We needed a pick me up after all day on the GOR so this was perfect. Their ice cream is really good and I can see why it’s won awards. Their chocolate is a great, pure flavor.

This is a must stop for any foodie in the area. Not cheap mind you but superdelicious savoured traditional chocolate and expresso ferrro rocher! 8 dollars for 2 scoops. I think you can also buy in bulk if you have refrigeration.
