Anyone been to Sebastian & Alexander's Ice cream in Waltham?

I just drove by this place on Main St., adjacent to Cafe on the Common, and in the window they say they make their own ice cream. Has anyone tried it?

  1. I live a couple of miles away, but have only been there 2 or 3 times. The ice cream was good, but I prefer Toscanini's or Christina's. It's also a coffee shop with baked goods. Or is that Cafe on the Commons? The two sides are connected.

    1. I've only been once and the ice cream was good but that was more than a year ago. Their specialty is fruit flavors. Part of the reason I've only been once is that it's never open when I drive by. I've asked about the ever-changing hours at the cafe and they said they have staffing problems. I don't know how an ice cream place that isn't open evenings in the summer will stay in business.
