the ice cream is ok - nothing special. doesn't have soy ice cream though - so they lose a lot of potential customers. they aren't as busy as they used to be - not sure why

The name is now Natalie's Place. I was out running errands and decided to stop for a waffle cone. No chocolate in the soft serve. It's just plain (not creamy) vanilla ice cream that they add a couple drops of flavor to and remix. I opted for peanut butter. It hardly tasted like a hint of fake peanut butter. Gross!... More

It's now called Natalie's Diner. Great home cooked meals and creamy ice cream. Ice cream window with seating out side. Tables also inside very small and cramped. But , the food is worth it.

A quick stop for some ice cream on a warm day is a traditional summertime treat. Swing by Meola's for some excellent ice cream and you'll find that treat. The ice cream is excellent and they feature an extremely wide variety of flavors so you won't have any problem finding something you'll like. But take a pass on the food... More

We are ice cream snobs, and Meola's gets a thumbs up from us. The fat free yogurt is excellent and I think there may be over 70 flavor choices of ice cream.

We stopped here on our way through town and had some great ice cream. Their mint cho chip frozen yogurt was good and the peanut butter ice cream was excellent.

I never thought in the middle of busy Leominster with cars driving by, I would find such delicious ice cream. Their Almond Joy is out of this world! YUM! Maple Walnut is a close second.
