Worth driving from anywhere!

Hodgman’s is the sort of place that calls out all summer to anyone with a sweet tooth and a love for old-fashioned Americana. It is a roadside custard shop where they make their own in only the basic flavors – vanilla and chocolate – plus one special each day. There are no mix-ins, swirls, chunks, chips, cookie dough, or candies polluting this dairy-pure manna. It’s just custard. But oh, what good custard it is: thick and creamy, totally unlike bland brands pumped full of air.

We like vanilla best, just plain. Nothing is more perfectly satisfying on a warm summer day, whether perched on a cone or served in a cup. Of course, you can go deluxe if you wish. Hodgman’s menu lists sundaes, frappes and floats, banana boats and thunderstorms, hot fudge royals, tin roofs, and tin lizzies. Whole custard pies are also available.

There is no indoor dining area, but facilities include a large covered picnic area to the side of the stand, where you can sit and lick in the shade. (Hodgman’s is closed Monday and Tuesday in the summer, and from Labor Day to Mother’s Day.)
