To cool off after lunch, friends recommended this place for dessert. They offer a good variety of ice cream and shakes. We sampled the hand packed strawberry, toffee and chocolate ice cream. We also liked the mango, ube and macapuno flavors enough to take half...More

Good ice cream although a bit pricier that Rite Aid of course. Stays busy most of the time, but a chance to run into old friends.

Great flavors, great quality and nice nostalgic decor. Only downside is it's cash only. There's a WF bank next door, if you don't mind the service fee.
