Freshest ice cream around. Great small town atmosphere. Always a family favorite! Try the milk shakes.

There are often lines in the summer to buy ice cream at what has become an institution in Cranbury. They offer a large selection of ice cream flavors and the ice cream is very good.

A not to be missed visit whenever I have my nails done across the street. There is often a line that moves quickly and there are seats for eating.. They only have a walk-up window so all seating is outdoors. An institution on Main Street

Employees were very friendly, welcoming and efficient. I had mint chocolate chip--hubby had soft serve cherry dipped! So refreshing on a 100+ degree day! Be sure to stop if you're in Cranbury!

This is a great place to take the kids on a hot summer day. They specialize in making really good, traditional ice-cream flavors. The scoops are generous and the price is extremely reasonable. We try to stop here every time we are in downtime Cranbury.

Friendly customer service and delicious homemade flavors? What else could you ask for in such a charming town?! Don't miss out on the cake batter! If you are gluten free this place is a MUST! There are tons of gluten free flavors! (cake batter is not one of those....)

This little down town is adorable...historic, much like mayberry. Every downtown needs an ice cream shop. They have a cute little seating area, the locals all gather and happily munch the home made flavors like cotton candy and toasted coconut, to name MY favs :-)

Thank Angelashungry
