I went back after a long winter and found I think over 100 flavors of ice cream, numerous sundaes, and candy I'd forgotten about as a kid (bottle caps and squirrel nut candies). The service was prompt, helpful and when I wanted to taste a...More

Friends and I stopped in to Cravings for some ice cream and weren't disappointed. There is a great atmosphere inside and the ice cream was delicious. They had a lot of different flavors and the staff was super great.

This place has been in Wakefield Center for a really long time, I think since the 1920s and still, has that old times feeling. The staff is always friendly and the ice cream is great plus lots of snacks, penny candy, and ice cream cakes...More
