PHOENIX – An iconic local ice cream parlor will be reopening in central Phoenix in about a month, the owner of Mary Coyle Ol’ Fashion Ice Cream said this week.

The ice cream maker is moving to Central Avenue near the Heard Museum and Phoenix Art Museum off McDowell Road.

Larry Healey told ABC15 on Monday that at 1,200 square feet, the new site was a little larger than the previous place at Seventh Street and Bethany Home Road.

He said that building had been sold for redevelopment, so he closed down.

Mary Coyle opened in 1951, serving its signature, on-the-premises-made ice cream and later added sandwiches, soups and salads.

The business’ Facebook page posted May 15 it was moving and the site was under construction, but didn’t say where.

That announcement opened a floodgate of memories on the social media site.

“Been enjoying Mary Coyle ice cream since 1959 and not stopping now!!!” wrote one commenter.

“Used to stop at the 15th and Thomas shop when I walked home from West High!!” wrote another.

“I have followed you to about 5 locations so far (starting with 19th Ave.) – you keep moving but I keep finding you!” wrote a third.

We want to hear from you.
