We finally went here after many visits to the area. This place is busy and we understand why as it was really good. We only had a banana split this time but we will return. Prices were reasonable, there is lots of selection and it...More

Nice sandwiches and great ice cream always served with a smile. Lots of choice and a quirky dessert bench for a photo op.

Unique decor and friendly staff. Not just ice cream: breads, cookies and other baked goods. Loved the coffee ice cream soft serve!
