A beach-themed café—in landlocked Roslindale Village



ou may not expect to find a beach-themed mom-and-pop ice-cream shop in the city, but Jimmie’s Ice Cream & Sandwiches will have you hearing the crash of the waves with its New England lobster roll—served on a hot-dog bun with lobster tail, claw, and knuckle—and the Sherbet Freeze, a creamy milkshake blend of vanilla ice cream and orange sherbet. Take a seat in one of the authentic 1950s diner chairs and try old-fashioned hot dogs, sundaes, and root beer floats. Templeton
