Let us explore further.

Cold Stone Creamery, 2023

According to a report from FFXNow.com, entitled “SCOOP: Vienna Cold Stone Creamery Getting Replaced by a Mediterranean Restaurant,” the location had proven wildly popular with Yelp reviewers.

As excerpted from the report: This summer will be Cold Stone Creamery’s last at Vienna Marketplace. The ice cream shop will vacate 205 Maple Avenue by Aug. 31 to make way for fast-casual restaurant Taïm Mediterranean Kitchen, according to a leasing agent for KLNB, which owns the shopping center.

The report goes on to state: Joined by Chipotle and Noodles and Company, Cold Stone has been a mainstay of Vienna Marketplace since at least 2006, according to Yelp reviews. The 1,315-square-foot space is sandwiched in between the heavily frequented but still relatively new South Block and Crumbl Cookies.
