While my wife was shopping I stopped pass for ice cream. They have a wide variety of ice cream. They're very friendly. The place is clean with chairs to sit on. They don't take credit cards but it is worth it. ENJOY!!

Stopped after dinner for dessert. Quite a large selection of delicious cones and even more delicious variety of regular and soft ice cream.

My kids all got two scoop cones which was way too much, so we had to all pitch in to help finish it. It was very good and there was quite a large selection of flavors and cones.

Rocky road was amazing. And friendly staff. There was a huge line, but it moved quickly and was well worth the wait.

Stopped here last night after dinner for ice cream on waffle cones. They have a wonderful selection; I had the toasted coconut and my husband had heathbar. It was delicious, fresh and creamy. We sat on benches out front and chatted with other connoisseurs. I already know we'll return this week to sample more flavors. This place is quaint and... More
