The first time I went to Cold Stone at 42nd St., I waited in line for 20 minutes. Yes, it was THAT long--it went out the door. After I received my ice-cream, there was no place to sit, or even walk around for that matter. Although the ice-cream was good (I usually get the cheesecake ice-cream with strawberries), it is a little expensive. The ice-cream itself is like 6 dollars and there's an additional $2 charge if you want a special cone. There are many other places have better ice-cream than Cold Stone Creamery, but not many others have their staff sing while they are mashing fruits and nuts into your order. Note: they don't sing unless they get a tip.
