Fortunes Ice Cream
If there’s ever a case to be made for visiting the Hudson Valley during the summer and fall, it’s Fortune’s. This dessert spot is only open seasonally, and makes some of the best ice cream in the area. The local produce that studs each flavor tastes like it was literally picked that morning, which you can especially taste in their labne-based scoop that has rotating fruit (the best is sour cherry). The sundaes and milkshakes are often a combo of ice cream, housemade sauce, and some sort of crumbly, crunchy cookie topping. Sit and enjoy it on a bench in their shady side yard to minimize getting drips and/or crumbs all over yourself.
