The first stop on my trip to upstate New York, the week of July 13th, 2015 was Donnelly’s Corners Soft ice Cream, at the corner of State Route 86 and 186, between Saranac Lake and Lake Clear (the address is 1564 State Route 86, Saranac Lake, New York). No trip to upstate New York is complete without a stop here! I wrote about Donnelly’s on my trip last year, so see that post for more in-depth information.
Last year I arrived at Donnelly’s on a Tuesday, and this year turned out to be no exception! Tuesday means the two-flavor twister is vanilla and either red or black raspberry. Black raspberry and vanilla are my favorite Donnelly’s flavors! This was not planned, but worked out beautifully!
Donnelly’s consistently gets great reviews. Check out the Yelp pages.
They’re open 11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. The shack closes down after Labor Day weekend.
Donnelly’s Corners is also on the registry of “Very Special Places” in upstate New York.
So, you have the rest of the summer! Make at least one stop at this iconic upstate New York landmark! I’ve been going to it since the 1960s! There is no better ice cream!
