I love this place. yes you have to wait but it's so well worth it. If you don't like to wait just buy 1/2 gallon pre packs and make sundaes at home.

Mitchell's is a long-time family favorite that has stood the test of time. It ranks up there with the best so-called "artisanal" ice cream makers. Mitchell's ice cream is creamy and rich in butterfat. It's totally satisfying in ways the trendier places aren't. Mango is...More
