Lizzy's Homemade Ice Cream is a tiny store that's easy to miss but comes highly recommended by Boston-area food lovers. When I stumbled upon it one summer day, I simply couldn't resist.
Overwhelmed by the options, I asked the server, "What's the most popular flavor?"
Easy. Charles River Crunch.
A mix of coffee and chocolate, the ice cream's brown color is a nod to Boston's infamous dirty water. (Don't worry, it was cleaned up long ago.)
The scoop of Lizzie's didn't last long, but it was the perfect treat for a summer afternoon spent window shopping in Harvard Square.
