Follow them on Facebook because they have a new location which is just two miles or so away from our house. It is located on site of an old dairy that is no longer operational, but you can get a true sense of the history of the area by looking at the decor of the store. The address is 99 Pecora Road in Drums, which will get you close but not to the correct door. Look for the big dairy barn on your left and the ice cream store is directly across the street from it. This ice cream is so delicious and it is locally made. The location that I listed above is open year-round from 11 AM until 8 PM and It is located in an old dairy that used to be a part of this area for decades. There’s definitely some history there worth checking out! They also have soup and some sandwiches for light lunches.

Fact of the Day: Senape’s Tavern is a culinary landmark in Hazleton. Located on North Vine Street, Senape’s was built at its present site in 1908. Saverio Senape emigrated from Italy and began working in the mines in Lattimer. After Saverio was injured and could no longer work, he decided to open a restaurant. In 1925, Saverio opened the Italian-American Bakery. He only baked bread at first, but Saverio soon began making pizza. Vito Vincinguerra became the main baker. At the time, the restaurant did not have a kitchen or back dining room. The food was prepared upstairs in the family kitchen and brought downstairs, and pizza was sent from the bakery. The bakery was renamed Senape’s Bakery in 1927. In 1935, after Prohibition, Charlie Senape took over the restaurant and tap room, while his brothers ran the bakery. Charlie originated the famous tavern pizza. At the time, he sold only two or three pans of pizza a day. The pizza quickly became regionally renowned and people now travel from great distances for a slice. So how did pizza become known as “pitza” in Hazleton? The origin goes back to Charlie, who told a young boy who worked for him to make a sign to advertise the pizza. When the boy made the sign, he incorrectly spelled the word “pitza,” and “pitza” became the trademark of the restaurant and bakery. The back dining room was added to the tavern in 1937, and Charlie began making the tavern pizza in the restaurant’s basement. Senape’s Tavern continues to serve pizza and other Italian food. The restaurant/bar is operated by Gerry Senape. The building was recently restored.
