Roses and Ice Cream




This past weekend I noticed the ice cream cone sign at Barkley's Stem Shop in Midtown.

According to Alice Barkley, who owns the flower shop with her husband Nat, Barkley's has been offering $1 cones of vanilla soft serve for a few months now.

And, just recently, they added hand-dipped options as well in vanilla, chocolate, black walnut, and strawberry. The hand-dipped cones are also $1.

According to Alice, the majority of Barkley's business is walk-in. The ice cream is an added incentive to get bodies through the door.

"You got to do what you got to do," she says.

Barkley's is open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to noon.
