Do you like ice cream? Of course, you do! Silly question, I know. Do you love ice cream! Double of course! Do you want the best ice cream ever made ever in the history of ice cream?

One of two fine abutting ice cream shops, Kilwin's is distinguished by its home-made fudge and selection of specialty chocolates.

Even though it was February, I had to stop in for ice-cream! Delicious artisan flavors, plenty of choices, and excellent service. Of course, I had to pick up some chocolate before we left! It is just such a cute shop that never disappoints.

Stopped in here because husband has to get his ice cream fix. It is a pleasant shop to go to and since I'm a chocolate freak, I had choices to make on which chocolate I wanted. It was delicious! I'll stop again next time I'm up here.

The chocolate is great, the flavors are inventive, and the staff friendly. What's not to like? Frankly, not much to not like. Their real problem is that the competition just down the street is just a tad better. Prices are great, anything with chocolate here seems good, the whole experience was a positive one. It's just not quite..... great.

We stopped in to this ice cream/candy shoppe after dinner last night...they had a great selection of flavors served in waffle cones, along with chocolates and fudge. It was a busy night and there was a line, but they had several people to help and it went quickly. We were served within five minutes and all four of us loved... More
