It's that good. The ice cream is incredibly creamy, but isn't quite a custard. Lots of varieties are offered here -- you can create a sundae, choose a sundae that's already on the menu, get a milkshake, or get a classic cone. Worth trying: the s'mores sundae and the raspberry-swirled soft serve. Not only is this the best ice cream... More

Loved this eclectic little ice cream parlor. The people working were very friendly gave samples to try. Lots of cool sundaes and ice cream combination. Well worth a stop. Ice cream cones were really large. Only downside they only take cash so be sure you have some on you

I just got a chocolate vanilla twist cone after lunch, but I watched the proprietress make a German chocolate sundae from scratch with homemade brownies from a tupperware container. You can't[ find that everywhere!

I walked in the door and it smelled amazing. The guy working was so hospitable and inviting. He had a big smile on his face. I love the ice cream, service and the prices are great. If I could give 6 stars, I would. This place is Heaven on Earth! ❤️
