This is a long time local ice cream shop and draws the locals as well as out of towners. Fits the town with an old fashioned look with great ice cream. Staff is friendly. My husband stops there on a regularly basis for an afternoon treat!

Can you think of a better idea than mixing wine and ice cream. It may not be everyone's choice, but it is a terrific idea and for those whose taste is in this direction, it is not only unique, but it satisfies two cravings at once.

This hometown ice cream maker was owned by one family for two generations. The new owner faithfully follows the historic recipes while adding new flavors. You'll find a new favorite here. Creamy, delicious, family friendly, friendly staff and gives back to our community. Take a prepacked quart to your next family event, they'll always invite you back.

Not sure what else to say other than the ice cream is luscious but I did think the price for a single serving cone was a bit steep.

Sorry the price wasn't what you were expecting, but we do think it's fair considering the great quality ingredients we use and all the time it takes to craft each flavor.

I'm not even a sweets person. It's fantastic. Say "hello" to Kate, an owner. I'm impatiently awaiting the pumpkin ice cream in the fall.

Good thing the parking is tough or we would go there more often. Ice cream sundae are no brainer choice - delicious. Frozen bananas are great too.
