This is a must stop for all ice cream lovers... you'll be hard pressed to find a better ice cream ANYWHERE. The texture, flavor, consistency... the best. Just go. When they have grape nut raisin, I always get it. Today it was on the board,...More

Highly recommend you stop in for a scoop of your favorite ice cream. They even give you samples if you would like to taste!

Definitely worth a visit. I would recommend the salted caramel and B-cube flavours. Usually expect long queues, but they are really quick and efficient, so you won't have to wait long.

OK, everyone has their favorite, and mine may be colored by nostalgia (thanks for all the late night snacks while studying at MIT), but seriously I think there is no finer ice cream on the planet. It says something important that these folks have been...More
