farm fresh soft serve, and Hudsonville scoop in about 50 different flavors or combinations. These can be delivered in cups and handmade cones or on Sundays, shakes, malts, and flurries. The day the N3 correspondent dropped by the Sunday specials were the All American blueberry and strawberry, yum.
According to sources Tiny’s began life as a 1960s burger joint when the Newaygo Dam was still operational. After several other changes, the business became an ice cream shop and in 2006 was purchased by Tammy and Jeff Hilliker. The rest of the story is what we now enjoy, a very successful ice cream shop that is a traditional favorite with both the local ice cream devotees and the seasonal crowd. Tiny’s has outside seating and a roomy inside dining area with a great view. This area is for those wishing to escape the cone melting summer heat or the noise when the motorcycle hatch is in progress. If you’re wanting a little more than ice cream, Tiny’s has a full food menu, including appetizers, dogs, barbeque, burgers, and fish and chicken baskets.
Tripadvisor gave Tiny’s Tasty Treats a rating of five circles and according to reviewer and apparent road warrior, Fuzzy B, “if you are into Chili Cheese Dogs and Great Ice Crème this is the place 4 U. Great service, Great People”
During popular times the parking can be a bit challenging but don’t despair, check a block up the hill around Brooks Park and the Library Complex for a parking spot.
