I really do like the back patio where you can see the grounds, very relaxing. Of course the food is good too, whatever you like.

Nostalgic Ice Cream stand. I assume the ice cream is not made on location. Shain's and Shaker Pond are better choices for Ice Cream quality. Shaws Ridge has the more interesting location. Take a stroll in the garden.

I almost found it. Great flavor, but short on raisins. I have had other flavored here. Consistently good flavored and generous portions. A single scoop is much more and manageable. A double is "good trouble". Well worth the visit. Tell them to dig deep for...More
