Serendipity Homemade Ice Cream

Owner Beckie Jacobs believes in crafting ice cream using local ingredients. Too many St. Louis-area restaurants to list here call on her as a primary dessert supplier, so even if you've never been to Beckie's cute little ice cream parlor, you've probably tasted her wares. Jacobs sticks to other hard-and-fast beliefs about ice cream, too. Number one: Ice cream should indeed be hard. Number two: Ice cream should be fun, so forget all that about hard-and-fast beliefs and order up. Serendipity's slogan is "Life is uncertain...Eat dessert first." If one thing is certain, it's that Serendipity's creamy creations -- whether a sundae, shake, malt, smoothie, ice cream cake or just a simple scoop in a cone -- are some of the best around.
