Wrought iron tables and chairs for Indulge ice cream shop
New ice cream shop, Indulge, offers up sweet flavors
The line is often out the door — a testament not only to this summer’s blistering heat, but to the seriously sinful taste of premium ice cream offered up at Indulge, Irondequoit’s newest ice cream parlor.
Located at 655 Titus Avenue, the interior of Indulge is infused with whimsy, from the giant mural depicting an idyllic summer scene, to the old time lamp posts and wrought iron tables and chairs that conjure a nostalgic ambience.
“I wanted it to feel like you were sitting outside on a patio on a perfect day,” says Mike Yaniga, an Irondequoit native and graduate of Irondequoit High School who co-owns the shop with longtime friend John Cramer, of Greece.
The two spent over seven months renovating the space, which in recent years has housed everything from a pet shop to a comic book store. The space is owned by The House of Guitars. HOG guru, Bruce Schaubroeck, is a fervent supporter of locally-owned businesses.
“I hate chain stores,” says Schaubroeck. “Mom-and-pop stores have passion and soul.”
As a tribute to their landlord, Indulge offers HOGberry ice cream, a mix of blueberry ice cream with strawberry swirls, created by Cramer, who concocts the extensive menu. A chef who grew up around food, Cramer is always playing with flavor combination.
