So many choices, too many choices. Very fresh ice cream. Cute old fashioned shop with some indoor seating. The peanut butter,chocolate and pretzel ice cream was good. As a Clevelander, gotta love a place that has a flavor named "Cleveland Brownie"

Lots of ice cream choices! My son loved the peppermint and I loved the Kahlua chip. Clean bathrooms.

Hubby, the ice cream aficionado spotted Pops on the way down the hill while we were walking down to another restaurant for lunch. Even though we weren't hungry we went in and hubs ordered his favorite, coffee ice cream. Of course here in A-town it was called Cappuccino. It was full of chocolate chips and made hubs happy! Good deal!

After dinner, we headed down the street to check out Pop's. We saw the line inside earlier and knew it must be the place to go for ice cream. We weren't disappointed. They had a huge selection of flavors and we all got something we liked.

Eaten here several times, it's always delicious. The long lines move pretty quickly, be sure to grab extra napkins, the true homemade ice cream melts fast!

Fun, friendly, and an Ice Cream experience that is simply unforgettable, just some of the reasons there are lines outside of this welcoming Ice Cream Parlor!!! Lactose intolerant yes, they have that too!!! I was a guinea pig and it really worked! That alone was cause for my review! Then you want Birthday Parties and you take over the resturant... More

For $5.00 per cone, we got ice crystals on our "homemade" ice cream. Need we say more? Save your money
