Happy Pike Ice Cream & Snack Bar
Boat Accessible Dining
Friends led us to the Happy Pike Ice Cream & Snack Bar in West Chazy, NY, just next door to Monty Bay Marina. Before our ride, I didn't know West Chazy, New York bordered Lake Champlain! We get so caught up in our regular hang-outs. This was a nice change.
We rode our jet skis through the moored sailboats and beached them on shore. We walked up the slight hill and crossed the road. The view looking back towards the Lake was spectacular.
The Happy Pike is known for making donuts. They have specialty donuts that they make just once a week. You have to place your order in advance since they are only made to order!
They also make and serve donut cones for your ice cream - both Hershey's hard ice cream and soft serve (better known as creemees in Vermont). After getting my fill of fried string beans and noticing how big these donut cones are, I decided to skip the donut cone. However, Andy was game! He mentioned that they normally fill the donut cone with chocolate before adding ice cream. Andy wasn't up for the chocolate, so his ice cream went directly into the cone. It's worth a try!
