Boston Restaurant Blog -- May, 2006

Even though it wasn't all that warm over the past weekend, we couldn't resist going to the Dairy Dome in Stoneham for ice cream on Saturday night. The Dairy Dome has some of the best ice cream in the Boston area (though Kimball Farms in Carlisle is still my favorite). We actually tried the soft serve at the Dairy Dome for the first time, and it was just about the best we have had, too. Granted, you can't do a whole lot to make soft serve ice cream a lot better (or worse) than other places, but it was truly excellent stuff.
The Dairy Dome, which is on Route 28 just south of Stoneham Center, is housed in an old gas station, and actually does have a dome. The former Beacon oil station was built a few years after World War I, and the place is an historic landmark today. But you don't need to be a history lover to fall in love with the Dairy Dome. One taste of the ice cream, whether it is the regular or soft serve, will make you a believer in this unusual ice cream stand located a few miles north of Boston.
By the way, now that the warm weather is (almost) here, I am sure that people will be looking to head to various ice cream stands around the area. If so, we have a list of ice cream stands in Boston and New England that might be able to be of help to you.
