WW's neighborhood bakery makes delicious little cookies, but less known is the ice cream it makes in-house. We sent intern Nora Eileen Jones down for Day 24 of Scoops' out for Summer.

Two Tarts bakery is the epitome of adorable. Located right next to
Child’s Play, a family-owned toy store, it contributes to an overall
atmosphere of childlike giddiness. A modest storefront window yawns
open, letting in the cool outside air and letting out all sorts of
delicious baking smells. To the right of the front counter a dizzying
display of colorful treats smiles welcomingly (“no…no…I’m here for the
ice cream,” I remind myself), sporting macarons and gems and
countless other goodies.
Two Tarts makes its ice cream in-house, and
offers three flavors, which it keeps in tiny rectangular
Tupperware containers in a little semi-hidden freezer. I looked up at
the chalkboard and immediately ordered the day’s special flavor, which was lemon curd. It was rich, thick, and a little bit grainy; ribbons of
bright yellow lemon custard wound through the buttery yellow scoop,
giving it a nice variance of texture. Perfect for the weather during
my visit, which was cool and overcast—it's rich and filling, but the
lemon is so mouthwatering it’s almost savory.
