The Scoop

[click image to enlarge]

Brigham's Restaurant has been scooping out the richest creamiest ice cream on Beale Street in Wollaston for many decades. It was the place to go before or after taking in a movie at Wolly Theater located just across the street. Brigham's developed a reputation for generous portions and rich, creamy cones and sundaes; the hot fudge was to die for. Here come the cravings . . .

The businesses in Wollaston seem to be turning over, so I thought it might be a good time to document this old time favorite. It might not look too interesting from the outside but come back tomorrow for a photo of the vintage mahogany interior, truly a gem.

I like Brighams, and the contests that they hold. My grandmother lives in Arlington and I took her to that location for lunch :)
