Shorty’s Ice Cream & Pizza
By Alicia Jaimes
Attention all ice cream-lovers, if you, like myself, have “eat yourself into an ice cream coma” on your summer bucket list, then Shorty’s Ice Cream & Pizza should be your next destination.
Located at 12024 Cypress Ave, Sand Lake, MI 49343, Shorty’s is the place to go when you are craving something sweet at a fair price. As a true ice cream fanatic I have encountered many ice cream facilities where the serving sizes were one size too small and two dollars too much. Imagine my surprise (and delight) when my family of five ordered whatever we wanted--including sundaes, cones, milkshakes, hard and soft serve--and it didn’t break the bank. It was an even better surprise when my small-sized bubblegum flavor burst resembled that of a medium while my mother’s black cherry cone (large) was XL.
Though I love the variety this ice cream shop has to offer: sundaes, floats, flurries, cones, shakes and malts; my favorite would have to be their banana split. Not only are these beauties substantial in size, their presentation is impeccable. Being a smaller shop, it can be busy, but you won’t wait in line for too long, the finishing products never look rushed, and the taste will have you wishing it was summer all year round.
As summer comes to an end, do not fret, Shorty’s sells pizza to-go as those cooler days begin to creep through. From a person who has spent many nights combining pizza and Netflix, I would definitely order their pizza again as well.
Worth the drive.
