The dish on Long Island's restaurant and food scene.

Snowflake Ice Cream Shoppe, the East End's bastion of  cool refreshment, welcomes the early strawberry season with super sundaes.

Have your berries in the ice cream and as a topping. It's one of the delectable tastes of spring-summer and will keep you occupied while waiting for the peach season to arrive.

I'm also partial to Snowflake's black raspberry ice cream, akin to a creamy madeleine, stirring up memories of sundaes gone by.  And, of course, there's the creamsicle flavor for nostalgia, too.

Snowflake's soft-serve ice cream also is guaranteed to revive your affection for the style, as is the look of the joint. Sit on a bench and enjoy. The friendly staff deserves a tip, too. How do you resist a tip jar that announces "college & beer"?

Snowflake is near the Tanger Outlet Center, near the Long Island Expressway. Worth the trip. Bring a cooler to stock up.
