Mary Coyle, the landmark Phoenix ice cream parlor said to be closing at the end May, may not be melting away just yet.
Since March 3, Mary Coyle's has whittled its menu of ice cream, sandwiches, soups, and salads down to just ice cream (not a good sign), but an employee of the 60-year-old establishment told me today that Mary Coyle's does have a buyer and, barring any paperwork snags, they hope to be back in business on June 1st and serving up the full menu again.
Did I mention he was crossing his fingers when he said that? Here's hoping this Phoenix tradition turns itself around and makes a sweet comeback.
