I never realized that this was a chain, but the ice cream is always delicious. Sampled the fudge too--not too shabby!

So wrong but so good...best fudge, chocolate, everything this side of Brussels. Don't eat too much or you will get sick.....it's all so rich. Worth every penny after dinner visit for something super sweet but not too much.

I wanted ice cream. I saw this place so I had to try it out. I had just ate dinner and did not realize how much it filled me up, but it did. It was very good. Please note that there are no tables inside.

The ice cream was delicious but with only one outside bench (occupied) it was impossible to enjoy it. Also $8+ for 2 scoop is rather pricier than I can recommend
