Ozzie's Eatery in New Buffalo, Michigan

Last weekend we made our way up to Three Oaks, Michigan for the annual Flag Day Parade. We have gone to it for several years and usually follow it up with ice cream. We were sad to see that the place we normally visit, Olivia's Sugar and Spice, was closed - and not just for the day. It looks like it is closed permanently. It had only been there a couple years ago and was preceded by another ice cream shop.

So, following the parade we thought about heading to the Buchanan Sweet Shop, but we have been there twice in the past month. We remembered an ice cream shop in Galien, but didn't know if it would be open on Sunday. So, we decided to head into New Buffalo. We knew that parking at the beach would be free after 8, so we thought we would head that way for ice cream and then hang out on the beach.

As we we were driving, we noticed that Redamak's was packed, but a place across the street called Ozzie's Eatery was much less busy. We pulled in after we noticed "frozen yogurt" on the sign.

As we walked in, the workers already had samples in hand of their flavor of the day, black cherry. The place is adorable, with a classic car/highway motif. The walls are covered with old license plates and nostalgic signs. The tables or adorned with road map and vintage images. I fell in love with the place right away. It also appears that they have classic car shows there. I'll have to check into that.

Anyway, here's a peek at what we got. The menu also includes shakes, sundaes, concretes, burgers and fries.

The place is super cute and makes you feel like you're on Route 66. :)

And this is outside, where there are picnic tables. Fun spot for the kids to eat their goodies and a good photo op - unless you have kids who hate to smile for the camera. :)
