Spruce Pond Creamery (and Franklin Flatbread)

Haha minus the cheese sauce, this sounds pretty perfect. Although maybe...

If you've been reading this blog for any length of time, I'm sure you've picked up on the fact that along with ice cream, pizza is another favorite of mine. And there is one place that combines these two indulgences - Franklin Flatbread & Spruce Pond Creamery.

Since this is technically an Ice Cream Friday post, let's do what every kid wishes they could do and start with dessert! Walk up to the window and peruse the list of their homemade ice creams. So far, the few flavors that I have tried have all been excellent: cake batter, cookie dough, and Double Baked (vanilla ice cream with cookie dough and brownie chunks).

Enjoy your frozen treats on the small deck overlooking a small river or beneath a tree. Or do what I do and head inside for some pizza. The flatbreads here are terrific! Even better, they are made with all organic ingredients including the flour in the crust, which is thin and crispy thanks to a wood oven. 

On both visits, I was "boring" and ordered just the American Revolutions pie, which is topped with plenty of pepperoni and cheese. However, they do have some delicious sounding varieties that I hope to try soon.

And believe me, I will be back there soon. Pizza PLUS ice cream basically assures that!

Franklin Flatbread & Spruce Pond Creamery is located on 370 King Street, Franklin MA.


  1. That is definitely my ideal ice cream sundae! You made some good choices regarding the flavours but the pizza...c'mon where was the craziness there :p

    You'll love Lygon St here which is the Italian Hub- I'll give you some recommendations but you MUST go to my favourite ice cream place- Burnt fig, date and walnut and christmas pudding flavoured goodies to name a few ;)

    1. Haha I know, totally boring pizza choice but sometimes the traditional just calls out to me ;)

      Mmmm burnt fig ice cream?! That sounds amazing and unique - I will definitely find my way by there for a scoop of that!

      Funny thing about Christmas pudding - this past year was the first time I'd ever had it. It doesn't seem to be a thing here (at least not my area). We were in Africa and all the Australians in our tour group thought it was strange that we'd never had it!

  2. Damn, if only I lived in MA. I'd probably be there every other day.. I mean with the wide variety of options, it just makes sense to try them all out :)

    1. Haha it takes a lot of restraint not to go there too often. ;)

      If you're ever in this area of MA, definitely worth a stop in. Of course, let me know if you ever are and I could give you other places to check out too!
