The ice cream is delicious here. I really liked the honey/peanut butter flavor I had and the service was fast. The price wasn't cheap, but we would rather pay more to support a local eatery so it was worth it!

I'm going to pay Mission Hill Creamery the highest compliment I can give- their ice cream doesn't bother my stomach. I'm really sensitive to dairy and if an ice cream isn't made with quality ingredients then I pay for it later. I've been able to...More
