The Ice cream were rich in flavors and tasted so decadent. It met our expectations. My fave was the raspberry chocolate chunk. The staff were nice too.

Fabulous and Interesting flavors, my long time favorite is Black Forest, but all I've tried are yummy. Most recently, had the ginger, which was refreshing and creamy. The atmosphere is comfortable, fun. My one year old grandson experienced his first ice cream here! He'll be spoiled for sure!

Cute ice cream shop with a great variety! They even had a mushroom ice cream but I was not brave enough to try it! The pralines and cream was awesome though.

quite possibly the most delicious ice-cream I (or my kids) have ever tasted. I'm a chocolate fiend, and "black forest" was incredibly good. my kids loved "cookie dough", "cake batter", and "s'mores". the single scoop size ($3.50) is quite large, and they will combine two flavors in one scoop.

We come here every time we visit Fort Bragg. Love the ice cream. The service is very friendly but even with very quick employees the line can be long on weekends.

Really enjoyed the hot spot of the town. Ginger ice cream and Black Forest were incredible! Everyone was very happy. Be prepared for a long line later in the evening.

Their blackberry chocolate chip was very good and their ginger as well. They had plenty of seating to watch the world go by and enjoy your ice cream.
