This ice cream was delicious - creamy and not too sweet. Was also surprisingly inexpensive for a cone -- especially given its prime location in a beach town! Definitely recommend.

Enjoyed the ice cream after a day at the beach since it was so creamy. Disappointed there weren't more unique flavors to chose from.

Stopped there again, and never had a bad visit. Ice cream is very good always, and it is nice to sit outside and watch the people walk around downtown Lewes.

we walked by about 10 minutes after it closed and the young man inside came over and opened the door and served us with a smile.

Delicious ice cream! Long lines , teenagers working and there friends are coming in and scooping ice cream for themselves . Not professional, but the Rootbeer float was amazing!

We went there twice during our visit to the area. I had the coffee flavor both times. 2 size cups to choose from and they will mix flavors for you. Clean and the prices were right.

This is a quaint ice cream shop in downtown Lewes that is supposedly part of the Lewes tradition. While the service was quick and friendly, the ice cream was of grocery store quality for a very steep price.

Good location, good desert. I have had better at a local dairy but a lot of variety. Good for downtown Lewes

This is your basic ice cream place with approximately 20 basic flavors. Of the two servers, the young man was quite pleasant.

Nice flavor options, all homemade. Served with a smile in a clean, casual cafe setting. Within downtown makes it an easy walk-to treat.
