We were in the neighborhood, so we stopped by. I liked the lychee and Choco Mac Nut flavor. The purple ice cream was interesting to look at but tasted like plain sweet cream.

This is my favorite ice cream parlor next to baskin robins. First time I went here I tried the chocolate and ube.

As I entered the store, I noticed lots of colorful posters and a wide variety of ice cream flavors and of course the ladies in the back making shaved ice.

Rocky Road or ice cream with multiple ingredients are my preferred flavors usually. But one day after church, I decided to pop in here and buy a quart of ice cream to go with chocolate cake.

Always a favorite. Their shave ice and ice cream are very good. I had the butter pecan and my wife had the shave ice. They were both tasty.

Definitely worth stopping by at this place. It is located outside of Bellows Air Station and is the only Ice Cream place around. Always has a line up but is worth the stop!!

Great ice cream flavor selection and really nice staff. Yummy and refreshing. I had the Kahlua Coffee and my wife had the Macadamia Nut and we were both very happy campers.
