These ice cream shops are all celebrating ice cream for breakfast day in Maryland. Make your plans now for a sweet start to your day!
I don’t know when I first heard that there was a holiday called Ice Cream For Breakfast Day, but I do know that I immediately started making plans to combine two of my favorite things– breakfast and ice cream!
Believe it or not, Ice Cream for Breakfast Day has been around since the 1960’s (who knew?) when a Mom of 6 from Rochester, NY wanted to entertain her kids (aka– get them to stop whining) during a cold, snowy winter. By the time her kids grew up and scattered around the globe (literally), the spread their love of this made up holiday.. and it caught on.
But come on.. it’s ice cream and breakfast. That is like one of the best ideas ever!
Now, believe it or not, there are quite a few places in Maryland who hold special Eat Ice Cream For Breakfast Day events. We have scoured the internet to find as many as we could… and here they are. So, make your plans now and happy eating!

What if you don’t want to leave your house for breakfast?
Well, that’s easy! You don’t have to visit a local ice cream shoppe to celebrate this awesome holiday. If you would prefer to stay home, either break out the waffle iron or grab some EGGO waffles. Make (or toast) your waffles and then heap a generous scoop (or two or three) of your favorite ice cream flavor on top!
Top if off with chocolate syrup and sprinkles.. and then dig in!
Either way, I hope you take some time to celebrate this super fun and super sweet holiday!
