I know you've heard how amazing their ice cream is. Yes, good flavors and quality ice cream. But the overall experience stinks. Surly service, ice cream kept very soft so they can scoop more easily, atmosphere is without charm, and it's expensive! They need a...More

Great, creamy ice cream, and a great selection of flavors to choose from. I enjoyed a salted caramel, and others enjoyed maple walnut, oreo, etc. There are nuts and other toppings that can be added, too.

My husband and I both really enjoyed the ice cream. I had the fresh mint and it was very refreshing. He had the peanut butter ice cream and loved it. It wasn't too expensive. Definitely a great place for fresh and tasty ice cream!

While not as popular as the famed Toscanini's nearby, this place is just as good. As it is always the case, chocolate flavor is the best.flavor.

Flavors are not your typical offerings which is nice. High quality and very rich. Yogurt is better than the ice cream. Staff is friendly.
