Not loving this ice cream. Although it has interesting and unusual flavors it lacks the real creamy taste of really good ice cream. It is also quite expensive for not being particularly special.

A unique, locally owned ice cream shop that serves up small batches of home made ice cream with unique flavor combinations. Probably one of the better home made ice cream spots we have visited. Worth visiting, even when it's too cold for ice cream!

I hadn't been in a couple of years, the last time I went the ice cream was nothing special at all - but the mint chip was excellent and the black mascara was quite tasty. Very good ice cream. Not many choices. Think artisan-ish

Cute little ice cream shop on Main Street in Bristol VT. Very creamy, unusal flavors of ice cream, i.e. Basil, Thyme, etc. Look for the big, double dip ice cream cone sculpture outside!

Lu Lu's ice cream is not your standard vanilla fare. Flavors like curry and bourbon are as likely to grace the ever changing menu as vanilla and chocolate. If you are lucky - the chocolate sorbet should not be missed!

Extremely unique delicious flavors, below average value and convenience. By below average convience I mean that they have a $10 credit card minimum and weren't able to give me change for what I had.More

Robert, I am so sorry that you had a bad experience with our credit card system. The credit card fees that we pay for each transaction is so high we have to balance it with that minimum. I'm sorry it caused confusion and inconvienced you....More
