I am a server at Mainely Meat next door, and I often found myself wondering over to Bob's side of the building to grab myself a nice sweet treat. The ice cream is so good, you cannot beat it.

Amazing ice cream. So many varieties and choices, it was hard to decide. Hint: Do not order a large cone unless you have someone to help you finish it.
