Homemade ice cream and other treats that are worth a ride to come here. We mainly go for ice cream and it never disappoints. They don't have a million flavors but it's always excellent. Building is modeled after an alpine chalet and staff is always friendly.

My family loves Zwahlens Ice Cream. We get the Egg Nog ice cream for every Christmas. This year we had vanilla because Zwahlens saved the Egg Nog for New Years Eve. Please please bring back the Egg Nog for Christmas 🎄🎄🎄 We love all your flavors all year long but at the holidays it's always a special treat. You'll love... More

Best ice cream & chocolates in the area! Only chocolate & vanilla ice cream & one flavor of the day, but the taste is so good, that's all you need.

I went here for a birthday party for my son's friend. I didn't really order ice cream because it was for the children, and I wasn't in the mood for ice cream. I know when aren't you in the mood for ice ream. Well I am not a big ice cream person, however.... One day I decided to patron this... More

We love everything about this place!! It has the best ice cream and carmel apples on Earth! The handmade chocolates are divine. The store looks like a swiss chalet. The owners are often working there and the place runs like a top! We often buy take out ice cream for dessert to serve at our family holiday dinners and gatherings.... More

Th best ice cream; service takes some time but that's because milkshakes are made the old fashioned way and everything is fresh. A bit pricey, but what good ice cream isn't.

The custard they serve here is incredible. Creamy and delicious. They seem to offer chocolate and vanilla daily with mix ins and then switch out a flavor of the day every few days. If I lived near this place it would be dangerous, would want to eat here daily. Incredibly reasonable price for the custard. We also tried out the... More

I went there tonight because I heard good things about the place. Both employees were helping one customer (one was in training). Then they took the customer over to another register to ring her up, and left me standing there. In the meantime, a few people had formed a line, so there was no interest in helping me. I left....

Terrific homemade ice cream! It is made fresh throughout the day. We ordered sundaes with the homemade fudge sauce. They sell chocolates and other candies here too.
