4 of us stopped in for an ice cream cone. We all enjoyed it. I had basic single scoop chocolate on a waffle cone that was very good. The portions we fine for a snack. Everyone in our group liked what they ordered.

This place was a big hit with my family! The ice cream was lovely and creamy. We also took some chocolates home. Try the "Tongas!" They are so delicious. I can't wait for a chance to go back and treat myself again!

Fantastic ice cream treats, hand dipped candies, and homemade fudge. My husband gets the Highlands Hash most of the time and we share.

Stop by for Handmade Pralines-you will think you are in New Orleans. Candy made on site, so many choices. Family owned, part of a small town. Donate to the school and other important projects.

We have a cottage on Lake Rabun and often drive up to Highlands for a walk and lunch at the Mountain Fresh Grocery... and always a cone of ice cream at Kilwin's! It's convenient, easy to find, very clean, friendly... and good!
