This family-run ice cream shop is a treat! Just a few flavors, but then you add various toppings. We have never been disappointed. The home-made truffles and other sweets are also excellent.

Why we are going out for ice cream in December is beyond me. However my wife and daughter love the ice cream here especially topped with their extra dark hot fudge.

Wonderful atmosphere, delicious ice cream, and you can never go wrong with their Swiss waffle. It's been 5 years since I've been able to come back and it's still as great as I remembered.

Really good ice cream and a comfortable, clean, and bright dining area. Order and pay at the counter and they bring your items to the table. Outdoor seating and service too.

There are monthly or weekly flavors so that's always nice. The combos are cool and ample toppings. A little more pricey than the usual chain spots but that's alright. Once and a while won't hurt too bad. Certainly a casual environment and cabin-ish feel to...More
