“Best. Ice. Cream. Ever.”
Reviewed 9 August 2013

After a long day of cleaning and a subpar meal at Bertucci's with hideous company, my wife and I were looking for something sweet. We accidentally found this and it was amazing. The Tiger Milk ice cream was delicious in a pretzel cone and a cookie come. The portions were huge. Staff was very helpful and friendly, too. If you're in Lexington, you must visit. If you're not near Lexington, but in Boston, it's worth the trip.

“yummy!”
Reviewed 31 July 2013

Pricey but delectable. It attracts many teens, also families, 'cause who doesn't love great ice cream? Large range of flavors. Limited seating. Servers are friendly and happy to help.

Gus, the owner, is VERY involved in the production of his ice cream. This is really high quality. A wide variety of flavors.

“Best ice cream in the area”
Reviewed 22 July 2013

Great home made options, good location. I like to get a cone and cross the street to the town square. Great on a summer evening.

“The hot fudge makes all the difference!”
Reviewed 14 July 2013 via mobile

Homemade ice cream is flavorful dense and frozen hard the way it should be. The hot fudge is homemade too and that makes everything just that much better. I also had plain strawberry ice cream in a cup which was excellent.

Odd greeting: An employee was just finishing cleaning the outside of the glass in the entrance door when we arrived. She stood up and walked right inside without greeting us or holding the door for us (which is still a common courtesy).
