Not only excellent ice cream that is smooth and creamy but terrific mix in items to customize your order depending on you moment of need or inspiration. Not just good for hot weather, this place is great for an anytime dessert or reward. Nicely laid out and spotless eating area. Staff is helpful and accomodating. Enjoy!
