Despite eyeballing a long line as we entered, it moved quickly and allowed everyone in my group to enjoy some ice cream! Choices featured traditional and unique flavors that did not disappoint anyone's palate in the group. Frappes could be specified to be extra thick which was a nice option. Our group found a couple of tables to be seated,... More

Daughter loved her ice cream and I really enjoyed my spicy hot chocolate. Only problem was trouble getting a table but we snagged one with our coats while we were on line so it was ok.

We were walking by when we kept seeing people coming out with ice cream cones or bowls making heavenly happy sounds so we turned around and went in. They were sold out of cookie, cookie dough but the extra chocolatey (can't remember the name) and some kind of cake ice cream were both delicious. Fully lived up to all the... More

Great selection of quality ice cream made with quality ingredients. Flavor selection changes periodically. Always busy, but worth the wait.

I'm not really sure what there is to review here. It's ice cream, okay? Yes, it's good ice cream. Yes, there's a wide selection of flavors. Yes, the staff are courteous, efficient, and perky. Yes, kids are very welcome (hot tip: if you're running an ice cream shop, don't be nasty to kids). But in the end, it's an ice... More

Came here recently for dessert and ordered the oreo ice cream. It was very delicious. The ingredients they use here are among the best available. The ice cream was, dense, heavy and rich, though not too rich. They also have cookies/brownies here as well. They are also very good and are of high quality. The young kids behind the counter...
