This ice cream treat was amazing. Well worth the wait in line. The location next to the pedestrian bridge was fun, too. We savored our ice cream while watching lots of folks enjoying the spot along the river.

The line here moves slow as molasses. The ice cream is great as long as you have patience. You can eat your ice cream inside or sit in the court yard.

We stopped after a walk over the bridge. We have a family of 4 and it cost us close to $28 to feed our family ICE CREAM. Everyone got the vanilla ice cream with cones and blended it with a variety of flavors. It wasn't a must return for us due to the fact that it cost too much. We... More

We were looking for an ice cream spot after dinner for my kids. I am so happy we ended up here. You start with vanilla or chocolate base, add in as many mix ins as you want (which is a huge list), they mix it all together, and place in a cone or cup! So delicious and it is right... More

It's different from any ice cream shop we've been to before. It's so yummy!!! It's in a perfect location if you are taking a stroll across the Walnut St. Bridge. Definitely worth a stop!

Great ice cream experience. Service was extremely fast for a custom mixed, custom blended ice cream. I tried the vanilla with cheesecake and toffee. It was delicious!

So Coldstone/Marble Slab gathers all of your ingredients and kind of mashes and cuts and combines everything. This company kind of does the same thing but (as far as I can tell), they really blend everything together. It was great. I loved mine. You start off with a base of vanilla or chocolate, add any toppings you want and whatever... More

You can choose between ice cream or frozen yogurt for the base and add any topping to mix in- not just a sprinkle... they mix it in a machine so it's really mixed throughout! Awesome! It's a must have!!!
