Locally speaking, once you eliminate the frozen custard joints and the chains, there's not much to choose from. That's not to diss Serendipity; it's just a sad comment on the frozen-confection landscape. Be that as it may, we come back again and again for Beckie Jacobs' delicious ice creams, from Chocolate Orange (two great tastes that taste great together!) to Gold Coast Chocolate (dark as night, rich as sin) to Strawberry Cheesecake, Vermont Maple Walnut, Black Cherry and Peppermint. Some of our favorite St. Louis restaurants proudly serve Serendipity's ice creamBlue Water Grill, Modesto, St. Louis Fish Market, Terrene and Trattoria Marcella, to name a few. But we like ours best straight from the sourceand in a cone.
