“A delicious return trip”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

I was here the other day and it was delicious. I had a scoop of daquiri and a scoop of peach in a waffle cone. Where the two flavours met tasted very much like a peach bellini or peach daquiri.

They also had a mystery flavour, which you could guess what it is or is made with.

My friend had one of the cayanne flavours and he loved it.

“Ice Cream & Gelato”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

You can't go wrong with ice cream. It can get very crowded in a little store. Sometimes it's difficult to see the flavours (they have lots) because everybody is trying to look at what's available. It's also a little pricey. The ice cream is made on the premises using local ingredients. It's a "mom and pop" so if you're looking for ice cream or Gelato go here.

“Tasty and friendly”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

It was very busy when we went in, but the sales guy happily made me a soy-milk soft-scoop vegan "ice cream". My partner loved his coffee ice cream. Bonus - you can try flavours before making your selection.

“Great ice cream”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

lots of flavours and choices of cones. You get to sample different flavours before you commit to one which is very useful. However, the downside is that the ice cream is pricey.
