A proper banana split in Ptbo and surrounds???

My SO has somehow made it to adulthood without ever having had a banana split. I even had to describe to him what was in one! I must rectify this. I realize that I could probably just make one for him, but I think his first time should be special. I know this time of year may limit the available options, but does anyone have any suggestions as to where I can find him a banana split where there is an atmosphere appropriate to this experience?

  1. you know what, Peterborough is so rediculously lacking in.. well good food options. Sure, there are a few gems, but you can only go to them SO many times. That being said, I cant think of anywhere in ptbo to serve good homemade ice cream.. hm.. the only place outside I can think of is I THINK in Lindsay, right outside PTBO.. um, I cant remember the name for the life of me, but I know its right over a bridge (haha, i am SO sorry, I used to live in PTBO but have blocked most memories out so I dont recall names).. but I remember they had a large selection of ice cream and yogurt so I'm sure they do a split. Other than that all I can think of in town is like DQ or Baskin Robbins-no thanks.

    1. What about Kawartha Dairy? I don't know if they do the banana splits themselves but the ice cream is definitely worth it.

      I don't know if it's still there, but I've heard good things about Pop's Malt Shop in Bancroft (makes a nice day trip from Peterborough)...
