I love the ice cream! Unique, Mystic only flavors! It can be a bit expensive for a cone but it is worth every penny! You can really taste the quality! Local cream, the best vanilla and imported chocolate! The best part is it is family owned, so you know they care about the product and the customers!

The walnut chocolate fudge was outstanding. Other flavors looked great, too. Small batches, clearly home made / on premises. Great friendly service. Didn't have time to try the ice cream or other sweets -- next time!

Stopped in to grab something warm, had the regular hot chocolate with almond milk. Pretty pricey- $6 and change for 2 regular hot chocolates?? Shop was cute, pretty busy but well run. Tables to chairs to eat and a charming local shop.

Stopped in for icecream and frozen yogurt. A lot of choices. I had the froyo and my husband had the icecream. A little expensive, but it was good.

I have rarely found ice cream in the USA which comes close to that served in Italy, but this comes pretty close. A wide and interesting selection of flavours, some of the more unusual ones I found a little bizarre but there was something there for every taste. Flavour-packed with a great texture, super ice creams. The layout is a... More

Stopped in for some very tasty ice cream just over the drawbridge. There were some really interesting flavors. I agree with the other review - the black raspberry was outstanding. The coffee was good too, so had a nice dessert meal her. Nice owner too.

This small unassuming shop has the best Icecream and candy. If you want fancy chocolates or delicious fudge, look no further. Rita, the owner, does a great job.

This review is primarily for the ice cream - we did a taste comparison between this and Mystic Drawbridge, and although it was close, we both liked this one better. I had Caramel Cashew, and he had Maple Walnut -- both outstanding. The ice cream here is truly European: incredibly creamy, with just the right amount of flavor and sweetness.... More
