In my opinion, best soft serve. Consistency is the key to success and Magnificos is a model of consistency. Great birthday cakes and much better than mass produced Carvel or Baskin Robin's. Better value and always fresh.

Family owned and operated soft ice cream operation right on route 18 and milltown road. Clean, well staffed and courteous. Great price and good quantity. Well worth stopping by this seasonal landmark

Magnifico's sells great ice cream products, but they can be a bit pricey for a large group. Great summer cool down!

They only serve soft serve ice cream here. You must pay with cash only. They have many different menu items to choose from including fat free, sugar free. There is usually a crowd.

Do not order a cone here because it melts before you have a chance to finish it. It ends up all over your hands and then you need a lot of napkins for cleanup. You might be better if with a cup.
