Life certainly looks different right now for all of us, and local, small businesses are certainly no different. While some local businesses have closed their doors while waiting for the COVID-19 pandemic to pass, many remain open and operating under special social distancing guidelines.
We’ll be letting you know about some of these businesses for the next few weeks, so that you can support them if you’re able.
This week we’re taking a look at Lancaster’s favorite spots for sweet treats:
Lancaster Cupcake – open for carry-out or delivery, and even offering national shipping, Lancaster Cupcake is the perfect place to get a sweet treat these days!
Lancaster Sweet Shoppe – downtown’s stroopie hot spot, Lancaster Sweet Shoppe is open for curb-side pick-up, one-at-a-time ordering, or local delivery for orders over $20. Get your candy, stroopies, and Pine View Dairy ice cream.
Penny’s Ice Cream – another downtown favorite, Penny’s is offering pint pick-up (curb-side) and local delivery within 15 miles of their Prince Street store (weekends only).
Son’s – grab ice cream or Italian ice at East Pete’s local favorite with a convenient drive-through option.
Achenbach’s – a Hartranft Team (and Lancaster County) favorite, Achenbach’s is still open, with slightly adjusted hours. Grab your goodies to go or call ahead for curb-side service!
Lapp Valley Creamery – if you’re local to the New Holland area, or looking for a scenic drive to pass the time, Lappy Valley is still open and offering their delicious ice cream, with a drive-through option
Fox Meadows Creamery – a great spot in Ephrata for yummy food and even better ice cream, Fox Meadows is offering a “drive-in” solution as well as local delivery for those close by.
Pine View Dairy – still open for groceries, milk, and ice cream to-go (no hand-dipped options being offered), only 1 person per family in the store, please.
This is in no way an exhaustive list of what’s available, but some delicious options for you!
We recommend finding your favorite spot on social media to check for any revised policies and hours before you head out. If you’ve got a favorite place we haven’t featured here, please share in the comments!
