Beach House Hingham -- a new walk-up ice cream shop featuring delicious Gifford's, Bliss, and Richardson flavors -- is a welcome addition to the bathing beach.
This is good news for ice cream-lovers -- including those who will frequent the harbor area during the few remaining days of summer and in the fall days to come -- with beautiful views of the water and of the trees in the nearby grove as their leaves change color.
The owners of Stars on Hingham Harbor, Tosca, Caffe Tosca, and Fireking Baking Company -- which are all part of Eat Well, Inc. -- partnered to make this happen in part of the new bathhouse/snack shop/community room building.
"We thought it would be a great place for an ice cream shop because it is the perfect location right on the beach," Stars on Hingham Harbor General Manager Amanda Albee said recently.
This will be a seasonal business, running from April through October or November, depending on the weather. Hours of operation for the remainder of this season will be 11:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Social distancing and other COVID-19 requirements will be met.
Bathing Beach Trustee Alan Perrault said the trustees are pleased with this effort to begin to build out the kitchen/snack stand section of the building during these challenging times.
There are no plans to open the new community room this year, but the ice cream shop is a good start toward activating the building.
See you there!
