The best thing I ate this week comes from Mr. C's Custom Cone in White Lake - a custom parfait.
Mr. C's has a large variety of flurries, parfaits and ice cream. All of it is delicious. I've been going to Mr. C's since I was five, and the quality hasn't changed.
This week I had the Megan Parfait, it's a combination of cookie dough ice cream, Oreo cookies, hot fudge and whipped topping. It's amazing.
Owner Tom Dunleavy, the former Highland Township Supervisor, has lived in Michigan for most of his life.
He says he believes the shop sells some of the highest-quality ice cream on the market. Some of the house favorites include yogurt, old-fashioned Italian sodas and Sanders hot fudge cream puffs. Dunleavy’s personal favorite ice creams are raspberry chip cheesecake and butter pecan.
Dunleavy has built strong relationships with most of his past and present employees. He happily shows off pictures in his office of the girls and boys who have worked there, many of whom he has kept in contact with through the years.
“He’s a good boss, laid-back and really generous,” said employee Megan Scarlett, 19.
