Declining dessert in a neighborhood restaurant, it was suggested that we head to Emack & Bolio's for a post-meal treat. And, indeed, the selection of in-house ice cream, their generous, albeit expensive, portions, and their creamy consistency topped off an evening out in Albany. Emack...More

Great ice cream, great staff, great vibe, great memories. On a road trip, who wouldn't care to stop for ice cream? But 45 minutes because it was such a nice place. Music, seating, games, pictures on the wall. Just wonderful. thanks!

I'm sorry to hear you of your experience. When cones are handled we always use napkins or wax paper so hands do not touch the food. Also for scooping we have running fresh water in a dipwell to keep the scoops clean. They also regularly...More

It's so easy to keep a freezer full of top-notch interest flavors from the supermarket, but every once in a while it's good to branch out and try a couple of scoops of something not so mass produced. We managed to arrive during live-music time,...More
