Historic Elkhart ice cream stand opens for season

April 25, 2014

Another historic ice cream stand has opened its season. Eddy & Rosy's Ice Cream Shop, 917 W. Beardsley Ave., opened April 12, according to co-owner Rosy Lopez.

They bought the shop and opened it in August 2013. It was known as Curly Cone for many years and closed for several before they remodeled and took over.

Soft-serve ice cream, which can be flavored in dozens of ways, is at the heart of the menu. Tacos, quesadillas and pork tenderloins are also on the menu, as well as other sandwiches.

Hours are 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday to Saturday, noon to 9 p.m. Sunday.

So far, the stand hasn't been very busy, she said. But they're hoping for a busy summer.
