It’s only been a few years since Sylvan Beach (now Taharka Brothers) closed their ice cream shop in Mount Vernon. But those few summers without our favorite locally-made ice cream shop have been long and hot—made livable only by the consolation sweetness of snowballs. So when I heard that a new ice cream shop would be taking the place of the old pharmacy on the corner of Chestnut and the Avenue, I knew it would all be okay. I also started peeping through the paper-covered windows every time I walked by, and compulsively checking their Facebook and Twitter feeds. When, oh when would they open??? Didn’t they realize how hot it was? And how much we all just wanted some dang ice cream? Well, even if patience is a virtue I was not born to have, the wait is over. The Charmery (hurray!) is open.
