Seafood, Soft Serve and Slick’s

Meadow Ice Cream Restaurant in Littleton, NH doesn’t make their own ice cream, but I’ve always had great experiences there, so I had to share a quick post.

Sometimes, you’re in the mood for ice cream, and you go to an ice cream place. And in Littleton, Bishop’s is a solid option. Other times, you’re specifically in the mood for Slick’s ice cream, of Woodsville. But if you’re in Littleton and you don’t have the time to drive to Woodsville and back, you’ve got another option. Likewise, if you’re craving some fried seafood or a burger…and that would be Meadow Ice Cream.

This restaurant is rather unobtrusive. When I first moved to the North Country, they weren’t open, so I didn’t know what the scoop was. Turns out they are seasonal, open April-ish to October I believe. When I finally got around to trying their food, I was impressed.

I’ve gotten fried seafood here – clams are always a favorite of mine – and it’s been delicious. But I confess that what really drew me in was the sign, which often says “maple soft serve”. Yup. I had my first maple soft serve here, and it’s really fantastic. Full of flavor and creamy and perfect.

Since then, I found out about their hard ice cream, which is Slick’s. They’ve got indoor and outdoor seating too, which is definitely a step up from a food stand.

My husband and have been a few times, but we went this summer so that I could review it for you. We stuck to Slick’s ice cream this time around. It’s very affordable at $3.50 each for a medium with tax. Here’s what we got.

Strawberry Cheesecake – This is so good! Glorious crust chunks, etc. Read my full review on Slick’s here. I think this might be the best cheesecake ice cream in New Hampshire!

Cookies and Cream – Unfortunately, this one isn’t my favorite. The base is just really bland – it isn’t a distinct vanilla or anything. Personally, I want my cookies and cream base to taste like the cream in Oreos or maybe be a nice vanilla. Unfortunately while the cookies were great, the base just didn’t do it for me.

White Mountain Raspberry – This is vanilla with raspberry swirl and white chocolate chips. It’s nice, although the raspberry isn’t the best I’ve had.

Coconut Raspberry Swirl – The coconut is really fun in this!

So if you’re craving Slick’s or Seafood or maple soft serve, consider stopping by! I’ve found they always close earlier than I expect so you might want to call ahead.
