Fentons Creamery
  4226 Piedmont Ave./Entrada Ave.  Enormous portions of housemade 12% to 14% butterfat ice cream is the name of the game at this well-established ice cream parlor, in business here since 1922 and remodeled in 2003 after a devastating fire.

Favorite flavors for Fentons freaks looking for a fix are toasted almond and Swiss milk chocolate.  Many of the sundaes are big enough  to share among several people.  If all those people eating out of one bowl is unappealing, ask for extra bowls.  Drinks include milkshakes served in old-fashioned metal canisters as well as sodas, floats, and sherbet freezes.  The menu also offers soups and salads, hamburgers, and an assortment of sandwiches, including the delicious house specialty--fresh crab salad on grilled sourdough.  Seating is in a large, open room with some booths around the perimeter and an atmospheric sea of old-fashioned marble-top tables and wire-back chairs in the center.

          Myrtle’s Lodge gift shop-gallery-museum is just across the street at #4211.  It’s a great place to purchase ice cream-related items and much more.  Kids will be hard to extract.
