It's basic: good, old-fashioned ice cream, custards and frozen yogurts are served at Stoddard's, with good,…More old-fashioned friendly service.
There are floats, shakes, even a kid's sundae (with candy eyes and a cherry for the mouth) and special desserts (brownie with ice cream, for example) but the main reason people flock to Stoddard's in warm weather is for its multiple, ever-changing flavor selections, including Superman, Cake Batter and White House. From tried-and-true favorites to innovative new combinations, Stoddard's is a cool Kent tradition.
If you remember root beer floats, know Coney dogs are supposed to snap when you bite into them, and once thought…More parking to eat in your car was something sort of cool to do, you've probably loved A&W for years. Of course, the retro restaurant has been winning new fans for years, too.
Kent's A&W restaurant isn't one of the chain's originals (A&W was founded in 1919) but it is something of an icon in town.
The drive-in restaurant serves the much-loved menu items from early spring until the last week of October each year - so if you want a frosty mug of root beer served through your car window, make plans to visit during warm weather.
