If you prefer the classic route, Manny’s also has many of the fan favorites, from milkshakes and pancakes to crepes and churros. 

DeiColtelli Gelato & Sorbet

Williston Park’s local gelateria doesn’t serve just any old ice cream. Using only the highest ingredients, the decade-old shop has breathtaking gelato and sorbet on offer, practically exploding from the display counter with colorful flavors and toppings.

When the craving strikes, you can always order classics like cheesecake, banana splits, or sundaes, but for something with a little more visual appeal, opt for one of the shakes – flavors range from cotton candy to cin a bon to fruity pebbles.

It’s an eyeful and a mouthful all at once. The popular chain also serves giant sundaes and doughwiches if a shake isn’t your speed.
