This is the best place for quality ice cream all year long. Odd and different flavors. This is a place to meet both young and old after a movie or a play or just meet.

Ice cream is ice cream and it's great, right? Well, Mallard's is even better! They change their flavors all the time and even the weird flavors are delicious. It's also a fun atmosphere.
