Kaisy's Delights, Rehoboth Beach, DE

From Austrian roots, by way of France and Washington D.C., Kaisy Delights is one part Parisian cafe, one part Hungarian Polka music, and one part Austrian chalet. You’ll find Polish-French fries, goulash soup, breakfast sandwiches, potato latkes, and sweet indulgences like ice cream, frappes, smoothies, pastries, and the house-made lemonade.

Sweet Nel’s, Wilmington, DE

When you are looking for a sweet treat, it can be difficult to choose between hot or cold dishes. Well, at Sweet Nel’s you can have your cake and eat it too—if by cake you mean ice cream, and if by eating you mean slurping. That’s because this scoop shop not only serves up Nelson’s Dutch Country Organic Ice Cream and house-made gelatos, but they also boast espressos and lattes made with LaColombe Coffee Roasters coffee beans.

Tre Sorelle Dolce Ice Cream & Italian Ice, Wyoming, DE

Featuring hand-dipped Hershey’s ice cream and Via Veneto Italian Ice, this small dessert stand also has another irresistible lure for both kids and adults alike.

The only thing better would be if you had a third hand.
