Night dessert between Waltham & Newton?

megm Dec 11, 2001 12:53 PM

All right, here's a ridiculously specific request -

This Thursday, my husband and I are going to arrive very late at a potluck dinner in Newton (near Newton North High School). We'll be coming from Main St. in Waltham (Rte 20) ca. 9 pm.

Is there any place we can stop along the way to bring our friends a lovely dessert? a great local ice cream place, or late-night bakery, somewhere between the two locations?

Many thanks for your help,

    There's a great ice cream shop on Moody St. I think it's called Lizzy's. I don't know how late it's open.

    To continue on your journey to NNHS, stay on Moody St. It becomes Lexington St. in Newton and intersects with Comm. Ave in Auburndale. Take a left on Comm. Ave and continue for a mile or so.

      Actually, turn onto High St. (Store 24), which becomes Crafts St. Stay left of the fork at Waltham St. After you pass Albemarle playground stay right of the fork-- this is Lowell Ave which goes straight into Newtonville and the high school. Way shorter than going through Auburndale.

      One idea which is a little beyond where you're going in Newton is Ice Cream Works in Newton Highlands, which has very good ice cream. But you'd have to continue about 5-10 mins past Newton North on Walnut St. to get there. Another idea is Cabot's, on Washington St. in Newtonville (ice cream not as good - more of a fun place to sit in and eat sundaes).

      Hopefully someone has some recommendations for Nonantum, which I bet has some good dessert options.
