50 Flavors of Ice Cream, Fried Food Heaven, Mini Golf at Kool Kone in Wareham, Massachusetts

 Kool Kone, Wareham, Massachusetts

America loves its ice cream and fried foods.

In Wareham, Mass., proof of this unpretentious culinary infatuation can be seen as summer crowds consistently gather day and night at Kool Kone to enjoy hard ice cream, soft serve, sundaes (including fried banana!), dips, frappes, floats, gigantic fried seafood and chicken plates, heaping servings of onion rings, and many other comfort food favorites.

From Route 6, there's no mistaking the red building with the cartoon font business sign, and drawings of ice cream and a stick figure person enjoying a cone. Once navigating the packed parking lot, you'll find an order-at-the-window, classic cream stand set-up, a small indoor dining room and a patio area with picnic tables. There's even an 18-hole mini golf course on the premises! This is roadside Americana at its best and a great representation of the quintessential ice cream stand.. and a bit more.

The menu is a long read with its 50 flavors of ice cream and myriad food selections, but in addition to ice cream and fried foods, other highlights and favorites includes lobster rolls, kale soup, terriyaki steak tips, chicken parm, quesedillas, hot dogs, and hamburgers. The prices are retro, the servings substantial and the atmosphere intimately tying in to the "good old summertime." Its Cape Cod area location further enhances the fabulous summertime vibe.

Kool Kone's name might be that of sensational spelling -- that is, deliberately spelling a word or phrase wrong for effect -- but let's forget about that and focus on its sensational summertime presence of an American tradition in the form of an ice cream stand and comfort food destination. We think you'll love this place!

Kool Kone is located at 374 Marion Rd. (Route 6) in Wareham MA. Tel. (508) 295-6638. Web site: Facebook fan page:
