Kennedy's Ice Cream Bar Is Opening in Melrose

What appears to be a unique ice cream shop will soon be coming to the northern suburbs of Boston.

According to an article in the Patch, Kennedy's Ice Cream Bar is planning to open in Melrose, moving into the space at the Whole Foods Plaza on Main Street where Honey Dew Donuts had been. Christine Kennedy, who will be running the shop with her husband John, says that a soft serve with a "unique Belgian chocolate dipping station of 12 flavors" and toppings will be set up in the space, and that the style is "going to be like no other," also mentioning that the ice cream will come from Blake's, a restaurant and ice cream place in Manchester, NH.

The Patch notes that Christine Kennedy's sister-in-law Lisa Kennedy O'Dowd was behind the Melrose location of Honey Dew Donuts until it shut down earlier this year.

The address for the new Kennedy's Ice Cream Bar in Melrose is 888 Main Street, Melrose, MA, 02176.

Thanks to Richard Auffrey of The Passionate Foodie for initially bringing this to our attention.
