Day 84/100
Sweet Moses
This is the most charming sweets shop ever. It looks like it came out of the 1950s, complete with shiny embossed copper registers on marble counters and an old fashioned soda fountain and popcorn maker. Everyone who works there wears a crisp white shirt and a little paper triangle hat (what are those really called?). Aside from their signature fountain specialties, you can order homemade ice cream, sundaes, marble, popcorn, and grilled cheese varieties! And best of all it’s named after Moses Cleaveland. The Gordon Square shop’s very cute explanation of the naming goes like this: “Maybe it’s the fact that his name was misspelled, but virtually every portrait and statue of our city’s founder, Moses Cleaveland, depicts a man with a scowl on his face. So what would it have taken him to get to smile? WE HAVE AN IDEA.”
