A classic milkshake can be enjoyed all-year round whether you dip it in fries or enjoy it as a refreshing summer dessert. But who makes the best milkshake on Long Island?

Long Islanders voted Douglas & James Homemade Ice Cream, aka Sweat Treats on the Wharf, as winner of Best Milkshake on Long Island in the 2020 Bethpage Best of Long Island contest! And Shake Shack was the national winner in this category.

Nothing quenches your thirst and fills you up quite like a cool milkshake on a hot summer day. Located on scenic Main Street in Port Washington, Sweet Treats on the Wharf offers a wide selection of homemade ice cream, frozen yogurt, and sorbet that can be easily spun into a delicious milkshake.

This old school ice cream shop has been a local favorite for years because of their unique flavors and neighborhood charm, and their milkshake can’t be beat. The best part? After you get your shake, you can enjoy it while walking along the shoreline. 

And Shake Shack more than delivers on its promise to provide their loyal customers with out-of-this-world flavors that’ll satisfy that sweet tooth. From classic favorites like vanilla, strawberry and chocolate to seasonal concoctions like red velvet, frozen hot chocolate and cookie butter, it’s no surprise why people consistently wait in long lines or order for pickup to get a hold of one of their decadent shakes!

Douglas & James Homemade Ice Cream (Sweat Treats on the Wharf) is located at 405 Main St. in Port Washington. It can be reached at 516-708-1706.

Shake Shack has multiple locations that can be found at shakeshack.com
