Bramwell Edition: The Corner Shop
So, I feel like I need a disclaimer at the beginning of this blog post.
Last month, I spent a whole day at the Bramwell Oktoberfest having a super fun and drunk time. But, a huge part of even making this day trip to Bramwell was to try The Corner Shop, a restaurant listed on the 101 Unique Places to Dine in WV list. But after an entire day of drinking delicious beer after delicious beer after delicious beer, you kind of lose track of ... well ... everything.
It was later in the evening when I realized the restaurant was closing, and I HAD to get there because I traveled all this way and I needed to check them off my list! I, I'm sure, gracefully stumbled into the restaurant as they were closing. I said, I'm sure, in a super pathetic tone - "Can I still order something!" I was met with some shaking heads. Devastation. Then I jumped to the third level of dealing with a devastating situation: bargaining.
"But ... Can I ... just get an ice cream? Please please? I've been wanting to come here all day!" What is wrong with me? They either felt really sad for me or just wanted me to leave, so they made me an ice cream. Bless their hearts.
As a side note, The Corner Shop is this super adorable soda fountain, which is located in a former pharmacy. It's a very cool place, and if you have the opportunity to try more than just ice cream, please do so. They have floats, shakes, sundaes, splits, cones, as well as "millionaire" burgers, hotdogs, pulled pork sandwiches, paninis, soups, salads and more homemade items.
I can't even remember what specific ice cream flavor I got; I just remember it was caramel-ly, and it made my night. Delicious, light - almost fluffy ice cream - and very sweet. I was SO happy they accommodated me, they had a delicious ice cream flavor, and I got my sweet fix at the end of the night. Nothing better.
EDIT 5/5/17: I was able to go try their food - I got a cheeseburger with macaroni & cheese (mmmm), onion rings and a butter pecan milkshake. They were all absolutely delicious!
