I LOVE this place. I have been here several times. It's a great place to stop after a hike at Sleeping Giant. The ice-cream flavors (almost all of them) are superb. They even have K-9 ice-cream for your dog. Doggies are not allowed inside, but...More

Delicious. Prices a little higher then other ice cream shops but worth it. Their truffles are fantastic. They make them to order so you must call a few days ahead.

All the flavors are great. Fall is the best because they have Pumpkin. You can eat inside or outside. Staff members are always very cheerful....

It doesn't matter when we go out or who with, time after time this ice cream is the best. In warmer weather you can sit outside and enjoy.

Anytime you go there, they are usually busy, but you move pretty quickly. Every bite is a taste of pleasure my son says. It's a must try if you in the area.
