Rich woods and delicious sweets. This is a beautiful place. There is a great little gift shop, ice cream counter, and upstairs there are artifacts from the history of the company. Awesome place to visit.

We went to this ice cream parlor and found many different ice cream choices. The price is great for a huge bowl of ice cream. It is a cute place to sit down and enjoy a sweet treat.

We took a quick break from driving to grab some ice cream, and stayed for the history. It's nice to stop and learn more about how the ice cream is made.
