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

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.

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.

We always love their iced cream, and this time was no exception. There are quite a few toppings, and a big selection of homemade candies. Nice ambience, too. We will keep going back.
