The place looks pretty nice inside and has a good selection of home-made-styled options. There are vegan ice creams, as well as sorbets made with healthier options such as coconut oils.... The price is a little high, but the quality is very good. The usual...More

Went on a Friday night and waited about 15 min. Had the New Yorker, espresso ice cream sundae. Big enough for two. Ice cream was creamy and smooth. Honeycomb was another cool flavor. Well worth the visit for fresh and natural ice cream.

1 scoop in a cup is enough to share between two people, making their starting price reasonable. The flavors are insane(ly) delicious. They've got classic AND vegan options (two separate things, for those who still rock dairy). Quick and easy service, delicious and fully recyclable...More
