This is definitely THE PLACE when visiting the Adamstown/Reading area during the summer for a good old fashioned lunch/dinner/snack/ice cream experience. The restaurant is located next to a stream that provides entertainment for the kids thanks to the ducks. The menu is limited but everything is delicious as well as the ice cream that is made on site. If stopping by the first time walk up to the counter when you are ready to place your order. Then step back and the person who took your order will somehow remember you and will gather everything. Be aware that credit cards are not used and all dining is outside. My wife and I look forward to eating here during the summer months and wish it was open year-round.

If your in Adamstown pa area there is no more popular place for ice cream. It's a throwback 1950s style eatery with picnic benches and a nice brook with ducks. The food is not for gluten free warriors but is a fun place for those naughty days.

Boehringers feels like it's been there forever. It was a crowded day when we visited - the day before they were due to close for the season. The atmosphere was fun - ate our cones at the picnic table next to the stream. My son had a burger - nothing special. They had room for a variety of ice cream flavors on their overhead menu board, but because they were closing the next day, they had run out of a lot. So, I would definitely go back to sample more in the spring.

We frequent Boehringer's when we want to just go somewhere, sit,
relax, and enjoy. The fact that they have some of the best ice cream
around here just adds to the fun. Food is good and very affordable.
They have outdoor seating overlooking a stream and kids and ducks play
there together.
Sorry it will be closing soon, but we look forward to our first visit next
Spring!
