My kids (0-6) had a great time. I've read some reviews about it being super busy but we went mid February and it was very quiet so I guess winter is the best time to go. Staff were helpful. Samples were delicious.

I believe the Frey family still owns it from the pictures and history I saw on my recent visit. This place was opened in 2010.
