Burlington Bay Market & Café — This waterfront market's seasonal creemee stand offers delicious vanilla and chocolate, but you've got to try the maple. Views of Lake Champlain from the prime patio seating can't be beat.
Vermont Cookie Love — Since selling its first batch at the Shelburne Farmers Market in 2007, Vermont Cookie Love has gained a loyal following for its chewy cookies and logs of frozen dough. While those sweets are now available in 60 stores and markets, Route 7 travelers can pull over at the home base — the Love Shack in North Ferrisburgh — for a just-baked cookie, scoop of hard ice cream or a dense creemee made from local milk and premium ingredients. Flavors include chocolate, vanilla, maple, coffee and twist. Also on the menu are homemade drinks, sorbets and ice-cream-cookie sandwiches made to order. All of this can be savored at the picnic tables and wooden benches by the Love Shack’s walk-up window.
