Homemade ice cream, toppings, and fantastic service. In the mood for a milkshake, homemade ice cream spun into amazing milkshakes.

Home-made ice cream made a unique way with the ingredients hand-stirred in. A third-generation business started in 1954. Soft and scooped ice cream with over 40 flavors as well as milk shakes, sundaes, banana splits, parfaits, hot fudge cakes, hot fudge brownies and more! Ice cream but also sugar-free ice cream, frozen yogurt, and sorbet. Open spring and summer and part of fall; closed during winter months.
