I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, if there is good ice cream in the area, I’ll find it. It’s one of my most redeeming qualities! And that lactose-laden treat-seeking spider-sense is how I ended up at The Minnesoda Fountain right off Main Street in Park Rapids. A haven for all those seeking refuge from Minnesota’s summer heat, the place has diner nostalgia written all over it. Formerly Schmeider’s, this place is the perfect stop for more than just ice cream, malts and shakes – they have sandwiches and homemade soups, too! I will admit though, the second I took a seat at that counter, fries and an old fashioned sundae were the only things on my mind. Ever been?
