The only thing better than their frozen treats are the toppings - just wish there were a few more, but overall a good selection if one wants to splurge on extras! Plenty of outdoor seating, and cozy area right outside their door to relax with friends and enjoy the day! Friendly staff, interesting selections, inexpensively priced!

Great coffee and nice yard for the family to hang out while mom and dad enjoy the outdoor deck. Free wifi is available and the frozen custard is excellent!

Staff is more than willing to customize for the customer. We've been there many times and the only thing that keeps me from going there daily is the calories. I'm not supposed to... More

This Custard and Coffee Cafe is situated in an large old house, easy to drive right by. The inside is modern and upbeat. The custard is inexpensive and delicious. Great stop for dessert after a bar-b-que main course! Try it. My son even asked for seconds!!!
