Can try any flavor. Good selection, somewhat overwhelming. Too many flavors, and each one has too many things in it. Still tasty.

Although I am not a big ice cream fan, I do love Ben & Jerry's ice cream. They have so many flavors so I always try something new and have never been disappointed. This time, I tried the Vanilla Toffee Crunch and I think it is my new favorite! This location is super busy and always has a line out... More

Lots of excellent flavors, but we went for our favorites as usual. Coffee, Butter Pecsn and Vanilla. Loved the choice of cones - waffle style crusted with chocolate or sprinkles in the shape of either a cup or a cone. The waits staff was friendly and patient while we deliberated and then ended up ordering the same old, same old.

We love Ben & Jerry's. After a dinner, we stopped for some dessert. We had a brookie (cookie-brownie combo) with two scoops of ice cream. One was Chocolate Therapy (my favorite) and the other was the chocolate peanut butter flavor. It was delicious. Service was fast. No complaints.

For all the euphoric flavors you can't get enough of - especially the ones you can't get in ordinary stores - nobody scoops Ben & Jerry's better than we do at our scoop shops.
