One of the great things about where I live is that there is no shortage of ice cream parlors and seafood shacks- and they’re all amazing- but there’s only one place within a short driving distance from my apartment that I go to when I’m unsure if I want soft serve, a smoothie- or bubble tea- because they serve all of those things and more!
Little Heaven, a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it dessert and beverage bar off of Route 9 in Hadley, Massachusetts- is a must-visit spot in the Summertime- especially on days when the temperatures are soaring and the sun is shining bright. Their service is quick and always friendly and their ice cream and assortment of shakes/teas/smoothies are always served fresh and frigid- making it all super refreshing!
I stopped by this past weekend while driving through the area with my mom, who had come by my apartment for a visit and lunch before we went to do some shopping. I was craving a banana smoothie while she was in the mood for a soft serve cone- so I knew right away where to bring her.
Unsurprisingly, my mom loved the place- from the adorable seating area out front to the selection of flavors/items on the menu and finally to how good everything tasted. She’s already asked to go back when I get home from California in a couple of weeks!
Little Heaven is officially open for the Summer season as of a couple of weeks ago- so if you find yourself on Route 9 anytime soon- I highly recommend stopping by!
