There is a unique blend of flavors here that are not the greatest. The prices are a bit steep and the service ranks at a level lower than bad. When I first entered I asked for the code to use the restroom and got eyeballed...More

This quirky little ice cream shop is a must if you are in Bellingham! The service was great and they manage to serve some unusual flavors-which are delicious! Just remember to bring cash. No Credit cards here.

There might not be chocolate or vanilla on the menu but it is fantastic! The atmosphere is very casual and fun. You can definitly feel the local influence! My husband had the mint orea and I had the lemon cheesecake. The texture was super creamy...More
