Olives & Grace
A couple weeks back I decided to give myself an assignment to photograph a feature on a local business. Living so close to Hudson is great because this up-and-coming town has so many fantastic small businesses, it was hard to choose one. (I don't have to - maybe this will become a series?) Now that the nice weather is slowly rolling in, I've been frequenting one of my favorite stops in Hudson, New City Microcreamery. It's such a great hangout spot, and the ice cream is some of the best I've ever had! Do yourself a favor and pay a visit if you haven't already.
New City's open ice cream kitchen is locally sourced and has made from scratch recipes, which makes for fantastic ice cream with unique flavors you won't find at your traditional ice cream shop. They also serve coffee, breakfast and other sweets!
My favorite flavor is their Mint Chip, but this time I had to try Lemon Poppyseed and it was delicious! It tasted exactly like the lemon poppyseed muffins my mom used to make at home.
There's also an awesome little outdoor patio, and if you look closely you'll see Less Than Greater Than in the background - that's the speakeasy and it's just as awesome at the ice cream shop. I'll have to do a feature there, too!
If my spotlight didn't convince you to take a trip, you can check out their Instagram:
I hope to see you in Hudson!
