Great place for families wanting ice cream, candy, candied apples and much more. Clean, good service and located in a courtyard setting surrounded by other clothing stores, restaurants and a sauce specialty shop called Colonel Mustard's that is a must stop.

Not only really good ice cream, lot of very nice chocolates and other treats. A great stop after lunch or dinner. Get something and go outside and enjoy the mountains. Ice cream is a bit pricey, but well worth it. The staff is very friendly...More

We were in the park waiting for the great Eclipse of 2017. But we decided we had enough time to get some ice cream so we walked over - We had 4 different flavors and shared - everyone enjoyed!
