They had so many different flavors to dip your ice cream in! Milk chocolate, dark chocolate, white chocolate and licorice! Very glad we stopped by- if you are in the area it is definitely worth it!

Walked here after visiting the botanical gardens. They had a lot of ice cream choices and toppings. The best part was they had a non-milk option that tasted great! Would highly recommend.

Amazing ice cream. Skip the sauces (they harden and aren't nearly as good as the ice cream) and just pick your one favorite topping at most. Savor it!
