Homemade ice cream, egg creams, and a decor that practically shouts "Greased lightning!" keep fans coming back to this Forest Hills soda fountain decade after decade. Lovers and friends grab Eddie's Sweet Shop's wooden booths and old-school bar stools to enjoy well-executed ice cream flavors like chocolate, butter pecan, and rum raisin. The hot fudge sundae topped with walnuts and marshmallows is a favorite among devotees; its size suggests it was created in a time before calorie counts. Fresh whipped cream is made throughout the day, and it adds decadence to the cappuccinos and malted milk shakes that flow from behind the marble counter. Paper placemats, metal spoons, and classic ice cream scoopers ensure the nostalgic elements of the old-school ice cream parlor go well beyond the storefront sign.
