Cabot’s Ice Cream & Restaurant
743 Washington St., Newton
Cabot's, located in the Boston suburb of Newton, has long been a popular neighborhood spot, though many Bostonians make the trip, too. A family-run restaurant serving diner-esque comfort food (including all-day breakfast), Cabot's is designed like an old fashioned ice cream parlor: white-and-black tile floor, red booths, rotating counter seats, paper placemats. They have a noteworthy array of ice cream sundae options (70-plus favors and 35-plus toppings), along with the kind of indulgent classics that never do you wrong: chocolate malteds, banana boats, Belgian waffles topped with a few scoops, root beer floats. They also do cakes, pies, cupcakes, and sundae catering.
