Ice Cream Parlor for Party

I'm planning a first birthday party for my son, and I am expecting about 30 adults and 10 children, so we were planning on doing a make your own sundae party at an Ice Cream Parlor. Does anyone know of any places that are large enough for something like that or any experiences with a party like that of their own? We live in Hatboro, and we have family in Lower Bucks, so somewhere in the Central Bucks / Montco area would be the best, but I'd be willing to do something in the city or a little farther from home if it is a really good location.

      Another possibility though the venu is small is the reopened Goudnoe's Dairy bar in Newtown.
