OVERALL: LOVED the ice cream here! Much better than Coldstone (Coldstone is not bad, but this is clearly better!). QUANTITY: We got the Large ice cream size, and it was a good size! $6.50 per large ice cream, but you can use an Entertainment Book coupon to save roughly half the price. QUALITY: Excellent! The flavor was excellent. We got... More

I particularly liked the Hula flavor (coconut based ice cream) The ice cream style was a bit hard and did not feel rich. . But... More

I had heard that some of my friends had tried schoolhouse ice cream and figured we'd give it a shot one afternoon as a treat. I won't say their selection is huge but it is decent and varied. My wife ordered a medium cone and when I saw their idea of a medium I quickly changed my order to a... More

Took my two girls for slush, they wanted cotton candy cause it was listed on the website but they only had two flavors. That was fine. What wasn't fine was that they charged $4.20 for a children's slush!!! When I ordered, she asked a children's and I said yes, your smallest. Then when I was rung up for $8.40, I... More

You're in Burlington. You don't feel driving too far north or south. You just need a good cup of ice cream. Hop on over to Schoolhouse. Good serving sizes, some great flavors and a really cute atmosphere (the fact wall was enthralling).

I dropped by this place a few days ago and enjoyed a banana split with mint chip, mud pie, and for now the heath bar. The ice cream was very good and definitely something I would have again. I didn't try the soft serve, but I will have to try that next time. If you're really feeling hungry, they do... More

This place offers great lunch combinations with soup, sandwiches and a kiddie ice cream. It's perfect for a light lunch with a great sweet ending. I usually get the BLT and a soup with a kiddie sorbet. The owner Rob is extremely nice. They always have a great variety of homemade ice cream, ice and sorbets. Their ice cream cake... More

We love this place. The people who work there are friendly and helpful. The area is clean. The ice cream is home made and very good. My kids especially like the "unique facts" on the wall.
