Our sundaes have your toppings of choice, poured lovingly over the top of our fresh custard, and then topped with whipped cream! Did you know? A sundae is an ice cream dish consisting of various toppings that may include fruit, nuts, candies, syrup, or whipped cream. Originally, the expression ice cream sundae was spelled in the same way as the name of the day, as in ice cream Sunday. There is some dispute as to the exact time and place that the term ice cream Sunday became ice cream sundae, though many ascribe the change in spelling to religious protests against using the Lord’s Day to denote a dessert. In any case, sometime in the nineteenth century, the term ice cream sundae was invented in the United States. The plural form is sundaes.
