Opie's Soft Serve - a Catonsville Summer Tradition

Real Estate Agent with Ellicott City Clarksville Howard County Maryland Real Estate 535650

Another hidden gem in Catonsville!  Ok - maybe this one is not so hidden!  

Opie's Softserve and Snowball Stand at 1603 Edmondson Avenue in the heart of Catonsville is the place to be all summer long!  

Opies soft serve stand in CatonsvilleThe soft serve is the best around - creamy and rich in vanilla, chocolate or swirl.  A variety of sizes including kiddie for those days when you want just a taste.  Get it with or without jimmies or chocolate or peanut butter shell - yummy!!

You can't go wrong with a snowcone with 39 flavors to choose from such as classics like orange, lemon lime, cherry,and rainbow as well as the Baltimore area favorites, egg custard and skylite!  A popular item at Opie's is the Snowcream with your choice of snowcone with a serving of soft serve in the middle.  Hot humid Maryland weather has met it's match in this treat!

The charm continues with plenty of picnic tables in a grassy area as well as some seating until cover for really sunny days.  There are even a few porch swings thrown in for good measure.  It's a place you can stay a while, catch up with neighbors and watch the kids run around.  You can even take a stroll on the Trolley Trail which runs from Opie's for about 1/2 mile between Edmondson and Frederick Road by Hillcrest Elementary.

On a given day, the line can wrap around the front porch but it moves pretty quickly and is always worth the wait.  The high school and college kids who serve the treats are efficient and used to orders with multiple cones!  Get an Opie's tshirt while you are there and you'll be in good company!

A great place to bring friends and family all summer long!

Eat and play local and love it!

Ellie, that's cute, Opie's Ice cream; a few doors over maybe Andy's fruit stand and of course Barney has candy.
