Facts: Back in 1975, Goldenthal’s parents, Barbara and Neil Humphreys, took over Springer’s, a Shore institution since the 1920s.

Eating out: “We don’t leave Stone Harbor very often. For special occasions and a break from work, we make the drive to Cape May for breakfast at The Mad Batter (19 Jackson St., Cape May, 609-884-5970, madbatter.com). Our ice-cream makers get breakfast nearly every morning at Jack’s Shack (261 96th St., Stone Harbor, 609-368-4565, jacksshack.com). “We have three favorites for lunch: Green Cuisine (302 96th St., Stone Harbor, 609-368-1616, greencuisinenj.com), which makes us feel less guilty about the ice-cream consumption; Yvette’s Café (221 96th St., Stone Harbor, 609-368-1855, yvettescaffe.com) for gourmet sandwiches or salads; and Bradley’s (10725 Third Ave., Stone Harbor, 609-368-2039) for cheesesteaks. “For dinner, Marabella’s (9426 Third Ave., Stone Harbor, 609-368-5037, marabellasfamilyrestaurant.com) is a staple and our next-door neighbor, so we’re there quite a bit. Once in a while, when we want to feel more like vacationers and less like business owners, we escape all the way around the corner to Kuishimbo (330 96th St., Stone Harbor, 609-967-7007) for the best Japanese food there is.” 

Traditions: “Being part of Springer’s (9420 Third Ave., Stone Harbor, 609-368-4631, springersicecream.com). I’ve been here since I was 7 years old.”
