Stopped on a detour off of I-81 and was pleasantly surprised by a young cheerful staff who knew their product... and the product was delightful. I got chocolate, espresso, and Guiness stout, a great trio in a waffle cup!

We love the Split Banana. Great choices and it's always excellent. You won't be disappointed if you make a stop. Downtown Staunton is great too.

Delicious gellato, made fresh with pure ingredients! Awesome flavor creations from the traditional chocolate or Reece's cup to unique ones like Pineapple basil, Guinness Stout Cream! Specials like "Waffle Wednesday" where you get the waffle cone OR bowl free keep customers happy!
