Best ice cream! Always miss it when I leave. Would recommend grabbing a whole pint of it. My fave is the mint or honey!

Stopped here to grab an ice cream. The way prices are listed was very misleading. After paying a whopping 8.40 for 2 small size scoops in a waffle cone our group vouched never to go here again.

We are sorry to hear that you found are prices misleading. Our prices are clearly posted. 1 scoop is $4. The second scoop is $2.50. Our waffle cones are $1.50. The portion sizes are clearly visible.
