Local Gems: Eddie’s Sweet Shop
Updated: Sep 2, 2019
If you’re ever in Forest Hills for a date night, stop by Cinemart Cinemas for a movie and then head to Eddie’s Sweet Stop for a sundae afterward.
Cinemart Cinemas has been around since my childhood and after falling into disrepair over the years it’s been renovated with leather recliners and a snappy little concessions area complete with subway tile and marquee lighting.
We were there recently and stopped in at Eddie’s afterward for a quick scoop of ice cream (pistachio for me, butter pecan for him). This old school ice cream parlor has been open since 1925, serving ice cream out of metal coupes. Next time, I’m going to bring a bigger appetite and go for a banana split.
