This ice cream is delicious and the perfect treat on a warm afternoon! They have a variety of flavors, both traditional & non-traditional. My husband got the vanilla, but I opted to try the mushroom flavor! I know it sounds gross, but it was awesome!...More

Had unique and seasonal flavors as well as standards. It wasn't the best hand-made ice cream, but it was definitely good. Please note, ice cream is not my favorite dessert or craving. I based this review on my family's input.

This is a must go to when in Fort Bragg. Some of the best ice cream you will ever have, and it is not expensive. Went there twice the same day.
