We're all missing the days of being able to enjoy our summertime favorites while dining al fresco with beautiful Bucks County views, at festivals, on date nights, or celebrating with friends and family. But for now, here are some of the many Bucks County establishments offering takeout or curbside pickup so that you can get the flavors of summer to go.
Please note that this information is accurate as of the date of publication. We will be updating frequently as restrictions are eased, but please check with individual businesses for any changes.
What’s summer without your favorite frozen treats? When the temperatures are rising, there’s nothing better than a scoop of your favorite Italian Ice, Frozen Yogurt or Ice Cream. It’s the perfect way to take a minute to indulge, slow down, and beat the heat!

Today I’m taking the #extraordinarysmallbusinesschallenge. For my kids, the ultimate treat is @owowcow. Owned by graphic designer turned ice cream aficionado, John Fezzuoglio, I have often marveled at the attention to detail thats comes from Owowcow. John has been known to go to the creamery himself to pick up his cream and the beekeeper to procure the honey. He only uses the best ingredients. When they first over a decade ago, my husband and I would trek an hour to their single location, a converted gas station in Upper Bucks County. But when you have a product that creates a cult following, location becomes less of a variable. As Owowcow developed their rabid following, they slowly grew to 5 locations. I often joke that our home freezer (swipe 👉) is their 6th location, because at any given time there’s between 6 and 12 pints on hand. My 6 year old loves to find out their limited-edition monthly flavors, but the staples inner house are Cinnamon Bourbon, Strawberry, Cookies and Cream, and “I Hate Chocolate.” During this pandemic, their curbside game has been strong, and often I find myself trying to call their busy phone line reminiscent of a sold out concert in 1994. .
