      Stopped in yesterday. It's a cute little place and the staff was very nice. Right now, it's Edy's ice cream and Philadelphia water ice & not much else. A few tables outside, but I don't remember any seating inside, though there's plenty of space. It is a nice little place, but the ice cream isn't anything exceptional.
      A little further down 113 (next to Wawa at 309) the pretzel place added Sweet Pea ice cream. I haven't tried it yet, but it looks good/local/interesting & they have an outpost in Doylestown, too

        Is the pretzel place up and running again?

        My daughter stopped into The Hickory Stick and as JohnnyK mentions below, they serve Edy's ice cream, which you can buy at the grocery store. She was less than impressed. I have been to Sweet Pea several times and their ice cream is homemade on the premises. They have standard flavors as well as unique flavor combinations which change frequently. Prices are good for quality ice cream - $3 for one scoop and $5 for two scoops. They have indoor seating as well as a walk up service window.

          Having been to both Sweet Pea, as well as Chubby's Dairy Barn as well as OwowCow... Chubbys and Owowcow are heads better than Sweet Pea.. never been to Hickory Stick.

            Agree about Owowcow's superiority. Hope the new place has a chance, but w/ Edy' s as it' s mainstay, I'm not sure. Thanks all for the info.
