Nicely located across from Molly's Reach. Very patient staff. Areas to sit both inside and out. Always a large crowd.

We have been patronizing Mike's for years, have mentioned it in blog posts and always recommend it to our personal and vacation rental guests. No more. This business is being run in such a stingy and cranky manner that I have to say something. I...More

The owner or old man at the till was so rude and seemed extremely racist towards Asian tourists. He acted very snobbish and standoffish. The gelato itself was tasty but lacked the texture consistency. It is nothing compared to real ice cream. Flavors were boring...More

Hello Betty L. Sorry to hear of your disappointing experience. My father is old and ready to retire. He honestly loves customers but can be overwhelmed when tough customers stack up. It is the nature of retail to have to deal with happy customers and...More
