Cairo Edition: Shemp's Cafe

Shemps ice creamA little midday jaunt to Berdine's Five & Dime (which is so cool) led us to North Bend State Park (also cool), which led us to stumble upon Shemp's Cafe. As we made our way through the little town of Cairo, this ice cream shop just popped up out of nowhere. An who am I to say no to ice cream?

Shemps ice creamThe shop has an old-school Three Stooges theme. They have a cute ice cream bar with all sorts of flavors like cherry nut, Turtle Tracks, Moose Tracks and butter pecan.

Shemps ice creamThey also have a food menu full of fried appetizers, sandwiches, wings, pizza and stromboli.

Shemps ice creamI ordered a Turtle Tracks ice cream cone, because I can't really think of anything more fitting. Fun Fact: Moose Tracks- vanilla ice cream with chocolate chunks and peanut butter cups all swirled together in chocolately peanut butter goodness. Turtle Tracks- vanilla ice cream with chocolate caramel turtle chunks, with chocolate covered pecans and a caramel swirl.

Shemps ice creamVerdict: Turtle Tracks are pretty good. But, it was almost a little TOO sweet. It was kinda like pure sugar. And, I was totally bummed it wasn't this old ice cream shop restored and was instead crafted to look like that. But, it's cute and has ice cream, so it can't be all that bad.
