Polar Freeze Ice Cream is open in the village!

9 Apr

The Village of Webster just got a lot sweeter.

Just in time for this weekend’s gorgeous spring weather, Polar Freeze Ice Cream has opened in the Village of Webster.

The shop, located at 16 West Main Street, doesn’t look like much yet. When you walk in, you won’t even see any tables or chairs yet (they’ll come in a few months), only a service counter and a very large menu board advertising their 20-or-so ice cream flavors, almost two dozen topping options, plus shakes, floats, sundaes and more.

Polar Freeze is actually the second location for Bianca Cruz-Lopez and her husband Josue, who up until last summer owned and operated M. Sweet Retreat in East Rochester. They had to close that shop, but they never lost the desire to serve up small town sweet treats.

I stopped in on Wednesday, their opening day, and asked Bianca why they decided to come to Webster. She said it “just felt like the perfect ice cream spot.”

Two-year old Jojo and her sister Annalilese were happy customers on Polar Freeze’s opening day.

I would have to agree. Hank’s took their awesome ice cream with them when they closed several years ago. Webster Hots has tried to fill the void, but as far as I’m concerned, the more ice cream options in the village, the merrier. And in my 20-plus years in Webster, I can’t remember ever having a dedicated ice cream shop right in the village.

I’d say we’re pretty lucky that Bianca and her husband decided to bring their passion for ice cream to our village.

Right now, Polar Freeze is open from noon to 9 p.m. every day, and this summer will be open noon to 10 p.m. On Monday April 12 they’ll be hosting their grand opening celebration. That would be a great day to stop by, say hi, and welcome them to our friendly village. You can park on Main Street or find ample spaces in the parking lot behind Village Hall.

Polar Freeze is coming to the village

18 Mar
This will be the new home for Polar Freeze, 16 West Main.

There aren’t a whole lot of details yet, but I’m pleased to help spread the news that Polar Freeze Ice Cream is coming to the Village of Webster!

I, for one, am very excited by this news. We need more ice cream in the village. Hank’s took their awesome ice cream with them when they closed several years ago. Webster Hots has tried to fill the void, but as far as I’m concerned, the more ice cream options in the village, the merrier.

Polar Freeze will be moving into the vacant storefront at 16 West Main St., across the street from The Coach.

It’s actually the second location for Bianca Cruz-Lopez and her husband Josue, who up until last summer owned and operated M. Sweet Retreat in East Rochester. They had to close that location, but by the looks of their Facebook pages, they never lost the desire to serve up small town sweet treats. We’re just lucky they decided to settle their new shop in Webster and not East Rochester.

Bianca and Josue are very excited to come to Webster. They’re planning to keep the same menu they had in East Rochester (apparently everyone loved it) and add some new items … like canoli ice cream (!) and sundaes.

Right now the new place doesn’t look like much, as Bianca and Josue work hard to refurbish and remodel (with the help of their children, offering building and business advice — check out the adorable Facebook video). Their goal is to open up mid-April, but we should know more in a few weeks.

So in the meantime, visit and “like” the Polar Freeze Facebook page to keep up on the latest developments. And just think about it — by summer we should be able to get dinner at the new restaurant, The Cobblestone on Main, then head across the street to Polar Freeze for dessert!
