After lots of walking and a couple museums, I was in the mood for something sweet. The Milk Shake Factory sounded like the perfect place to satisfy my craving, so I stopped by the downtown Pittsburgh location.
The dessert shop features handspun shakes, gourmet chocolates, and craft sundaes. They make the ice cream in their stores using farm fresh dairy locally sourced from Rivendale Farms.
All their gourmet milkshakes sounded so good. I finally decided to get the Fried Ice Cream – a vanilla shake with clover honey, sugar, and cinnamon, topped with whipped cream, fried ice cream sprinkles, and a maraschino cherry. Yum!
The shake was creamy, rich, and delicious. I would have no problem coming back to try their ice cream sundaes and other milkshakes. Good stuff.
After my yummy sweet fix, I walked back to the hotel to chill and digest. I couldn’t wait for my dinner reservation later that night.
