Ice Cream: It’s Not Just for Breakfast Anymore!

Interlaken, NY – If you find yourself sniffing a certain unusual sweetness in the air along Route 89 between Ithaca and Seneca Falls, you have most likely discovered the area’s tastiest new attraction.

Cayuga Lake Creamery, a family-run, premium ice cream emporium along the Lake area’s wine trail, has officially opened its doors.

The enticing aroma of homemade waffle cones has been luring ice cream lovers off the porch and into the cozy dining area where they’ve been delighted by the choice of more than 25 flavors of ice cream and sorbet, made right on the premises using only the finest ingredients – many of them local.

Jeff Kostick and Judy Gonroff, owners of the creamery, were drawn to the region 30 years ago by their love of the unique landscape and the friends they made. All this time, as they vacationed by the lake, they dreamed of a day that they could make the area their home.

They hit on the idea for Cayuga Lake Creamery two years ago and since then, they have become experts in all aspects of ice cream production, even going so far as to attend Ice Cream University, an innovative graduate school of frozen confections. This past winter was spent honing their skills and developing some of the unique flavors – Passionate Peanut Butter Cup, Tiramisu, or Beary Cotton Candy – that are now enjoyed by their customers.

“Our whole family loves ice cream and we thought that people around here would appreciate homemade quality and a friendly place to stop by. Along with ice cream, sorbet, low-carb frozen treats, and ice cream cakes, we serve light breakfast foods (coffee, breakfast sandwiches, biscotti and more) and quick lunches (hamburgers, hot dogs, pizza, etc.).

In addition to its walk-up window, Cayuga Lake Creamery offers indoor dining, deck seating, and a beautiful landscaped picnic area. Altogether, a fun and relaxing stop along Route 89.
