MALONE — Ice cream, burgers and more are once again available on Pearl Street, with the opening of Linda & Mike’s Ice Cream Stand & Gift Shop, Thursday morning.
According to Linda Tatro, who owns the business with Mike Tatro, both the ice cream stand, and gift shop opened at 11 a.m.
The ice cream stand and the gift shop have the same hours, according to Tatro, who said they are open Thursday through Sunday, from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Tatro said the store has been in business for 12 years and this year the stand has a new menu item, bacon cheeseburgers.
“We added it to the menu because a lot of people had been asking for them in the past, and we decided to include bacon cheeseburgers as an option,” Tatro said.
Tatro said she is looking forward to having customers at the Pearl Street location again.
“It’s our opening day,” Tatro said, “I’m anxious to see our customers back, we have a lot of loyal customers, we’ve been unable to see them this winter, and it will be good to see them again.”
Tatro said visitors to the stand can sit in picnic tables by the river and enjoy their meals and desserts.
Tatro said the ice cream stand was able to be open last year but due to COVID-19 restrictions the gift shop and the outdoor dining area were not able to open up until June.
