Washtenaw Dairy is one of those gems that you find in almost every town -- if you look hard enough. Somewhat hidden in the middle of a large residential neighborhood, it is not uncommon on a summer afternoon or evening to find the line stretching well around the corner.
Washtenaw Dairy is as much a community gathering place as an ice cream shop; they offer a good variety of flavors at fair prices, but unfortunately the ice cream is no longer as good as it once was. There was a time when Washtenaw Dairy actually made their own ice cream, but today it is Stroh's (made in Detroit by the same company which makes Stroh's beer!), which can be bought in many area grocery stores.
