Clean, well kept ice cream location, with superb staff, and a wonderful curb appeal. They do parties for kids. Wish mine were still young. Stopped for an ice cream before hitting the highway and what a delight.

Best ice cream around, very clean and employees were very polite on our visit over the weekend. I would highly recommend the cookies by the register. Perfect stop for an after dinner treat.
