Ridgewood NJ, we started a bit of a hub bub over ice cream , so we took a break from the blog yesterday to hit up Van Dyk’s in Ridgewood . Van Dyk’s has been around for ages and is one of those places that makes Ridgewood , Ridgewood.
Considered by many to be the “best ice cream” in Bergen County if not all of the Northern New Jersey area. they literally make the perfect homemade ice cream: not too sweet, not too rich, and the texture is the perfect balance between soft cream and hardness. and you can’t beat their prices!! roughly $4-$5 for a double scoop and the portions are extremely generous.
Van Dyks is an institution around here . If you have never been the place looks like a house from the outside so it’d be easy to miss if there wasn’t a huge line on warm summer nights. They have a good mix of traditional and more creative flavors.
