It’s time to get your holiday shopping on! May we suggest a trip to downtown New Milford to get festive and get a lot of your holiday shopping done? It’s a park-once-and-stroll kind of town which we love! And don’t forget to take time to wine, dine, and catch a movie at the end of your perfect day.

Tasty Waves Cafe
We started and ended our day at Tasty Waves, located at the bottom of the green (across from the tank and the bandstand!). It’s a fun and bright spot to get a cup of Omar coffee and an eggcellent breakfast sandwich. OMG, they make a great bacon, egg, & cheese – a favorite meal of ours. 😆
And yes, no shame, we went back at the end of our day for an ice cream flight (all made in-house), AND a make-your-own frozen yogurt sundae with all the toppings, because we are 12! They have 12 self serve handles of soft serve ice cream, frozen yogurt, and vegan sorbets with over 60 toppings in the toppings bar!
