Door County Cherry Sundae at the Dairy Godmother. Yes, the pecan pie is dreamy, and the Tollhouse cookie rocks. But at this Wisconsin-inspired frozen-custard shop (formerly known as the Del Ray Dreamery), these specialty flavors come around once in a blue moon. The Door County Cherry Sundae ($3.75 to $4.50)–named for the Midwestern provenance of the sour cherries–is a bowl of vanilla custard cloaked in ultra-sweet marshmallow sauce, then balanced with a mess of tart, soupy cherries. Thank goodness owner Liz Davis keeps it around all the time.
