Zita’s Homemade Ice Cream

  3. Zita’s Homemade Ice Cream
1790 Springfield Avenue, New Providence, NJ, USA

Established in the summer of 2000, the Elefante family named the store after their grandmother, Zita Elefante. For an uncommon name in the United States, they feel that their grandmother would be proud to know that Zita’s has become a household name in the area and serves up some of the best ice cream in the state.

Pete Elefante, the sole proprietor of Zita’s, has grown the store to what it is today—a local favorite featuring award-winning flavors, such as S’mores, which won the 2010 NJ Ice Cream Festival’s top honors for specialty flavor and third place for it’s Vanilla. Pete develops new flavors based on customer feedback and his own personal inspiration. Whatever the method, the result is that there’s a flavor on the menu for every taste.

Zita’s offers soft serve ice cream and yogurt as well as a wide variety of homemade hard ice cream and Italian ice flavors. Traditional favorites like banana splits and brownie sundaes are always a winner, but also try our shakes, blends, and slushes made your way.
