The pistachio ice cream is made on site. They roast pistachios, cream them into a paste then make the ice cream. It is AMAZING! Also tried salted caramel, sooo creamy with golden real caramel; choco hazelnut had a taste like hazelnut nougat. They also have...More

Every ice cream flavor I’ve tried is delicious. My favorite though, is a Dutch chocolate/ coffee ice cream shake. I think it’s 5 scoops total (3/2). The best bargain, and a great shake!!

One of the best chocolate peanut butter ice creams I have had and I've tried many! They had some unique favors too like Kentucky Bourbon that my husband tried. You can definitely tell that this is homemade. 2 thumbs up for sure!

This old fashioned, family owned coffee and ice cream shop is located in Captain Curt's Village a few hundred yards south of the Stickney point (south bridge). It is beside the bike and kayak rental shop. They are super friendly and have a gourmet coffee bar, 24 flavors of hand churned, homemade ice cream. It is my favorite local coffee shop! I've never left disappointed.
