Have you heard that the Essex Ice Cream Cafe is currently for sale? Well, it’s true. This small ice cream parlor was transformed into much more by current owner Wayne Gryk—serving not only ice cream but gourmet coffee, snacks, lunch and a fun collection of Essex merchandise. The Cafe’s shelves host a variety of local products including crafts, greeting cards, books, and delicious local foods. This Main Street shop is a hub of traffic every summer and has lately even been open year-round to the town’s delight.
What will the future hold for the Essex Ice Cream Cafe? Perhaps a new owner will decide. Maybe that new owner will be you? Let’s hope that whoever becomes the new owner will preserve the ice cream tradition, or if not will come up with another fun or needed business in Essex. What do you hope for?
